About the Sea Transport Industry Digital Plan (IDP)
Aligned to the Sea Transport Industry Transformation Map (ITM), the Sea Transport Industry Digital Plan (IDP) is part of the SMEs Go Digital programme which aims to make going digital simple for SMEs. The Sea Transport IDP provides a step-by-step guide on the digital solutions local SMEs in the Sea Transport industry can adopt at each stage of their growth.
The Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA), in partnership with the Maritime & Port Authority of Singapore and the industry, has jointly developed the Sea Transport IDP. The IDP will continue to be updated over time as the industry progresses and newer, more relevant technologies are introduced, supporting the SMEs Go Digital programme and Singapore's digitalisation efforts.
