Over in Japan, the country's shipping companies are looking to work with shipbuilders to help develop self-navigating technology where cargo ships will be able to navigate the seas by themselves, or with a small crew. The aim is to get these into service by 2025, where the use of the technology will help ships figure out the safest, shortest, and most fuel-efficient routes which in turn should help to keep costs down and profit margins higher.
