Poster summary

The poster discusses the advancements in RORO (Roll-On/Roll-Off) shipping technology and its implications for maritime transportation in Brazil. It highlights the significant potential of new technologies and system adaptability to enhance maritime logistics and reduce greenhouse gas emissions, which aligns with global decarbonization efforts. It points out that Brazil's busy port activity, especially at the ports of Santos and Itajaí, positions the country as a prime candidate for deploying such innovations. The document suggests that these advancements can contribute to the growth of knowledge and the development of more efficient practices within the maritime industry, leaning towards a more sustainable future.
