According to The Business Research Company’s Consultant, Nitin Gianchandani, an automated routing system, aligned with historic routes of large cargo sailors, will allow cargo ships to reach their destination as quickly, and at a much cheaper cost. Companies can implement this for faster transportation. Companies can invest in towing kite wind propulsion systems for modern means of sea travel and transportation. These systems make the operation of ships more profitable, safe, environment friendly, and independent of scarce oil resources. The Skysails system consists of a large towing kite similar to a paraglider, which is navigated by a fully- automated control pod and is connected to the ship via a towing rope.
