Norwegian fertiliser giant Yara is trialling the first autonomous container ship in a two-year pilot.

The global maritime industry is a major emitter of greenhouse gases, and this could be one step towards a green shipping revolution. BBC news covers the story in this short video. The ship will cut 1,000 tonnes of CO2 and replace 40,000 trips by diesel-powered trucks a year!
