This chapter discusses the development path of information communication technology (ICT) innovation cases, points out the costs and benefits they generate to maritime supply chain (MarSC) stakeholders, and analyses how ICT providers reach cost-effective outcomes. The research is carried out from the perspective of the ICT providers that have the goal of achieving a high number of users for their applications. The results show that by applying a mixed development approach (bringing together a multidisciplinary team), structurally investing in market update and using a public-private funding source for faster operation, ICT innovation achieves better cost-effectiveness in the supply chain (SC).
