The Economic flows and Financial resource flows are of great importance in the world trade economy. Developments that develop as the common denominator of these trends and which affect the world economies are known as “Industrial Revolutions”. These Indsutrial Processes which have been increasingly influential since the early 18 centuries and reshaped the economies of the whole countries, have reached a new stage today and are defined as Industry 4.0. As a result of the effects of industry 4.0, autonomous ships which are developing technology products, are also preparing to serve in maritime transportation and maritime trade sector. It is clear that all these developments will continue to be implemented within the framework of unchanging maritime and environmental rules. In this study trying to explain all comments and observations on how the Industry 4.0 and autonomous ships could be integrated into the marine environment during the maritime transportation on maritime trade sector.
