It is obvious for maritime professionals that vessel efficiency is a complex thing with lots of different factors affecting it. Weather, the technical state of the vessel, just-in-time arrival, route geometry, and many others might affect your cost in the wrong direction. For our artificial intelligence solution, it takes only 1 minute to analyze the historical routes of your fleet and give you a clear understanding of where you can save money and what caused the inefficiency.

And we are glad to give you free trial access for one of your vessels to test the solution and understand in detail your voyage specifics. Only having the IMO of the vessel the algorithm is able to give you a lot of insights.

Our solution works within the following frameworks of efficiency analysis:

The special dashboard helps to understand the impact of the factors on fleet efficiency and ecological class. The Marine Digital advantage is that CII assessment is synchronized with SEEMP factor analysis. Take a close look at the Marine Digital Fleet intelligence platform
