"Examining The Business Case for Ship Owners and their Customers"

Conference Introduction

Recunnect’s: The Shipping industry is steadily approaching a period of vast change. At a time when environmental concerns and energy prices remain high, savings on fuel can make a significant improvement to margins. Instant, accurate information on fuel consumption and routes can mean the difference between winning a customer and letting them go to a competitor. Meanwhile, increasing levels of automation and onshore vessel control are presenting opportunities to further reduce operational expenditure. Big data has the potential to underpin these cost savings and become the bedrock of future competitive advantage for shipping companies. The question remains, what are the true costs involved in setting it up and running the required systems? And what payoff can ship owners expect to gain from it over what timeframe? Big Data & Performance Management in Shipping 2015 will investigate the industry’s experiences of utilising the data that the shipping industry has at hand including on board systems, satellite, AIS and weather information. It will also explore the possibilities for the future such as whether we will be able to access data on activity in ports and, if so, what can we do with it?

Key Highlights:

  • Find out what other ship owners are looking to get out of their data and new systems
  • Gain a clearer picture of the business case for using big data for performance improvements
  • Learn how on board, AIS, weather and satellite data can be analysed to reduce fuel consumption
  • See what major shipping companies are doing with predictive maintenance and what payoff they’re seeing from it
  • Analysis of the future potential for data use for performance optimisation
