Voyage optimization strategies are key in supporting the maritime industry’s digital and decarbonization journey. By leveraging both ship operational data and weather data, ship managers and charterers receive insights to operate efficiently and meet sustainability goals, such as recommendations for instructed speed and rpm that give a competitive edge. It starts with the ability to connect the crew and shoreside team to the data through seamless integration with a single, unified platform. All of which is achieved through the ABS My Digital Fleet™ platform and its voyage optimization capability, powered by Sofar Ocean.
