Big Data in Shipping

How can data-driven technologies help shipping become more sustainable?


Big data will play a key role in the future of decarbonisation of shipping.
The way a ship is operated dramatically impacts its fuel consumption and its carbon emissions. The same cargo could have a very different carbon footprint, depending on whether it is transported by two smaller vessels or one large vessel. Big data can help us to acurately analyse the environmental impact. For example charterers will be able to select the vessels moving their cargo, taking into account their environmental performance, by proactively managing both the cargo leg and the ballast leg.
