Containerships agrees deal for operational awareness system

Finland-based Containerships has agreed a deal to implement the Fleetrange Operational Awareness system to track and share real-time operational information, such as Estimated Times of Arrival (ETA), vessel locations and terminal status, with all relevant stakeholders within the company.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}“Our goal is to offer the most efficient and reliable door-to-door logistics to our customers in the cleanest possible way, and our investments in LNG-powered technology is a good example of how we improve the sustainability of our services,” said Pekka Järnefelt, sea operations director at Containerships.

“We are also always on the lookout for new technology, and we selected Fleetrange because we feel that their innovative Cloud solution will enable us to further improve our high service and safety levels.”

“The best thing with Fleetrange is that it combines and visualises all our relevant operational data into one easily accessible view for our wall displays, intranet and mobile phones. We can also utilise Fleetrange to automatically and systematically track and trend operational quality events, such as high winds in terminals or heavy weather along our routes.”

Fleetrange combines various external data sources with the company’s internal business information and processes. The system also includes an optional Internet of Things (IoT) unit, which offers real-time data from vessels, such as ship tracking, traffic monitoring, vessel motion and live video to improve situational awareness.

The application is built on an open architecture, with APIs available for both import and export of live data.

“We strongly believe in the value of working together with our customers and we regard ourselves as their digitalisation partners. We constantly keep track of new technological developments in areas such as process automation, machine learning and blockchain and we want to be enable our customers to benefit from these,” said Henrik Ramm-Schmidt, CEO and founder of Fleetrange.

“One such technology is BOQA, a methodology adopted from the flight industry and which is used to automatically track and trend operational quality events. We are proud to say that we will now start the official trials with Containerships of, what we believe, is the world’s first container ship BOQA solution and which includes both ships and terminals.”

BOQA is a Bridge Operational Quality Assurance system designed primarily for captains and fleet managers. The methodology is adopted from the aviation industry’s FOQA methodology, and is used to systematically and automatically track operational quality events, such as heavy weather along the route, heavy motion, crash stops, close encounters with other ships, and a variety of other parameters.{/mprestriction}
