MarineTraffic and NAPA have agreed a deal to collaborate in the development of new voyage planning, optimisation, and analysis services for the shipping industry.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The two companies have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) setting out their plans for post-voyage analysis reporting, voyage planning, weather routing and other new services.

“The collaboration makes NAPA’s vessel specific performance modelling and weather routing algorithms available to vast numbers of new users,” said Pekka Pakkanen, director of development at NAPA Shipping Solutions.

“These include many new stakeholders, such as short-term charterers, port agencies and other shoreside organisations, who traditionally do not have access to such data and the benefits it can bring when combined with advanced analytics. Transparency and collaboration are a must for truly improving the operational efficiency of shipping, and we believe this partnership is a major milestone in achieving that.”

The companies say they will immediately begin developing products and services, which include a post-voyage analysis reporting system to allow ship operators to examine alternative fuel saving routes; voyage planning which includes port congestion forecasts and the development of a weather routing system.

NAPA will provide its ship performance, analytics and naval architecture expertise, including fuel consumption estimates and weather routing algorithms, whilst MarineTraffic will provide ship tracking data, event algorithms, and technical support.{/mprestriction}
