YA-SA Ship Management signs fleet tracking deal

YA-SA Ship Management & Trading, based in Istanbul, Turkey, has agreed a contract for the supply of global vessel tracking and monitoring services from BigOceanData following a successful initial trial on five vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal covers fleet monitoring services for an initial twelve-month period for the YA-SA fleet of 26 bulk and tanker vessels, combining data from terrestrial and satellite AIS together with Inmarsat-C position reporting.

“We consulted with the YA-SA team over several weeks to ensure that they received a bespoke service exactly matching their requirements,” said Ryan Dawe, BigOceanData.

“This customisation and development work included such elements as abbreviating each vessel’s name and colour coding the different classes within the fleet as to enable YA-SA users to immediately distinguish between Panamax, Super Handy Max and other vessel types showing on their displays.”

The browser-based BigOceanData system allows fleet managers to monitor vessel locations and store this information for later analysis. It also issues automatic alerts if a vessel strays outside an approved route that has been previously input into the system.

“We at YA-SA Shipping and YA-SA Tanker need to know where our vessels are at all times. We also need to be able to monitor the conditions they are operating in at any time, including weather, sea-state, and position relative to certain defined zones, as well as the conditions that they may encounter ahead on their route,” said Mehmet Kayhan, general manager of YA-SA Ship Management & Trading.

“BigOceanData provides us with more capabilities to understand their present and future situations than other providers due to its advanced features and options.”{/mprestriction}
