BIMCO has relaunched the Shipping KPI vessel benchmarking system, originally developed by InterManager in 2009 before being passed on to BIMCO in 2015, after two years of redesign.
InterManager has thrown its weight behind moves towards the 'paperless ship', as well as the introduction of minimum manning levels, following a meeting during Nor-Shipping 2015 in Oslo.
BIMCO has announced that it has taken ownership of the Shipping KPI System previously led by InterManager, which is used to compare ships’ efficiency against the performance of the industry and sector averages.
A study by the Danish Maritime Authority, supported by InterManager, has found that seafarers believe they are spending too much time on tasks they consider to be “an administrative burden.”
InterManager, the international trade association for the shipmanagement industry, says that 120 companies have now registered with its KPI Project, providing data from more than 1,600 vessels.
The Shipping Key Performance Indicator Project, initiated by InterManager but now administered by the independent KPI Association Ltd, has passed the milestone of adding the 1,000th vessel to the vessel data system.
