Hapag-Lloyd has announced plans to implement Portchain’s advanced fleet planning software to optimise workflows within voyage control and execution.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} Portchain, which provides advanced analytics and AI solutions for the shipping industry will combine large amounts of data with its proprietary machine learning algorithms to provide live insights on issues affecting the schedules of Hapag-Lloyd’s vessels. It will allow for a more proactive and collaborative way of working, improve planning and schedule reliability improvements, and reduce bunker fuel costs for the shipping company.

“We are strongly committed to further improve schedule reliability for our customers. To do this we are always looking for better and pioneering tools that enable us to improve our voyage control”, said Jörn Springer, senior director, fleet support centre at Hapag-Lloyd. “Portchain’s cloud-based solution provides powerful insights into the robustness of schedules and allows us to quickly make changes in real time. We look forward to creating additional value from this partnership for our customers.”

“As one of the leading ocean carriers, Hapag-Lloyd understands the need to be ahead of the curve when it comes to the adoption of digital solutions. At Portchain we are very excited to continue working with Hapag-Lloyd to help them realise their ambitions on schedule reliability and cost efficiency” said Thor Thorup, CCO, Portchain. “This partnership will allow us to grow our solution with one of the most important players in the shipping industry and we are excited about the value we can create for Hapag-Lloyd." {/mprestriction}

  • i4sea signs up as Inmarsat Fleet Data provider

    Brazil-based startup i4sea and Inmarsat have signed an agreement for i4sea to join a group of certified application providers to provide a dedicated application for Inmarsat’s Fleet Data service.

    Fleet Data collects data from onboard sensors, pre-processes that data, and uploads it to a central cloud-based database, equipped with a dashboard and an Application Programming Interface (API).

    The partnership came as a result of the Bluetech Accelerator, a program created by the Portuguese Ministry of the Sea in 2019 to create an ecosystem of maritime innovation and business acceleration. i4sea was one of 20 startups around the world – and the only one from Latin America - selected to develop pilot projects with maritime market leaders including Inmarsat.

    Headquartered in Salvador, Brazil and with offices in São Paulo, Shanghai and London, i4sea will provide a high-precision sea and weather forecasting application with up to seven days forecasting in advance through i4cast’s Atm Ocean tool.

    “As a Certified Application Provider, we will be constantly developing new features to generate increasingly powerful tools for the maritime market,” said i4sea CEO Bruno Balbi. “Working with a company like Inmarsat is really a great deal for i4sea and this is the first smart system that integrates in a single platform, all the essential tools to support decision making regarding vessel’s maneuvers and port terminal’s operations,” he said.

    Six integrated tools are offered and includes services such as ocean and weather hyperlocal forecasts, dynamic draft prediction, terminal efficiency analytics and analysis and prediction of siltation or erosion dynamics of the seabed.

    “We are delighted to be working with such an innovative start-up such as i4Sea, a company we worked with as part of the Portuguese Bluetech accelerator programme earlier this year,” said Marco Cristoforo Camporeale, head of digital Solutions, Inmarsat Maritime. “

    “This tie-up will allow ship operators and managers to both route plan and improve terminal efficiency and this is all achieved through the i4sea application on Fleet Data and via a secure platform that is fully scalable, fleet-wide and now commercially available on both Fleet Xpress and FleetBroadband,” said Mr Camporeale.

    Currently, i4sea's clients include Brazilian companies such as TECON Salvador (Wilson, Sons), Açu Petróleo, CSN Coal and Ore Terminal, Cotegipe Port, Bahia’s Maritime Authority, Itajaí Port, Enseada, among others. There are also international contracts with the ports of Leixões and Sines, in Portugal.
