Fleet Management makes Fleet Xpress preferred choice for 400-strong fleet

Fleet Management Limited (FML), which manages a fleet of over 400 vessels of various types with more than 14,000 crew, reports that it has upgraded all vessels previously equipped with Inmarsat’s XpressLink Ku-band service to the Ka-band Fleet Xpress service, and expects to roll out Fleet Xpress to the majority of its fleet globally by 2018.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Hong-Kong based ship manager will make Fleet Xpress its preferred communications system for the fleet of bulk carriers, container vessels, general cargo ships, oil tankers, gas carriers and chemical tankers under its management, using a Cobham 1m GX antenna for Ka-band connectivity combined with a FleetBroadband terminal for L-Band back-up.

“We have been working with Inmarsat for more than 20 years, so they have proven they are the most reliable satellite communication service provider and partner in the world,” said Mayank Mishra, general manager at Fleet Management Limited.

“We have been thoroughly impressed with the service provided by Inmarsat and expect to implement internet connectivity across the majority of our fleet as quickly as possible.”

“We are committed to delivering the best possible on-board user experience and look forward to bringing a new level of high-speed connectivity to our vessels.”{/mprestriction}
