Global shipping, despite being the largest mode of transport, suffers from operational inefficiencies, lack of visibility, transparency leading to trade leakage. Ship owners, operators, charter agencies and insurance companies are now focusing on smarter technology-backed processes to ensure “high vessel availability, seaworthiness and predictability” with digital systems .

SSH “ship-to-shore and shore-to-ship” based fleet management using smart sensors, IOT, big data saves substantial operational costs while improving travel efficiency. The digital platform helps predict possible machine downtime, malfunctions, identify performance deviations, vessel routes to improve voyage and vessel performance. SSH’s “Marine Insights” is a unique maritime big data platform providing actionable intelligence, smart alerts and performance advice for the entire fleet using millions of records.

SSH’s global customers are able to achieve their goals of “minimum breakdown maintenance”, “optimal fuel utilization”, “full compliance, including emissions”, “cost optimization through condition monitoring and a much higher level of “travel control”. “performance consulting” feature reduces the number of incidents for these vessels while reducing maintenance and fuel costs. Future-ready maritime companies contribute to the creation of a connected ecosystem: connected vessels, shared services (routes, capacity, supply) and a “pay-as-you-go” model with digital SSH.

Joy BasuFounder of Smart Ship Hub adds, “Digital platforms will play a fundamental role in disrupting legacy maritime processes. Inefficient and legacy workflows in ships and ashore are gradually giving way to automated remote management. funds will enable us to pass on more value to our customers worldwide.Customers will now have a captive performance center at a fraction of the cost they incur today.Vessel owners, operators and charterers can get a digital upgrade for “zero” capex, allowing them to unlock their capital and upgrade more ships”.
