Supply Chain Managers May Expect Improved Ocean Fleet Tracking in 2017
December 20, 2016
A new global environmental service was ushered in at this month’s World Ocean Council’s Sustainable Ocean Summit in Rotterdam.
A coalition comprising Carbon War Room, exactEarth, and University Maritime Advisory Service (UMAS) launched BetterFleet, a free-to-access ship operational efficiency portal on ShippingEfficiency.org.
Based on similar data and methods used by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to assess the world fleet, BetterFleet shows how efficiently an individual vessel has operated over the past year and compares it against its peers.
BetterFleet provides free-to-access efficiency data to support the shipping industry’s many different stakeholders, and particularly those who use it as part of their supply chain, to understand the comparative energy efficiency of different vessels and identify actions to reduce emissions and costs.
The BetterFleet portal will allow any registered user to search by ship name or IMO number to see the performance of that vessel over a 12-month period.
