Ocean Network Express (ONE) has expanded its partnership with intelligent solutions provider StormGeo and will now have wider access to ship routing services.
The continued collaboration with StormGeo’s weather intelligence, ship routing, and fleet performance intelligence, will ensure greater safety, maintenance, and performance monitoring for ONE.
The expansion of the partnership means ONE’s 250-vessel fleet now has the StormGeo s-Planner BVS installed, utilising accurate forecast information to avoid potentially damaging sea conditions.
ONE’s onshore staff also have access to StormGeo’s s-Insight web platform, giving instant visibility of the location and performance of their entire fleet.
Sachin Sirsikar, General Manager Global Vessel Operations of ONE said, “StormGeo’s products and services are an essential part of our onboard and onshore operations.
“Having access to weather forecasts specific to our voyages helps us manage our strict ETAs with a focus on safety and fuel efficiency.
“In a time of digitalisation and sustainability within shipping, we are proud to partner with a company who prioritises these values as much as we do.”
The partnership between the two parties began in July 2019. Since then, the partnership expanded to include enhanced routing, ETA services for sensitive trade routes, and fleet-wide installation of StormGeo’s onboard software s-Planner BVS.
Kim Sørensen, COO of Shipping for StormGeo, said, “Our customer service teams have a great relationship with ONE, particularly with their Global Ocean Route Advisory team in Singapore.
“We work hard to ensure their fleet is safe, timely and fuel efficient, utilising constant power to optimise their passages.”
