OneOcean, a software provider for the maritime industry, has acquired Shipping Guides, specialists in global port data, in an effort to improve visibility and planning capability.

In a statement, OneOcean said the Guide to Port Entry intelligence will be integrated into its platforms, further enhancing voyage planning capability. 

Furthermore, OneOcean said the deal will allow its customers make more cost-effective decisions.

The proprietary data includes pre-arrival information and intelligent geographical polygons for all port areas, including port limits, anchorages, pilot areas and environmental information, the company said.

This data complements the voyage planning and decision-making workflow, particularly in the areas of port congestion, environmental monitoring and global information on shipping activities.

Martin Taylor, CEO of OneOcean, said, ““There is much debate and discussion about the best methods of optimisation in the maritime industry.

“At OneOcean, we believe having the best data to start the analysis is an essential first step to power the algorithms and give the best quality outputs.

“The Guide to Port Entry data will sit alongside our already comprehensive information on compliance, navigation and environmental factors to provide our customers with the best tools to enable decision making.”

Feargal Hogan, Technology Director responsible for Guide to Port Entry, “OneOcean will help us move further forward in providing the infrastructure and expertise for our customers to use our data through the considerable OneOcean digital footprint.

“The quality and capability of the data will now be even more accessible within the sector and we look forward to building further on the next level of intelligence and integration.”
