X-Press Feeders signs deal for decarbonisation platform on 100+ vessels


Technology company ZeroNorth has signed a new deal with X-Press Feeders to deploy the ZeroNorth platform across the carrier’s entire fleet of feeder vessels.

The terms of the deal will see the platform and its suite of vessel, voyage and CII optimisation services used across X-Press Feeders’ more than 100 vessels to contribute to the company’s decarbonisation strategy.

X-Press Feeders will benefit from increased transparency and reduced workload across its sea and shore operations, powering up decision-making with actionable insights that will improve profitability and sustainability in tandem with each other.

X-Press Feeders has committed to zero emissions by 2050, with a ramping efficiency improvement target through to 2035.

ZeroNorth’s platform improves efficiency by providing a clear indicator of vessel and fleet performance and uses a huge repository of data and fuel models to make recommendations on how to cut emissions and maximise CII ratings.

The platform uses vessel and fleet data, combined with the industry’s most authoritative data on market rates, weather, bunker price and availability to make its recommendations.

Its data and models allow the platform to make realistic recommendations based on conditions a vessel is facing at sea.

Jesper Bo Hansen, Chief Revenue Office at ZeroNorth, said: “The feeder container segment plays an absolutely integral role in global trade, and we are delighted to be able to partner with a recognised leader like X-Press Feeders to help propel their decarbonisation strategy and improve profitability across their fleet.”

Alex Hartnoll, Business Transformation, X-Press Feeders, added: “Decarbonisation and the reduction of GHG emissions from our operations are key strategic pillars for X-Press Feeders, and we are focused on improving the efficiency of our fleet through a variety of operational and technical initiatives.

“ZeroNorth and its industry-leading platform of technology solutions are an obvious fit for our commercial and environmental strategy because they offer a well-rounded solution that provides tangible and actionable insights to our shoreside staff and crew.”

Earlier this year X-Press Feeders launched its weekly Germany-Sweden X-press (GSX) service.
