Maersk Tankers partners with Klaveness Digital to gain access to a digital platform to store and manage large volumes of commercial and operational data.
The platform will allow Maersk Tankers to store data from multiple sources in one central location. Therefore, this will make it easier to share and collaborate with partners in developing new digital solutions.
Hence, this will bring digital solutions faster to the market and bring cost benefits to both parties.
Klaveness Digital has developed a cloud-based digital platform. It will store, process and export commercial and operational shipping data to tailored applications and users.
“We have one of the product tanker industry’s largest data sets on vessel voyages at our disposal,” says Peter Schroder, chief digital officer at Maersk Tankers.
“By partnering with Klaveness, we get to collaborate with a like-minded, digitally focused company.
“Using its platform will allow us to bring our digital solutions to the market faster. It also has the potential to give both companies cost benefits as the future development of the platform can be shared.”
Klaveness Digital has spent the past three and half years developing the platform. This platform is to serve as a foundation for data-driven decision-making, digital solutions and services.
The platform is based on Microsoft Azure, one of the world’s most secure and reliable cloud infrastructures.
Aleksander Stensby, MD of Klaveness Digital says transparency and collaboration are key to the future of the industry.
Following a pilot prior to the summer, Maersk Tankers will now begin uploading data to the platform. Concurrently, the partners will continue the dialogue on the co-development of the platform going forward.
