Shipping Industry Groups Launch Free Ship Efficiency Portal

At the World Ocean Council's Sustainable Ocean Summit, 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.

Galen Hon, shipping operation manager with Carbon War Room, says: “BetterFleet illustrates where and how much efficiency varies for ships, in order to identify potential sources of inefficiencies, find opportunities to optimize operations, and reduce costs for everyone. It will also empower owners to begin conversations with their charterers and shippers about how operations affect the bottom line, carbon emissions, and the environment.”

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. BetterFleet displays metrics and visuals to provide a holistic view of the ship’s operation.
