Norwegian dry bulk owner Klaveness and Maersk Tankers have joined forces to collaborate on the the development of digital solutions.
The partnership gives Maersk Tankers access to the digital platform developed by Klaveness Digital, with the aim of bringing digital solutions to the market faster and providing cost benefits to both companies.
Klaveness has developed a cloud-based platform for storing, processing and exporting commercial and operational shipping data which will allow Maersk Tankers to store data from multiple sources in one central location.
Peter Schroder, chief digital officer at Maersk Tankers, commented: “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.”
Maersk Tankers will now start uploading data to the platform, having already completed a pilot project.
“Transparency and collaboration are key to the future of our industry, and this partnership demonstrates our shared vision that we are stronger together when working towards a common goal,” said Aleksander Stensby, managing director of Klaveness Digital.
