AIS vessel tracking service, MarineTraffic, has joined the Green Award scheme.
An increasing number of ship operators are using intelligence derived from AIS data to analyse, measure and drive a range of efficiencies across their fleets. On average, MarineTraffic receives position transmissions from 140,000 individual vessels per day.
MarineTraffic will provide three key incentives to certified shipowning companies:
- 10% discount for any online subscription plan, including Enhanced Satellite Tracking for fleets (combining Inmarsat C-polling with AIS data).
- An extended free trial of MarineTraffic ship tracking systems. Certified companies will receive a three-month free trial for plans of their choosing, for an unlimited number of users, with premium support from the Customer Success team.
- Green Award logo prominently displayed on each certified vessel’s and company’s page on www.marinetraffic.com
Demitris Memos, MarineTraffic, managing director, said: “MarineTraffic joining the Green Award scheme is a happy marriage of shared aims and values. Being able to analyse trading patterns is key to evaluating the effectiveness of any new product or service on board a ship. By providing top quality commercial data and vessel tracking services to companies and organisations around the world, we aim to play our role in promoting clean and safe ship operations and increasing the transparency and efficiency of shipping.”
Dimitrios Mattheou, Green Award chairman said: “Monitoring of fleet vessels is a vital element for shipowners, operators and other involved bodies into the shipping industry, providing situational awareness and information on the progress of each voyage. Marine Traffic provides an improved AIS tracking service, through a comprehensive database, having built a global reputation as being the most reliable platform in vessel tracking. Marine Traffic, AIS vessel tracking service, has created a daydream wish come true.”
Also joining the scheme recently was Athens-based software concern, Danaos Management Consultants.
Mattheou handed over the Green Award plaque to Dimitris Theodossiou, Danaos co-founder and managing director to commemorate the company’s official acceptance as a new incentive provider on 11th November.
Green Award certificate holders are now entitled to a 10% discount on all the company’s product licenses and services and to a one year’s free subscription to DanaosONE platform.
“I strongly believe on collaboration and incentives like Green Awards. In this essence Danaos technology can potentially integrate all Green Award members for the mutual benefit in efficiency, economy, quality and seaworthy shipping,” said Theodossiou.
“It is impossible to imagine the shipping industry these days without information technology solutions. Databases and online platforms enhance information and data exchange in the maritime industry, allow making of fast and right decisions and encourage easier co-operation of parties. They are an integral part of many shipping businesses,” said Mattheou.
“I am glad that Danaos Management Consultants has joined the Green Award scheme, entitling our certificate holders to favourable prices if they choose to add DanaosONE platform to their IT solutions package.“
