Weathernews Inc. and Dataloy Systems AS have announced that the two companies have entered into a strategic partnership agreement that will facilitate data collection via API data integrations. The agreement unites Dataloys’ streamlined global technology platform for voyage management with the world’s largest private weather database, managed by Weathernews Inc.
The primary objective of the integration is to go beyond “route planning” by incorporating multiple data feeds and situational alerts to more accurately assess weather conditions, alternative routes based on historical data, speed, bunker consumption, TCE, laycans, and vessel schedules, making it an important decision and operations management tool.
“The integration of Weathernews’ weather-enriched data into the Dataloy Voyage Management System (VMS) will enable our customers to more proactively identify weather events and constraints, as well as plan alternative routes based on historical data. As a result of this new integration, customers will benefit from operational efficiencies and fuel savings,” says Erik Fritz Loy, CEO of Dataloy Systems. “I am delighted to welcome Weathernews as our technology partner and look forward to working with them to achieve great things.”
“We are very excited about this partnership. By integrating our data and services into the Dataloy VMS, we will enable our joint customers to take fast and right decisions in support of lower costs, reduced emissions, and improved safety based on our expertise and vast data bank of historical weather data,” says Henrik Faurschou, Global Product and Market Strategy Leader at Weathernews Inc.
