What’s in it for me?

What’s in it for me?

Ship Owner and Operator

  • Fuel savings
    • Route optimization service(immediate)
      • Distance, squat, etc
    • Green steaming to STM ports (better port call synchronization)
  • Risk reduction
    • Route cross-checking service (immediate)
    • Monitoring services help avoid groundings (immediate)
    • More precise ice route information in the Baltic Sea (immediate)
    • Ship to ship route exchange – improved common situational awareness empowering the bridge (collision risk primarily)
    • Avoiding collision risks (by adjusting route, flow management)
  • Process improvements
    • Weather routes to ECIDIS system (immediate if SMHI)
    • Improved port calls in STM ports: Predicatbility, Turn-around time, (immediate)
      • Some aspect of this benefits also come ships without STM. Internal port improvements. (eg. Resource utilization, see port actors below)
  • (Public) Image
    • Reduced emissions (immediate)
    • Better avoiding sensitive areas (immediate?)
    • Less risk of grounding, less risk of badwill
    • A technology leader (immediate)

Port actor

  • Common situational awareness reduces lead times
    • Visibility automatically increases efficiency
    • Fewer misunderstandings – less waiting time
    • Both within port AND coordinating the port call with the ships
  • Resource utilization
    • Less resources need to be on “stand by”
      • Eg. Maintenance of tugs and pilot boats can be done during day time
    • Reducrion of non value added activitities
      • Eg. Calling to find out status of things
  • Common real-time information facilitates replanning
  • Opens for efficiency also with the hinterland operators
    • Sharing real-time estimates of cargo operations will be a great first step.
  • Leading to improved competitiveness versus non-STM port actors
  • Leading to improved competitiveness of the whole port versus non-STM ports
  • Potentially shorter port calls lead to less emission in port area

Authority and Government

  • Risk reduction
    • Monitoring services help avoid groundings (immediate)
    • More precise ice route information in the Baltic Sea (immediate)
    • Advising ships to avoid collision risks (by adjusting route, flow management)
  • Accident response
    • More efficient Search & Rescue (Route sharing)
  • Environmental
    • Better avoiding sensitive areas (immediate?)
    • Less risk of grounding, less risk of spill
  • Security
    • More efficient analysis of suspicious behavior (monitoring)

Bridge officer

  • Fuel (& emission) savings
    • Route optimization service(immediate)
      • Distance, squat, etc
    • Green steaming to STM ports (better port call synchronization)
  • Risk reduction
    • Route cross-checking service (immediate)
    • More precise ice route information in the Baltic Sea (immediate)
    • Ship to ship route exchange – improved common situational awareness empowering the bridge (collision risk primarily)
    • Avoiding collision risks (by adjusting route, flow management)
    • Monitoring services help avoid groundings (immediate)
  • Process improvements
    • Ice, Pilot and Weather routes to ECIDIS system (immediate)
    • Improved port calls in STM ports: Predicatbility, Turn-around time, (immediate)
      • Some aspect of this benefits also come ships without STM. Internal port improvements. (eg. Resource utilization, see port actors below)
    • Automated pre-arrival reporting (work in progress)

Service Provider

  • Larger available customer base (Standardised open API in open ecosystem)
  • Lower threshold for customers to introduce your service (less internal system adjustments)
  • Lower cost of introducing new services
  • Possibility to mesh your service with other services

Cargo Owner

  • Increased predictability of goods arrival and departures
  • The future possibility to have detailed knowledge of the goods all the way through the maritime part of the logistics chain
  • More efficient ports – shorter handling time
  • Easier planning together with logistics actors
