    ONE and StormGeo partner to enhance safety and fuel efficiency for 250-vessel fleet

    StormGeo, the leader in weather intelligence, ship routing and fleet performance management solutions, announced it has increased its partnership with Ocean Network Express (ONE), the sixth largest container carrier in the world. This cooperation gives ONE access to a wider range of ship routing services—ensuring the safety of their fleet, maintenance of their operating schedules and close monitoring of all related performance criteria as they work toward their supply chain goals.

    The partnership began in July 2019, and as ONE’s internal evaluations proved the value of StormGeo’s services, the partnership expanded to include enhanced routing, ETA services for sensitive trade routes, and fleet-wide installation of StormGeo’s onboard software, s-Planner BVS.

    Sachin Sirsikar, General Manager Global Vessel Operations of ONE said, “StormGeo’s products and services are an essential part of our onboard and onshore operations. Having access to weather forecasts specific to our voyages helps us manage our strict ETAs with a focus on safety and fuel efficiency. In a time of digitalization and sustainability within shipping, we are proud to partner with a company who prioritizes these values as much as we do.”

    Route recommendations provided by StormGeo to the ONE fleet are widely accepted by both shore and onboard staff. Kim Sørensen, StormGeo’s COO Shipping, believes this is largely due to the trust that has been built between the two companies.

    According to Sørensen, “Our customer service teams have a great relationship with ONE, particularly with their Global Ocean Route Advisory team in Singapore. We work hard to ensure their fleet is safe, timely and fuel efficient, utilizing constant power to optimize their passages. It’s truly a win-win cooperation.”

    As part of the recent expansion of the partnership, ONE vessels now have StormGeo s-Planner BVS installed, which utilizes frequent, accurate forecast information to ensure avoidance of potentially damaging sea conditions. ONE’s onshore staff also have access to StormGeo’s s-Insight web platform, giving instant visibility of the location and performance of their entire fleet.
