Data-sharing agreement

Mitsui OSK Line ups ship data network

by Port News Editorial Staff

Sharing more and more information to implement safety conditions on ships, mitigate environmental pollution and rationalize transport costs.

These are the objectives of the agreement reached over the last few days between Mitsui Osk Lines and Ship Data Center (Ship DC), a subsidiary of ClassNK classification society and owner of a digital platform called IoS Open.

In particular, the Japanese shipping company has committed to making information and data concerning 180 ships in its fleet fully available and therefore usable.

The Internet of Ships Open Platform (IoS-OP) is a universal platform operated by Ship DC under the supervision of the IoS-Op Consortium, currently made up of 57 organizations.
