Connected Vessel

Use Case

Improving maritime transport efficiency with connected vessels

Improving shipping performance is essential for logistics and marine fleets. Ensuring your vessels deliver goods on time is only one of the objectives, making sure they can arrive with better fuel consumption and reduced emissions reduces costs and helps ensure your organization remains compliant with ever-increasing environmental regulations.

The challenge to overcome is the number of disparate systems on these ships and the lack of a central management process to create baselines and improve performance overall.

With improved connectivity across these systems, fleet operations can be improved and money can be saved.

Supported Industries

We have a solution

Efficiency in shipping performance drives several benefits.

This solution use case, provided by Atos Codex on the MindSphere® platform,

enables customers to connect shipping vessels and improve core performance metrics that drive cost benefits for the fleet.

Enabling fleet operations to understand vessel location and route while planning for weather and currents is the first step in optimizing vessel fuel performance. With the ability to optimize the auxiliary engine, improve waste heat recovery and soot blowing, this application enables improved efficiency across each connected vessel.

Using combined fleet analytics, baselines are established allowing best practices and processes to be deployed to each vessel. This reduces fuel consumption and automated regulatory tracking helps eliminate manual audit processes.


  • Track vessel location against routes, weather, and currents.
  • Fleet benchmarking enables improved performance across all vessels.
  • Regulatory emmission reporting and remote vessel diagnostics.
  • Auxiliary engine optimization, waste heat recovery, & soot blowing all help improve efficiency of vessel performance.


  • Reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions.
  • Increase the efficiency of fleet operations.
  • Automated tracking helps eliminate manual auditing processes.
