Why Is Weather Important for the Shipping & Offshore Industry?

Critical Weather Conditions on the High Seas and Ports

The international shipping industry is responsible for the transport of around 90% of world trade. Therefore, weather conditions on the high seas and at ports highly impact the supply chain.

Working with appropriate data to monitor ocean and mainland conditions will help you react in time to:

  • adjust timetables and routes
  • increase punctuality
  • ensure the safety of your workforce and cargo
  • minimize the structural impacts from weather exposure on your ships
  • have more efficient fuel consumption
  • improve loading and unloading efficiency

Weather Data for Sustainable Shipping

Gone are the days of the caravels. Today, ships are powered by petroleum products that release pollutants into the atmosphere.

Oil spills into the ocean are another side effect of shipping activities. Sometimes the accidents’ causes are related to the weather. Extreme weather conditions – such as hurricanes, storm surge, fog, ice flows, or high winds – may impact the course of vessels, leading to collisions.

Weather data will help you:

  • understand and lower fuel consumption
  • improve bunker costs
  • manage carbon intensity levels
  • prevent accidents

When it comes to voyage performance and charter party compliance, up-to-date weather data plays a key role. We are now able to overlay the most up-to-date, weather data on the map and have on-demand forecasts for voyages. This allows for operations to react by adjusting timetables and routes, providing efficiencies in fuel consumption, more optimized ordered speed, increased reliability in arrival times and improved navigational safety.
