Benefits include optimised route planning, reduced operating expenditure and emissions, while there is less administration on ships and more control over fleet performance from shore.

These can have extreme impacts on seafarer life, the environment and owners’ assets and cargo. Which is why measures to improve navigation safety through better data exchange are essential to reduce accidents.
