MarineFields and Inmarsat have signed a Memorandum of Understanding, to partner in investigating how sea traffic management and satellite connectivity can make port calls more efficient for all stakeholders. The joint effort will be focused on providing port call optimization services resulting in just-in-time operations and shortened turn-around times. 

The aim of the project will be to focus on enhanced standardised data sharing, and enable third party providers to bring new and innovative services to key stakeholders in the maritime industry, through improved information sharing, situational awareness, optimised processes, and collaborative decision making.

MarineField’s Perseus PortCDM will connect the various stakeholders involved in, or related to, sea transport, including vessels, shipping companies, ports, terminals, and hinterland operators.

“We hope that this will develop into a long-term, fruitful cooperation. The main objective of this partnership is to make informed collaborative decisions by shared information while at the same time providing all stakeholders in the port call process the opportunity to develop innovative services and applications” said Socrates Theodossiou, Managing Director, MarineFields Holding Ltd.

Perseus PortCDM will utilise the Inmarsat satellite network infrastructure, Fleet Xpress.

“Fleet Xpress has been purposely designed to empower third party application providers to enhance existing services to all companies in the maritime industry and MarineFields’ Perseus PortCDM will help improve the inefficiencies in the entire port call process through the power of Inmarsat’s satellite connectivity,” said Ronald Spithout (pictured right), President of Inmarsat Maritime.
