GAC upgrades shipping technology tool
GAC has updated its fleet monitoring system for the shipping industry in partnership with the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI).
The solution, Fleetweb 3.0, is the latest version of its web-based application which allows shipping operators to monitor and control fleet performance 24/7 to achieve greater operational and cost efficiency.
“This latest version is more than just an upgrade,” said global product development manager Lennart Cederberg, who oversees the software development team. “It is a complete makeover that overshadows previous releases.”
Fleetweb 3.0 is part of GAC SMHI Weather Solutions, which also offers onboard routing system and post voyage analysis (PVA) as part of its specialised portfolio of services aimed at helping vessels navigate in the safest and most economical way.
“Our weather solutions are developed by naval architects and professional meteorologists to deliver customised software that meets specific requirements for fleet performance management,” added Cederberg. “Unlike many existing applications which are designed by IT companies selling technology for weather solutions, our people have first hand experience of the maritime business.”
