Maritime Executive discusses maritime shipping companies that are leveraging Sofar Ocean's superior weather forecasts. The forecasts are powered by Sofar's global network of ocean sensors helping vessels significantly reduce costs and emissions.
Maritime shipping companies are increasingly turning to voyage optimization platforms to reduce the impact of weather on fuel consumption and emissions. Sofar's Wayfinder solution leverages its extensive network of marine weather sensors, which collect over 1.5 million direct observations daily, resulting in forecasts that are up to 70% more accurate compared to traditional satellite-based platforms. Wayfinder integrates these superior forecasts to calibrate vessel performance models and offer dynamic voyage optimization, resulting in enhanced vessel efficiency, cost savings, and safety.
