White Paper: The Unexpected Cost (and Benefit) of Weather for Maritime Shipping Companies

Sofar Ocean

It is no secret that weather affects a vessel's performance at sea, and in this white paper we quantify it. We highlight the outsized impact of wave resistance and use real voyage data to calculate annual weather-related fuel cost and emissions output for a typical bulk carrier and container ship. We also detail how voyage optimization solutions that use highly accurate weather forecasts — like Sofar's Wayfinder platform — minimize weather resistance and maximize time spent in favorable weather throughout an entire voyage.
