• Research & Development at FleetMon

Driving Maritime Innovation with Smart Technologies and Ambitious Minds

Our research approach at FleetMon is based on two different objectives. First of all, we want to play an active role in shaping the maritime industry’s future. Therefore, we raise challenging questions and investigate innovative methods. We support researchers and innovators by offering access to the FleetMon API Suite and our extensive AIS Data Archive with historical vessel position and port call data. Combining those resources with the distinct know-how of our engineers and the maritime network we grew over time empowers us to develop innovative applications for the maritime domain.

For contributing to a greener and safer future of shipping, we collaborate with numerous well-known institutes and universities worldwide. Since FleetMon was established in 2010, more than 120 research institutes and universities contacted us to seek support. Our involvement ranges from onetime data deliveries to students or institutes, conducting field studies, to managing major funded research projects.

On the other hand, our research approach is customer-oriented. Our mission is to support our customers from the maritime industry to better cope with their maritime challenges. For this reason, we collaborate with a wide variety of partners, e.g., national and international research institutes, universities, shipping companies, global players of the logistics industry, consultants, and maritime interest groups. Our maritime network helps us to understand the needs and gaps in demand of the stakeholders. We conduct research and development to improve our products in line with customer needs.

Let’s just say, we combine intelligent technologies, creative minds, and a client-focused approach to drive maritime innovation.
