The global maritime industry is currently facing a wide range of challenges stemming from geopolitical changes, new IMO regulations, technological evolution including AI, threats to global trade growth and the need for greater sustainability. Location intelligence maps can help address a majority of these concerns.


A maritime company from the Philippines was looking for better management solutions to analyze the sailing routes and detect potential troubles that could be encountered along the route. Services such www.vesselfinder.com help to track vessels by their MMSI number in real-time, but they don’t provide information on the complete route, making it difficult to form a comprehensive image of route efficiency and control wasted expenditures.

Our solution

To address this challenge, Aspectum created a map of Philippine waters, then placed location points sent by the vessel’s AIS (automatic identification system), which allows maritime companies to track vessels and avoid collisions. Then, they are connected to routes for each specific ship. These routes are classified by color, which display whether the vessel was under motorized or sail locomotion, moored or at anchor with restricted maneuverability, or not under command. 


As a result, maritime companies can easily see issues encountered by any vessel on its route, simply by filtering by its MMSI number. In addition, they can check the route length or vessel speed and compare it with the average speed of the vessels from the same class. If the difference is significant, this could be a reason to conduct a more detailed investigation, as this might be a sign of a potential technical or management problem.

Identifying non-optimal routes, and optimizing them, can help to avoid unnecessary expenses, as well as provide ship operations with data on technical issues.
