Welcome to our first edition of the AIS Station Update in 2023 and see how we extended our terrestrial AIS coverage worldwide. From time to time we inform you about the steady growth of the number of AIS stations we are setting up worldwide. This time we present you the expansion of our network between last December and this March.
In 2021, we started to put the spotlight on our passionate ship spotters. Each month, we showcase a different photographer of FleetMon.com. In March 2023, you’ll meet a maritime enthusiast from South Africa (User name: Schalk_van_Bosch) who joined FleetMon in 2014.
International Women’s Day, celebrated annually on March 8th, is a day to honor women’s achievements and to support gender equality and gender justice. This year’s theme set by the United Nations, “Each for Equal,” calls on everyone to work towards a gender-equal world for all.
At FleetMon, we are proud to have twelve women on our team – about half of them are in management positions.
Exciting times at FleetMon, MarineTraffic, and Kpler! We reported last week on the significant acquisition of our company along with MarineTraffic by Kpler, which promises to shake up the maritime data market. Since the announcement, everyone has been excited about what this new partnership will mean for the teams and the industry.
FleetMon is currently supporting the research project of Dr. Alexandra Muscalus from the Georgia Institute of Technology (“Georgia Tech”) in Atlanta, Georgia. She uses AIS data from FleetMon to investigate the impact of low-frequency ship wake on shorelines in the far-field.
Exciting news: Kpler, the leading provider of commodities data and analysis, has acquired FleetMon and MarineTraffic. Together, we are meeting the challenges of the maritime data market by uniting two AIS networks and combining our expertise with Kpler to create a maritime data stack.
In 2021, we started to put the spotlight on our passionate ship spotters. Each month, we showcase a different photographer of FleetMon.com. In February 2023, you’ll meet a maritime enthusiast from Japan (User name: senba) who joined FleetMon in 2020.
They are the queens of the oceans and the essential form of transport in international trading. Container ships handle around 90 percent of the world’s goods trade. According to the ICS, around 50,000 merchant ships are plying around the globe – 5,000 of them are called container ships. In our first edition of the Maritime Gallery, we take a look at these giants and present to you the ten largest container ships by TEU from the year 2022.
So, thanks to all of our loyal ship spotter out there for these impressive shots!
Over the past two days, FleetMon hosted the second bi-national meeting of our MAREMIS research project here in Rostock. Together with our project partners from IHPC in Singapore, we are developing machine learning-based models and a demonstrator to measure, track, and validate emissions-related aspects of maritime transport to reduce emissions from ships. See what we have achieved so far.
