Maersk Line has started the implementation of DNV GL’s ShipManager software, with pilot testing on five vessels. The installation of ShipManager on their self-owned fleet of 250 vessels is scheduled for next year.
Maersk has chosen DNV GLs ShipManager system after a comprehensive selection process with 26 other shipmanagement software vendors globally.
As explained, the world’s largest container shipping company will gain from the off-the-shelf ship management system by increased process efficiency and improved access to and analysis of information.
“The feedback we have received so far from Ebba Maersk, a 15,500 TEU Container Ship, has been very positive.
The application is performing well, and the users have praised the application for its user-friendliness and the self-explanatory nature of the modules,” said Sebastiaan Van den Wijngaert, Senior Project Manager at Maersk Line IT.
“ShipManager will replace nine applications we use currently with one integrated, easier to learn, user-friendly and technically up-to-date application.”
Maersk Line will be using six integrated ShipManager modules: Technical, Procurement, Project, Crewing, QHSE and Analyzer.
With ShipManager Analyzer, it is possible to extract data from all of the modules for analysis.
