The shipping industry is a major contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. In 2020, the shipping industry accounted for 2.9% of global CO2 emissions. This is expected to increase to 5% by 2050 if no action is taken.


A shipping company was facing the challenge of reducing its fuel consumption and emissions. The company’s fleet of ships was traveling millions of miles each year, and the cost of fuel was a significant expense. The company was also committed to reducing its environmental impact.


The shipping company wanted to develop and implement an AI-powered ship routing solution. The solution uses AI to analyze real-time data on ship location, weather conditions, and fuel consumption to identify the most efficient routes for ships to travel.


Omdena worked with the shipping company to collect and prepare the data needed to train the AI model. Omdena also developed and evaluated the AI model using real-world data. Once the AI model was ready, Omdena integrated it with the shipping company’s existing navigation system.


After deploying the AI-powered ship routing solution, the shipping company experienced a 10% reduction in fuel consumption. This resulted in significant cost savings and a reduction in emissions. The company was also able to improve its customer service by delivering goods more efficiently.


The AI-powered ship routing solution helped the shipping company to reduce its fuel consumption and emissions, improve its operational efficiency, and reduce costs. The solution is an example of how AI can be used to solve real-world problems and make a positive impact on the environment.
