Marine Benchmark sign partnership with Kongsberg Digital to provide global business intelligence on Kognifai

Marine Benchmark has signed on to Kongsberg Digital’s maritime digital ecosystem through the Kognifai Partner Program. The maritime statistics provider will now bring their data and applications to Kognifai, providing insights about global shipping and trading to users of Vessel Insight.

In June, KONGSBERG launched Vessel Insight, a new subscription-based data infrastructure solution for vessels. Through the subscription, Vessel Insight users can collect and host large datasets from systems onboard vessels and get access to the Kognifai Marketplace with a number of value-adding applications available in the cloud. Now Marine Benchmark will offer their global maritime statistics platform on the Kognifai Marketplace so that vessel operators can combine data from their own vessels with Marine Benchmark’s data for analysis.

We believe Kongsberg’s new platform and Marine Benchmark global statistics platform will be a perfect match.

About Marine Benchmark

Marine Benchmark started 2012 as a spinoff from IHS Fairplay research center in Gothenburg. Started by people with a lifelong shipping experience who began to produce advanced vessel statistics long before AIS was available. Marine Benchmark’s matureness around maritime data comes from years of experience long before 2012. We quickly took the lead in developing vessel statistics based on AIS. Today Marine Benchmark holds an enormous information power within shipping and trade which hopefully will meet most of your needs.
