Fleet-Management

Fleet Management system is a powerful web-based service providing a highly effective way of automatically tracking vessel movements in real time. It was originally developed in close consultation with Sealand, a major US maritime transportation group prior to its acquisition by Maersk, and has since become the satellite tracking system of choice for 500 carriers operating 10,000 vessels.

The system utilizes the GMDSS Sat-C terminal already installed on most ocean-going vessels, or specialized GPS-enabled satellite tracking terminals including Inmarsat D+, Mini C, and Iridium.

Who would use it, and for what purpose?

Personnel involved in fleet operations, safety, and customer service use the system to improve overall operational efficiencies
