BetterFleet

BetterFleet is a tool bringing unprecedented performance transparency to the global shipping industry.

What is BetterFleet?

Shipping Efficiency’s BetterFleet initiative spotlights how efficiently ships are operated with a free-to-access ship operational efficiency portal on ShippingEfficiency.org, which compares a ship’s operation over the past year against its peers.

Why it Matters

The shipping industry is under increasing international pressure to reduce its environmental impact. Although the more efficient design of new ships is regulated, the majority of ships currently trading internationally are not subject to any greenhouse gas emission regulations. The lack of transparent data makes emissions reduction a complex challenge.

What We’re Doing

The BetterFleet portal on ShippingEfficiency.org will allow any registered user to see the path and performance of a specific vessel over a 12-month period. The portal currently includes a large portion of the tanker, bulk carrier, and container ship fleets, and more vessel types and sizes will be added over time.

What We’ve Accomplished

BetterFleet was launched in November 2016, at the World Ocean Council’s Sustainable Ocean Summit, by Carbon War Room, exactEarth, and University Maritime Advisory Service.
