Fitness equipment manufacturer Pro Maxima was getting weighed down from reclassifying most of their freight shipments. Now, they’re gaining a whole new level of efficiency without the pain of reclassifying all that freight. See how the team from FedEx developed a high-performance solution and busted myths about shipping tools in the process. Learn more about FedEx Ship Manager® at fedex.com/freighttools.
We understand that shipping is a highly efficient form of transport, but it is also, according to independent analysis from management consultants Booz & Co., "the largest potential energy efficiency opportunity in the transportation sector where new financing models will make a difference." ShippingEfficiency.org is an initiative launched by the Carbon War Room and industry-leading partners to increase information flows around international shipping's energy efficiency and ultimately help reduce the environmental impacts of the world's shipping fleet.
This webinar summarizes a recent ICCT study on the potential for increased shipping efficiency through adoption of industry-leading practices in the maritime fleet. That study was a novel analysis connecting 2011 in-use fleet characteristics, first-ever global satellite data on ship movement, and technical literature on ship efficiency technology to assess the long-term prospects for increasing shipping efficiency. Operational efficiency varies substantially in international shipping. Industry-leading ships are about twice as efficient as industry laggards across major ship types. More widespread dissemination of technical and in-use practices followed by industry leaders could potentially reduce CO2 in absolute terms even as business-as-usual freight movement doubles.

Optimised and efficient use of the ship's cargo space has a direct impact on ship's earning ability. Flexible and smooth tweendeck operations help to accommodate various combinations of cargoes and enable better business opportunities.
Electric Blue, a modular container feeder design, where gensets, fuel, batteries and even crew quarters, are housed in easily swappable containers. This modularisation makes sense at a fleet level, where individual vessels can be optimised for specific routes taking advantage of standard interfaces to swap modules to meet the requirements of customers, ports and environmental legislation. A virtual bridge is located below cargo comprising automatic look-out and decision support with intelligence based on advanced analytics, making it autonomous operation-ready.”
