Using locational data and information, monitor your vessels' precise location and receive alerts when critical events occur. Take real-time actions to improve vessel movement to achieve better fleet management.
Geofencing involves the creation of a virtual fence according to a user’s defined set of geographical boundaries. Using the global positioning system (GPS), users are notified about their vessels’ exact position and if they stay within the defined boundaries, together with other location-specific information like weather conditions.
With technology changing the way the maritime industry operates, geofencing has become an indispensable feature for owners and operators to keep track of offshore-support vessels (OSV) and fishing boats’ activities. This is so as vessels are out at sea almost all the time, and geofencing is a useful feature to have visibility on fleet movement. Even more importantly, geofencing supports vessel incident response and crew safety – should the crew face distress at sea, problems arising from weather conditions, or the vessel has to work in remote areas with limited communications with onshore staff, an emergency response can be triggered using the real-time and historical data on vessel movements to locate the vessel and follow-up assistance can be provided to the ship crew accordingly.
Having a robust, scalable platform like Shipulse Geofencing module helps ship owners and operators gain visibility of fleet movement to make informed operation decisions. With its easy-to-use features, the application enables better fleet management with real-time location-based information of vessels.
How the module works
The geofencing module complements the Shipulse Activity Manager Add On for overall energy efficiency across vessels and fleets.
