Captain Hyldager: “It is our collective belief that shipping is overly inward-looking and ripe for change"

A new start-up promises to help operators improve efficiency using Big Data analytics to support business decisions and to transform port calls covering all key regions.

Nisomar, which has been set up by the former Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) CEO, Captain Claus Hyldager, says that it has pioneered a method of collecting global shipping data using new technology that generates highly accurate business-critical data.

Captain Claus Hyldager, CEO of Nisomar, said: “Based on our personal experiences and feedback from large and small companies, it is our collective belief that shipping is overly inward-looking, and ripe for change.”

“Unsatisfactory margins and many organisations’ inability to respond quickly enough to an ever-changing world is for everyone an unsatisfactory status quo.”

He added that the Nisomar method will help the industry plan better in advance and avoid having to make last minute ‘adjustments’ shortly before vessel arrivals or departures, helping save operators time and money.

It will do this by giving the maritime sector access to a wealth of business-critical data, including critical vessel data, trade flow and cargo availability, port congestion, vessel line up and turnaround efficiency.  

The Nisomar launch team includes Jon Bumstead, who led software business ShipNet, until its sale in March 2017 and Jesper Steenbuch who has held leadership positions at major maritime companies including A P Moller-Maersk, Seven Seas Group and Wave Shipping.
