ShipIn expands presence in Asia with ABL deal


ShipIn Systems, the world’s first AI visual analytics platform that monitors safety, operations, and maintenance onboard, has secured its first Indonesian client in a deal with Asian Bulk Logistics (ABL).

The agreement will see ShipIn installing its platform, FleetVision™, on vessels owned and operated by ABL, the Jakarta-based integrated sea logistics and infrastructure company. ABL has invested in the AI-powered platform as part of its ongoing strategy to foster a culture of safety onboard, using the latest technology.

The platform detects events onboard in real-time using AI-powered CCTV, giving onboard and shoreside fleet managers the same visibility into onboard operations and enabling them to identify any potential maintenance or safety risks related to onboard operations, including cargo handling, security, maintenance and more.

ABL’s strategic decision to install FleetVision™ onboard their vessels was driven by their strong commitment to achieving operational efficiency and enhancing safety. By leveraging ShipIn’s advanced FleetVision platform, they have gained real-time visibility into their operations, enabling proactive monitoring, prompt detection of potential risks onboard, and ship to shore collaboration.

Ship managers receive alerts of any operational or safety issues in near real-time, helping to mitigate the risk of incidents onboard. Moreover, it eradicates the need to sift through 10,000 hours of footage to establish why an unexpected event or accident occurred – making the marine risk management and insurance claims process far more cost-effective and less time-consuming.

The FleetVision™ platform’s enhanced situational awareness has not only streamlined operations but also fostered a safer environment for crew. Now, ABL is well-positioned to optimize their performance and ensure the highest standards of safety onboard their vessels.

Commenting on the deal, Edmund Situmorang, Chief Technology Officer at ABL said: “In this digital age, we have the means to protect mariners using AI-powered systems that alert them to any risks arising from operational or maintenance issues onboard, as well as security threats. FleetVision™ will help safeguard our seafarers and provide data-driven insights that we can draw on to continuously assess and develop our onboard safety practices, procedures, and culture.”

Osher Perry, CEO of ShipIn Systems, added: “The maritime industry is often accused of lagging behind when it comes to embracing digital technology. But shipping companies such as ABL clearly recognize the benefits of an AI-powered platform that enhances safety, provides insights into a ship’s operations and maintenance, and gives fleet managers greater visibility of vessels sailing in remote locations. We’re delighted to work with ABL, our first Indonesian client, and to help the company safeguard its seafarers.”
