Efficiency in Ship Routing
According to the International Maritime Organization (IMO), 90% of the worlds traded goods are carried by sea. Needless to say, routing has a massive inpact on the efficiency of the shipping industry as well as the maritime environment and global climate.
There are a number of factors impacting the efficiency of transportation at sea and one of the key factors is marine weather data. By being well informed about movements of currents, waves and wind, route planners are able to make better routing decisions that reduce the use of fuel which brings significant cost savings as well as reduced carbon emissions.
Storm Glass provides all the marine weather data needed to optimize ship routing globally. Among the most relevant weather parameters for shipping you will find:
API Request Example
Below you’ll find an API request example of how to access the weather parameters most relevant to ship routing. You can either request data for a single coordinate or specify a geographic area using multiple coordinates. If you prefer GRIB files instead of API requests – please read more about GRIBs
Weather for single coordinate
Tides for single coordinate
