Stage 2

Big Data and Predictive Analytics for efficient shipping operations

Category: Maritime Operations

Context and Overview:

Maritime Industry collects a lot of data – for example, crew log, equipment log, logs of internal and external conditions of the ships, forms filled out at ports, canals, waterways, additional records by various  agents. Given the variety and volume of data generated, Big Data in maritime can be categorized under these utilities – Managing vessels, cargo & ports, route & fleets. 

MIV 2030 also mentions enhancing the operational efficiency in several areas such as Safe operation, Schedule management,  Fleet planning, Fleet allocation, Maintenance, etc. 

How is this bulk of data collected being used across the maritime sector to develop tools to enhance maritime operations? 

Post COVID what type of predictive tools can assist in the digital transformation of the maritime sector? What options exist today? How are they lacking and what is the scope of research (if any)? 


How was the problem statement formulated?

The IMRC 2022 problem statements are the result of Stage I – Confluence of Ideas conducted from August 2021 to October 2021. The Confluence of ideas involved the following activities: 

  • Industry survey conducted by the IMRC team which received participation from industry and academia across maritime sector.
  • Review of the Outcomes of IMRC 2020 which were focus areas and burning issues in various industry sectors 
  • Study and review of the Maritime India Vision 2030 document by the Government of India. 

The result was: 7 SOLID TOPICAL PROBLEM STATEMENTS formulated by the IMRC committee which require our attention on a priority basis, target SDGs, and are from various areas across the maritime sector.
