NYK joins Internet of Ships Open Platform consortium

NYK has become a core member of an Internet of Ships Open Platform (IoS-OP) consortium to provide common and individual rules to stakeholders concerning the equitable distribution of IoS data. The consortium was launched by ShipDC, a ship data centre established by Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK), and will help NYK improve its corporate value and lead the maritime industry by better using such data.

NYK considers IoS-OP, an open and common platform framework to share and utilise IoS data across companies, to be a very important infrastructure for the maritime industry to realise additional data-driven innovation.

As a core member of the consortium, NYK aims to lead data utilisation in the maritime industry by addressing environmental challenges such as EEDI regulations and improving safety and economical design through industry innovation.
