NYK to implement IMOS as its unified software platform

Japanese shipping company NYK, including its NYK Bulk & Projects Carriers division, is to integrate the Veson IMOS Platform (IMOS) into its core systems and begin operating with IMOS as a unified software platform for its shipping business.

IMOS provides tools to manage a range of vessel-related operations, including ship-chartering contracts, ship operations, revenue and expenditure, and fuel management. The platform can be linked to financial accounting systems and existing applications via APIs, and is also equipped with a function to automatically calculate CO2 emissions.

NYK says it will operate IMOS as a unified platform for its shipping business by integrating individual systems that were previously separated based on people in charge of various functions or split based on different department processes.

This system integration and restructuring is a part of a digital transformation initiative that NYK is undertaking to use digital technology and collected data analysis to solve issues faced by its front line staff and to standardise and streamline various operations to improve competitiveness.

By combining vessel and operation databases through IMOS, NYK believes that it will be able to acquire new insights into its operations and provide added value to customers, including the provision of accurate supply chain information and a reduction of GHG emissions.
