Weathernews Inc. and Dataloy Systems AS forge data integration partnership that aims to strengthen voyage management with highly accurate weather data in support of lower operational costs and reduced emissions.
Weathernews Inc. and Dataloy Systems AS announced today that the two companies have entered into a strategic partnership agreement that will facilitate data collection via API data integrations.

"The integration of Weathernews' weather-enriched data into the Dataloy Voyage Management System (VMS) will enable our customers to more proactively identify weather events and constraints, as well as plan alternative routes based on historical data. As a result of this new integration, customers will benefit from operational efficiencies and fuel savings," said Erik Fritz Loy, CEO of Dataloy Systems. “I am delighted to welcome Weathernews as our technology partner and look forward to working with them to achieve great things."
“We are very excited about this partnership. By integrating our data and services into the Dataloy VMS, we will enable our joint customers to take fast and right decisions in support of lower costs, reduced emissions, and improved safety based on our expertise and vast data bank of historical weather data,” said Henrik Faurschou, Global Product and Market Strategy Leader
