Open Blue is a pioneer and world leader in open ocean fish farming. They are dedicated to environmentally conscious fish farming and operate from a state-of-the-art hatchery to offshore farms called “SeaStations”. These stationed farms are located 8 miles offshore and are designed to withstand harsh ocean conditions like strong currents, high wind speeds, and high waves.
With FleetMetriks Panama’s application, Open Blue can track their vessels’ location and status 24 hours a day, seven days a week, allowing them to manage their fleet more efficiently.
Savings in operational costs
Why did Open Blue choose FleetMetriks?
Since the implementation of FleetMetriks Panama’s technology, Open Blue has improved its product transportation process. By tracking the vessels in real-time, they have been able to reduce transportation times from the stations to the mainland by 30% thus guaranteeing compliance with local regulations and generating savings in operational costs.
In addition to insights that allow Open Blue to make more informed decisions about their fleet, FleetMetriks’ system allows Open Blue to know the exact speed of each vessel, which makes it easier to take action to speed violations enforced by local regulations.
“FleetMetriks’ telematics system lets you know exactly what is happening with your ships at all times, so you can get ahead of problems before they become catastrophes. Their system, which uses technology to monitor and track all types of assets, including vehicles, ships, and other heavy machinery, helps you keep your fleet on track by providing instant access to real-time information. You’ll never have to wonder where your ships are or what they’re doing—you’ll know exactly what’s going on!“
