exactEarth Ltd., a provider of global maritime vessel data, has announced a new agreement with Global Spatial Technology Solutions Inc. ("GSTS") a provider of Intelligent Maritime Solutions for the provision of shipping data .
Under this agreement exactEarth will provide its global shipping data feed, exactAIS® to GSTS to aid in the creation of a maritime vessel management capability that will enhance the overall marine logistics efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of vessels chartered by Resolute Forest Products to ship their goods. This capability will be achieved by the analysis of vessel movement from port to port through the use of space based vessel tracking data provided by exactEarth. "The vessel information data provided by exactEarth enables us to provide intelligent solutions for vessels at any point on the globe, including the Arctic regions", states Richard Kolacz, President and Co-Founder of GSTS. Funding from the Government of Canada through the Fed Dev Enterprise program has supported the development of this capability through an award to GSTS.
"We are delighted to be involved in this important project" said Peter Mabson, President of exactEarth. "We are beginning to see more and more examples of where the global nature of our unique data products can be applied, and it is particularly pleasing to be able to support this vital work aimed at developing sustainable solutions and reducing environmental impact".
