SHIPPINGInsight Award Entries Deadline Extended

Entries will be accepted until Aug. 1, 2014 for the inaugural SHIPPINGInsight Award.

The annual award will honor a ship operating company and its technology partners for the successful implementation of an innovative technology or initiative that reduced operating costs and improved operating efficiencies. The winner will be selected by an independent panel of judges, and the award will be presented at a gala awards luncheon during the SHIPPINGInsight Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition, Oct. 1, in Stamford, Conn.

“Results are often derived from collaborative efforts of multiple parties working together to achieve the desired goals,” said SHIPPINGInsight co-director, Jim Rhodes. “For that reason, the award will be presented to all the parties who played a major role in the project.”

Judges will evaluate entries based on the following criteria:
•    What results were achieved? Results must be cited as quantifiable metrics.
•    How did the solution use innovative technology to solve the problem?
•    How did the solution advance the state-of-the-art in fleet and ship optimization?

“We recognize that companies may be reluctant to disclose sensitive data publicly,” said Rhodes. “Any information submitted with award entries will be held in strictest confidence by the judges and will not be released without express written permission.”

Award submissions should be in the form of a case study, and projects must have been completed within calendar year 2013 or 2014. Entries may be submitted by either the shipping company or its technology partners. Entry forms may be downloaded at www.shippinginsight.com/awards.

Entering its third year, SHIPPINGInsight 2014 attracts maritime industry executives from around the world with a focus on practical solutions for the challenges facing ship operators. This year’s event is expanded with the addition of a dedicated Marine LNG Symposium, Sept. 30, to precede the Fleet Optimization Conference, Oct. 1-2.
