MOL and Bearing using AI to improve shipping efficiencies

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) is expanding its partnership with Silicon Valley-based Bearing to find more ways of using artificial intelligence (AI) to improve shipping efficiencies within the maritime industry.

In a statement issued today (9 February), MOL said that the partnership, which began in 2019, has yielded a range of products including a newly announced AI-powered Smart Routing Engine.

According to MOL, the routing engine automatically analyses multiple potential routes for a given voyage and recommends ‘prudent, efficient routing through use of optimal main engine output and propeller RPM profiles’.
