F. Laeisz adopts Kaiko Systems software

Shipping company F. Laeisz will carry out ship inspections with Kaiko Systems in future. The aim is to increase efficiency and reduce costs.

The shipping company based in Hamburg and Rostock has rolled out Kaiko Systems’ software solution for condition monitoring on the 18 ships in its fleet. The two companies have now announced this. The aim is to increase operational efficiency in the fleet, they say. [ds_preview]

Kaiko Systems offers an app-based, intelligent and user-friendly tool for ship inspections. It structures and analyzes the data collected on board by the crew based on AI and provides insights into the fleet’s condition almost in real-time, identifying potential risks and providing a basis for decision-making.

F. Laeisz had previously used a self-developed system to record the condition of its fleet but wanted to modernize its maintenance processes comprehensively. After extensive testing, the company opted for Kaiko Systems, a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution that has already proven itself many times over on the market.

Laeisz hopes for cost savings

“We have high expectations of our new system,” says Harald Schlotfeldt, Technical Director at F. Laeisz. “The time savings, the increased energy efficiency and the cost savings that we can achieve with Kaiko Systems have convinced us.”

By using the software, the shipping company wants to intensify collaboration between the teams on land and onboard, simplify processes and thus reduce administrative costs. This would not have been possible with the two to three ship visits per year that were previously the norm.

Founded in 1824, Reederei F. Laeisz is a diversified shipping group with activities in the areas of shipping, brokerage and insurance. The fleet includes container ships, car carriers and gas tankers.
