The SHIPPINGInsight Award is given annually to a shipping company and its technology partners for the successful implementation of an innovative technology or initiative that advances the state of the art in ship and fleet optimization. The award will be presented at a gala luncheon on the opening day of the SHIPPINGInsight Fleet Optimization Conference & Exhibition, Oct. 18, in Stamford, Conn. The winners will receive a binnacled captain’s clock in a polished wooden case with an engraved plaque.
