Today's sea transport fleet consists of highly sophisticated and costly ships. The market is steadily becoming more competitive and a successful sea transport business depends on the operational management of these vessels. It is therefore of utmost importance that this management be carried out in the most efficient way. This calls for efficient administration and easy access to adequate and relevant information. As a consequence it is necessary to provide a comprehensive and well organized information and planning system as the basis for sound decision making at all pertinent levels. Fleetman is one system designed for this purpose and is described in this paper. Fleetman and similar systems have been used onboard Scandinavian ships for some time and experience clearly shows that an improved performance and management of ship operation, compared with the traditional way of operating ships of some 10-15 years ago, has been obtained. The paper gives a short description of the Fleetman modular integrated information system and its implementation and demonstrates by field experience results the standard of performance which may be obtained.
