Every day, decision-makers across the maritime ecosystem want to do what they do best: protect their interests and optimize their performance. Windward’s data, maritime expertise, and Artificial Intelligence deliver the insights they need, wherever and whenever they need them.

We capture, clean and analyze data from multiple sources and then apply artificial intelligence to see how vessels are being operated. This allows you to understand patterns of activity in context and work out what they mean for your organization, so that you can take smarter, swifter decisions.

Understanding the relationship between your organization and what happens at sea is becoming more critical and more complicated. We are committed to ushering in a new era of maritime insights – backed by deep domain expertise, data, and artificial intelligence – to help you navigate those complexities. That’s the Windward way.
