Reveals New Maritime Data Analysis Capabilities at SMM Hamburg to Solve Supply Chain Challenges

Location intelligence company helps solve congestions challenges with maritime analytics software that empowers port authorities, government agencies, and other maritime companies to significantly save time and costs by benefiting from a new analytical innovation called wait-time analysis.

Leuven, Belgium, 23 August, a Leuven-based high-tech company offering an innovative visual analytics SaaS (Software as a Service) platform for big location data, announces today it will exhibit at SMM 2022 in Hamburg, Germany, from 6 – 9 September. SMM 2022 is the leading international maritime trade fair and is expected to attract more than 40.000 visitors from over 100 countries to celebrate its 30th edition.

Solve congestion challenges with wait-time analysis

Wait-time analysis is a new powerful tool that analyzes vessel activity in defined areas and provides a shortcut into insights based on trends and changes over time, as well as specific information about individual ships.

Wait-time analysis enables port authorities to efficiently monitor and analyze anchorage zones or terminals to identify how many vessels are present at any given time and how long they stay there.

By visualizing and analyzing this information over time, port authorities gain deep insights into the level of congestion and how to improve for a more efficient future policy. Other practical benefits include optimizing the port’s invoicing processes by real-time monitoring of how long a ship stays at anchor. is very excited to demonstrate at SMM Hamburg 2022 how this new way of approaching big data offers many opportunities across the entire maritime industry. Other examples include:

  • Coastal and governmental organizations derive intelligence from analyzing wait times and vessel activity in certain areas to determine suspicious, dangerous, or illegal behavior, such as tax evasion.

  • Intelligence companies monitor and analyze fishing activity to learn from fishing patterns, intensity, hotspots, and to detect illegal, unreported, and unregulated fishing.

From the 6th until the 9th of September, visitors and exhibitors at SMM Hamburg can drop by’s booth at B2.EG.110 to have a live presentation how wait-time analysis exactly works and how it complements the all-in-one maritime analytics platform that requires no coding and enables companies to bring their own data.

Port authorities, shipbuilders and operators, system integrators, and other maritime stakeholders will also learn how easily AIS data can be used on its own or in combination with weather data, ocean wave data, and other IoT data to gain insights into route optimization, competitive analysis, emission reduction, and more.

On Wednesday the 7th of September, Dr. Bart Adams, CTO and Co-Founder of, will join the Maritime Start-Up Night at SMM 2022 to talk about how today any maritime company can leverage connected technologies to discover new business intelligence for a more efficient and greener tomorrow.

“We are very excited to demonstrate the advantages of wait-time analysis. Gaining insights into congestion and supply chain issues is of high importance today. This new way of approaching big data and creating more maritime visibility creates interesting new opportunities for the entire maritime industry, and becomes especially powerful in combination with the scalable and highly interactive infrastructure of’s maritime analytics platform.”
