The company's comprehensive platform connects vessels to shoreside teams and enables real-time visibility into safe operations management for ships and ship operation and management companies. It also supplies accurate and up-to-date information on the local marine environment and helps crews make critical decisions for passage planning while ensuring thorough compliance.
In Japan, more than 1,000 vessels are using the company’s products. In February 2020, it established OneOcean Co., Ltd. in Tokyo for further business expansion into the market. The company aims to accelerate digital transformation in Japan's marine industry.
Upon establishing the company's Japanese base, JETRO's Invest Japan Business Support Center (IBSC) provided consultation on the establishment of the company (registration, visa, tax, and labor), and introduced service providers (certified public accountants, tax accountants, real estate companies, and banks).
IBSCs are located in Japan's major business hubs and provide one-stop support and service to foreign firms seeking to set up or expand business in Japan. The centers, which provide free temporary office space, consultation with expert advisors and access to a wealth of business information, tailor support according to the specific needs and phase of development of each firm.
