    Bearing exits stealth mode and launches its AI-driven operations optimization platform, which provides a wide range of actionable insights to shipping companies, leading to improved efficiency, safety and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. Bearing’s platform is powered by highly accurate ship performance models built on real-world data, allowing it to predict fuel consumption, speed, and other performance factors much more accurately than existing solutions on the market. (e.g., Bearing’s typical prediction accuracy for fuel consumption is over 98% per voyage, compared to a typical existing accuracy of 80%).
