IHS Markit and eMPX partnership

22 September 2021 Guy Sear

IHS Markit and eMPX, a maritime high-technology company, are proud to announce a collaboration that will deliver customers in the maritime pilot industry direct integration of the IHS Markit/IMO vessel database into the eMPX master pilot exchange application.

Jason Ranston, Business Manager at eMPX said, "IHS Markit provides our eMPX customers with a dramatic enhancement in the way they treat their eMPX vessel database. It gives them up-to-the-minute, comprehensive vessel details which enable them to make better decisions when completing their pilotage planning, and while they are going through the process of information confirmation with the ship's master."

Guy Sear Maritime & Trade Vice President at IHS Markit added, "IHS Markit is thrilled to be working with eMPX to help them and their customers move forward with the ever increasing role that digitisation has in the maritime environment, and look forward to many years of successfully working within the master and pilot community along with eMPX."

IHS Markit has over 300 years history in the Maritime sector and holds a unique position in today's industry as the sole issuing authority of the IMO vessel and company number. This along with over 25,000 supplementary sources allows IHS Markit to remain the market leader in merchant shipping data and analytics. Delivered via an API, the data integration will enable eMPX to further streamline the master pilot exchange process by removing the requirement to manually enter vessel dimensions and other key fields which is time consuming and prone to errors. IHS Markit and eMPX are delighted to confirm that the integration is live within eMPX and available for customers now.
