NYK Receives Data Management Grand Award

Leveraging Big Data to Improve Competitiveness and Ensure Safe Voyages

NYK received the grand award at Data Management 2024 hosted by the Japan Data Management Consortium (JDMC) on March 8. NYK Senior Managing Executive Officer Nobuhiro Kashima attended the ceremony to receive the award.

JDMC established the Data Management Award in 2014 to publicize data management's role and importance and share pioneering know-how.

NYK has been developing and utilizing data lakes* in three areas: (1) Ship operation management, (2) Deepening shipping business, and (3) Group business management.

For these efforts, NYK received the grand award, which is given to companies and institutions that have made noteworthy efforts and achievements and are recognized as exemplars for others to follow.

NYK is also working on sharing data and knowledge with other companies and government agencies. This includes maritime data sharing with the Japan Coast Guard, which will use the data to improve the accuracy of water-current forecasting around Japan, contributing to safe navigation for ships.

The company is also developing its digital human resources by implementing a variety of programs, from developing business leaders who can use digital technology to publishing an in-house magazine online to disseminate basic information.
