Vast quantities of shipping data are generated by fleets of vessels and contain valuable operational information about the performance of each vessel. The shipping data can be integrated with observational reports from the crew, loading information, timings and global position system (GPS) details. The enriched data can then yield insight into the natural variation in fuel consumption that can provide a basis on which to make decisions about efficiencies, routes and emissions. This paper reports the process of extracting insight from multiple ferry journeys in the North UK and rationalises the systematic variation underlying the random variation in the datasets.
