Technology company ZeroNorth and Sedna, a data-driven communication platform for maritime, have today announced a new partnership, collaborating together with a shared vision to turn email data into actions across the global trade value chain.
he agreement will see both companies work to bring about closer integration between their technologies and solutions, initially focused on unlocking information buried inside the many emails received by shipping professionals every day.
Of the hundreds of emails that a shipping professional receives every day, only a fraction may be directly relevant to them. This can result in missed opportunities and potentially impact day-to-day business performance.
According to the company, Sedna unlocks the hidden value of information buried inside these many emails and adds context to enable smarter working. Meanwhile, ZeroNorth’s platform turns data into actionable insights, interpreting not only vessel data but also information about the reality faced at sea, such as weather and market conditions, to provide voyage, vessel, fuel and bunker optimisations.
The announcement is being made during Nor-Shipping 2023, aligning with this year’s theme dedicated to the value of #PartnerShips and collaboration in pushing the industry forward. As the partnership evolves, ZeroNorth and Sedna aim to explore how they can make user data securely interoperable between the two platforms.
This means that customers of both companies will be able to decisively act not just based on the summary of emails that they receive in the Sedna platform, but also use ZeroNorth’s complex AI-driven algorithms and machine learning capabilities to turn this data into an actionable summary, Sedna noted.
Together, we will work on solutions and integrations that enable the maritime industry to rationalize, understand and act on the immense wealth of data it already handles on a daily basis, all to enable more sustainable and profitable outcomes for our customers.

Over the following months, we’ll together explore how we can best harness AI and, with ZeroNorth’s admirable commitment to create a positive environmental impact, address how we can rise to the challenge of building a greener, digital future for shipping.
