Our latest insights

  • From Crisis to Action: Innovations That Drive Supply Chain Resilience
    Disruptions have impacted many industries in recent years. We realise that our access to goods and services is dependent on supply chains that are not resilient enough. In this panel event, you will hear from some of the leaders that are driving the action and creating resilient supply chains through innovation.
  • Case Study: Improving energy efficiency onboard vessels
    Finnish marine and energy technology company, Wärtsilä, was looking for a new way for them, their customers and crew members to work more efficiently together as they are supplying both equipment, technologies and software. It was key to find ways to share data and information and getting the people onboard vessels involved in the ecosystem.
  • Case Study: Reducing human error in maritime accidents
    One of the biggest safety-related challenges in the maritime sector is accidents caused by human error. Upwards three out of four accidents can be traced back to a man-made mistake. Shell wanted to address this, and through our Trade & Transport Impact program, they discovered that maritime and offshore safety technology startup, Scoutbase, was the key.
  • 5 Levers of Corporate Entrepreneurship
    Fostering a culture of innovation in an organisation requires a lot of strategic considerations, tactical planning and the right framework. Here, we highlight five levers that are crucial to create successful internal innovation programs.
  • Case Study: Using Data to Increase Fuel Transparency
    Wilhelmsen, a long-term partner of Rainmaking, faced a challenge in assessing the quality of the fuels used by the many vessels in their operation. Luckily we found the perfect match in Dravam who offers comprehensive monitoring of fluid quality and actionable insights from conventional flow data.
  • Challenges and opportunities for alternative fuels in shipping
    Since the 1960s, heavy fuel oil – derived from processing and distilling crude oil – has been the leading energy carrier for the marine shipping industry because of its low cost, widespread abundance, and developed infrastructure. However, it also accounts for 13% of global sulfur oxide and 15% of global nitrogen oxide emissions (IMO, 2015).
