We Saw The Need For Data-based Future Predictions In The Marine Market

Soshianest Enterprise Miner Inc. was founded in July 2020 in British Columbia, Canada to serve the North American and global markets. Soshianest is a direct outcome of Dr. Eslami’s PhD thesis on forecasting rates for the oil tanker sector, leading to the development of the full Soshianest concept. Maritime predictions were typically qualitative insights or simple historical predictions. We saw the need for accurate, intelligent forecasting for rates, optimized timing for scheduled maintenance and decisions about when to invest in engineering solutions, such as those that increase ship speed. Soshianest fills the gap with data-based future forecasts with artificial intelligence that analyzes more data and produces a minimum 85% accurate forecast insights.
