More than just connectivity

From containers to tankers; gas carriers to bulkers, Inmarsat has been keeping vessels safe, running efficiently and crews connected for over 40 years. However, the merchant shipping market is changing rapidly with the acceleration of digitalisation, new environmental regulations, the increasing threat of cyberattacks, and a greater focus on crew welfare and wellbeing. You need a satellite communications partner that will keep innovating and delivering products that you can trust to meet the changing landscape.

Enhancing life onboard

A functioning ship is nowhere without the selfless commitment of a talented and well-trained crew. Spending months on the open water needn’t be a personal hardship. Attract and retain the best individuals on the market by keeping them connected to the things that matter most. Keep them in touch with family and friends, enable them to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries, allow them to watch the latest movies, TV, and sport, and access professional training videos and medical professionals when in need. Boost your crew’s morale and open up their world at sea with high-speed internet access with flexible and easy-to-manage plans to keep your crew happy and productive, without impacting your business-critical communication.
