• Who Are We?

    We are mariners, technology experts and statisticians driven by a mission to save lives at sea. High impact, low frequency (HiLo) incidents are always in the news, but they are notoriously difficult to predict. These events are disastrous for crews, vessels and the environment. Our innovative approach identifies the small-scale issues leading up to maritime disasters, giving shipping companies the chance to act before it's too late.

    Working with some of the leading names in the industry, we have developed a series of practical tools, giving ship manager the power to harness big data analytics to prevent maritime catastophes.

  • Our Story

    Our team understands the impact of maritime incidents. Inspired by personal experience and stories of friends and colleagues, a group of seafarers from different companies got together to ask ‘how do we prevent high impact incidents?’. This was the birth of HiLo.

    HiLo discovered that with enough data from enough shipping companies, we can predict these high impact incidents. By identifying the clues which appear as issues escalate, we give shipping companies the chance to act before warning signals turn into catastrophes.

    Pinpoint, our analysis tool, was piloted by 10 leading shipping companies and peer reviewed by Imperial College London and The Alan Turing institute. Pinpoint has been joined by our suite of knowledge sharing services, which are now relied on by over 50 shipping companies around the world.
