One Maritime Data Standard

100% insight into your supply chain data

The demand for up-to-date and complete information on products and goods is growing, and this is no different in the maritime chain.

One Maritime Data Standard (OMDS) is the new standard for unified recording and electronic exchange of product and trade data for the Dutch maritime sector.

OMDS focuses on reducing the cost of supply chain management and increasing speed and efficiency within the maritime industry.

Main goals of OMDS

  • Increasing efficiency
  • Decreasing costs
  • Complying with legal requirements

Technical information, import and export documentation, and other data regarding parts and goods provide the basis for calculations, transactions and logistics within the chain.

For data exchange, the 2BA platform has been selected. Using this platform, manufacturers, suppliers, shipping companies and shipyards can supply and exchange up-to-date product and trade information.

Savings in the supply chain

Saving money in the supply chain is easier than you would perhaps expect. Implementing a universal data standard allows for the elimination or minimization of unnecessary steps in processing, transport or intermediate storage, thus creating a huge potential for savings.

Extensive collaboration between various partners in the chain is necessary to take advantage of this potential.

Collaboration improves efficiency

Each OMDS partner is responsible for maintaining a high level of data quality. The more companies that join the partnership, the more transparent the data becomes and the greater the savings.

Applying unified data within the chain offers the maritime sector essential advantages. There are both cost savings in the supply chain and improved communication between suppliers and buyers.

Wijngaarden Veiliggoed has been an OMDS partner since 2017 and speaks from experience:

"Our new work process provides data that is more complete and of higher quality, our process costs have decreased and we can support our clients even better in purchasing and logistical processes."
