Our vision

“He who moves not forward goes backward.”
~ Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 Danaos’ goal is to drive innovation forward across the shipping industry for a greener future.

In an ever-changing environment, we focus on operational excellence by investing in technology, which has had a tremendous impact on the way we conduct our business. To operate our fleet at the highest levels, we continuously invest in technology and research and development projects. Much of this work leverages our industry-leading fleet operations and technical monitoring and allows us to maintain our competitive advantage and strengthen our leadership position.

Our approach

To achieve our vision for the future of shipping, we focused on comprehensive training to cultivate a modern and transparent culture both ashore and on board. By integrating disparate systems, we increase our proactiveness, energy awareness, social and environmental responsibility.

We stay ahead of technology shifts by embracing research. This way we can better serve our customers.

How we use technology

Technology and R&D are at the heart of everything we do. We are passionate about investing in state-of-the-art tools and systems and adapting them to our strategic planning and management practices. From the development of advanced, integrated systems for budget control, remote monitoring of vessels’ performance and operational parameters through big data processing, mobile supervision, and troubleshooting, emissions’ control and monitoring, we have always been an early adopter of cutting edge technological solutions.

Technology has allowed us to manage and improve a well-structured network of manning offices. Long term planning has helped us to achieve optimum control of crew quality and boost crew retention rates. This is one of many tangible examples of how business intelligence translates into measurable indicators of operational excellence.

What are the benefits?

Our R&D strategy is designed to benefit our customers to promote innovation across the shipping industry. Among the benefits that our clients enjoy as a result of the adoption of technology and innovation in our strategic planning and management practices, is our ability to deliver stability in operations, exceptional vessels’ performance with optimum efficiency and utilization, high crew retention rates, close control and prompt response and a high environmental and safety commitment.
