FleetWeather changes name to Accuritas Global Solutions

(HOPEWELL JUNCTION, N.Y.) — FleetWeather Ocean Services has opened its doors under a new name and new brand: Accuritas Global Solutions. Executive Vice President Jess Hurwitz announced the name change reflecting continued focus and growth in providing business intelligence, analytics and consulting services, and expansion from working within the commercial shipping industry to other modes of global transportation. The new name is effective immediately.

“For the past several years, we have expanded the services we provide to the marine industry to meet the needs of our clients,” said Hurwitz. “While we continue to include some of our legacy services in our suite of products, we have been developing products which support our clients in managing information in a concise and productive fashion. This enables them to make better decisions, increase their profits and reduce costs, as well as streamline communications and manage opportunities more intelligently. Essentially, we support their efforts to be more competitive and agile with improved business strategies and simplified challenges.”

FleetWeather has 47 years of experience servicing the global maritime industry, first as a weather routing company and more recently as the innovator and provider of shipping’s first business intelligence solution introduced in 2013. Founded in 1967 by Tore Jakobsen and merged with Jeff Wimmer’s CompuWeather in 1993, FleetWeather has a reputation for unique services and customer service.

“Throughout our history, we have been known for our passion in delivering quality and doing the right thing. We are very proud of our reputation for accuracy, integrity and responsiveness," said Wimmer, chief executive of Accuritas.

While Accuritas has a new name and new look, its commitment to accuracy, integrity, knowledge and security in all that it does for its clients will not change. Current product and service offerings will also remain the same:

• Business intelligence and analytics
• Consulting and project management
• Problem solving and predictive analysis
• Multi-vendor data and software integration
• Technology development
• Customized deliverables
• On-demand analysis
