Get more value from your secondary connectivity

Many backup services can be poor value for money as they cost you whilst they stand idle, then they cost extra for any backup data used. In contrast, Fleet Xpress can operate as a fully working secondary channel that delivers more value and benefits for captain, crew and operator.

Offering unlimited data, Fleet Xpress services include Fleet Hotspot for onboard wifi, Crew Xpress for crew connectivity, Fleet Secure UTM for cyber-security and Fleet Data for uploading data from vessel sensors. 

Because Fleet Xpress includes its own built-in backup service (via FleetBroadband) there are no extra costs for backup, no limits on data usage and no bill shock.
