Reimagining the bunker process through data

Bunker Planner

An integrated solution for planning, pricing, and procurement across the value chain to help the shipping industry with the energy transition.

The largest operating cost

Bunkering is the largest operating cost for our customers, accounting for roughly 60% of all spend. Bunker efficiencies, optimisation, and reduction have always been a challenge and therefore, a priority for shipping.

The bunker space continues to become even more demanding with challenges such as elevated prices, increasing volatility, regulations for looming decarbonisation targets, and an increasingly complex energy landscape as we drive towards new, clean fuels.

What we offer

Our Bunker Planning service offers full fleet bunker management for operations and optimisation of planning and pricing. Now, one platform informs decision-making for customers’ bunkering needs across the value chain.

By guiding operators and masters to execute clear plans, Bunker Planner ensures an optimal outcome, not only to positively impact companies’ bottom line, but also help make global trade green. ZeroNorth’s Bunker Planner technology is at the forefront of the digital transformation, providing an integrated solution to facilitate every decision involved in the bunker process.

Key features

  • Ranked scenarios: Track vessels and their performance by continuously monitoring position, speed, draft, ROB, and consumption.
  • Real-time bunker pricing: Gain insights on bunker pricing and grades worldwide, as well as port details and costs that are automatically factored in.

How it works

ZeroNorth’s Bunker Planning solution provides suggestions for when, where, what, and how much to bunker, in turn reducing consumption and creating more profits along with optimising decision making across bunkering operations. By showcasing all bunker possibilities and prices along the route and calculating consumption, the solution creates a pathway for operators to easily simulate, calculate, and decide on the best plan based on transparent and informed decisions.
