Below the add-on module to the Bunker Planner is set out. Such add-on module is purchased and paid in addition to Bunker Planner.

Customer must have a valid subscription to Bunker Planner to use the add-on modules.


The following Product Terms apply to the add-on module IMOS Integration Module which is a part of the Solution Bunker Planner, if the IMOS Integration Module is purchased by Customer.

Description of the add-on module

The IMOS Integration Module enables Customer to integrate data that is maintained within the Veson IMOS Platform ("IMOS Platform") (provided by Veson Nautical LLC ("Veson")) with Bunker Planner. Supplier and Veson will rely on Veslink API to access Customer’s master data, as well as voyages, including voyage itinerary data and voyage activity report data. The Veslik API provides a set of calls to access data from the IMOS Platform database on a per client basis, delivering data for vessels, fuel, and ports. For data that is not provided by the Veslink API, Veson has developed an additional API endpoint that delivers query results to Supplier for voyage itinerary and voyage activity report information. Requests made to any endpoints that are made available are expected to happen as frequently as hourly.

The IMOS Integration Module may be further developed at Supplier's sole discretion.

Technical requirements

Customer is required to have purchased a license for the IMOS Platform prior to its subscription to the IMOS Integration

Module as well as any required API licenses under a separate agreement with Veson.

For clarity, the right to use the IMOS Integration Module under this Agreement will not allow Customer to export data subject to Intellectual Property Rights from the IMOS Platform to Bunker Planner, unless Customer obtains all necessary rights, licenses and permissions from the relevant third-parties holding rights to such data protected by Intellectual Property Rights.
