Description of the Advisory Service
The Voyage Optimisation Advisory Service team consists of specialists with extensive shipping experience both as master mariners and commercial operators, which provides complete planning, monitoring and analysis of commercial voyages for Customer's fleet. Through our algorithm-based Voyage Optimisation Platform combined with human expertise, the team provide a detailed and ENC compliant voyage plan to the vessel with an optimum route and speed. Such routes are navigable, weather safe and optimum with regards to prevailing market conditions and bunker prices.
During voyages, a 24/7 monitoring of the vessel’s progress on a given route is carried out through algorithms and in respect of weather routing, the weather routing experts will provide advisory via email or phone to assist and support Customer on shore in order for the vessels to operate within weather conditions compliant to safety parameters defined for each individual vessel and cargo onboard.
During normal business hours (CET), the Voyage Optimisation Advisory Service team will communicate appropriate actions and amendments to the master to ensure that the vessel keeps on the most optimal route.
CII/CO2 emissions prediction is directly embedded into the voyage optimisation, which makes the consequences of a choice transparent, helping Customer to set KPIs on CII for voyage management.
The Voyage Optimisation Advisory Service provide users a transparent and detailed dashboard to evaluate optimisation and financial advantage gained by use of the Voyage Optimisation Platform as well as vessel/fleet CO2 emission and environmental performance.
The combination of AI and human expertise provided by the Voyage Optimisation Advisory Service team provides a unique opportunity to Customer's commercial operation teams to concentrate on commercial operations while vessels' voyages are optimised by our experts to ensure that vessel’s navigational & weather safety, fuel performance and environmental efficiencies are achieved along with minimising voyage costs and maximising profits.
