VOYAGER FLEET INSIGHT SAVES EMISSIONS WITH PORT AND TERMINAL DATA

VOYAGER FLEET INSIGHT SAVES EMISSIONS WITH PORT AND TERMINAL DATA

Tuesday, January 26, 2021 

Voyager Worldwide has added a new port information module in its Voyager Fleet Insight service, in response to growing focus on port call co-ordination by carriers, shippers and ports as they seek to improve supply chain efficiency and reduce pollution emissions caused by vessels waiting to berth or awaiting departure slots.

The new service combines IHS Markit’s Ports and Terminals data and other information to provide a directory of port facility information, previous port calls, live port occupancy and berth availability and inbound marine traffic all within a single online service.

Information is displayed both in a list view and geographically on a map. Where appropriate, data can be viewed on a marine map, overlaid on C-MAP charts or in conjunction with official AVCS Online ENCs.

Hayley van Leeuwen, Director of Product and Marketing, Voyager Worldwide Group, said: “Decisions relating to port calls today often require considerable liaison with the vessel and/or spending time trying to find the information required in high pagination paper port directories. Increasingly our ship management customers need faster access to accurate and reliable information when in the office and on the move. We are delighted to have been able to work with IHS Markit to offer our customers very efficient online access to the up-to-date information they need about ports worldwide and help make better, faster decisions.”

“We’re delighted to expand our long relationship with Voyager Worldwide with our Ports & Terminals data helping them meet the ever-increasing demand for digitisation in the maritime industry," said Guy Sear, VP and Global Head of Risk and Compliance, Maritime and Trade, IHS Markit. "With our data available through the Fleet Insight platform we’re pleased that customers will be able to further utilise the most comprehensive port information in the world in an integrated solution.”

The new port module is available to all users of Voyager Worldwide’s Fleet Insight platform. Marine managers, superintendents and other shipping personnel can take a free trial of the service by contacting the company.
