The shipping industry has more options to maximize cost-effective shipping with the latest version of DTN SPOS (Ship Performance Optimization System).
SPOS optimizes shipping routes taking into consideration sea conditions such as wind, swell, wave size, currents and other weather elements.
The on-board platform comes with a route network update that includes increased network density enabling greater ability to create optimized routes through open waters and increased routing options within restricted waters.
In addition, the update includes scrubber attributes that complements the new fuel types in further support of IMO2020. This enables full reporting capabilities available through SPOS.
Optimizing weather routing enables shipping companies to develop the optimal route for every voyage, based on unique key performance indicators. It brings together the weather forecasts, sea conditions, and the ship’s characteristics and cargo to calculate the most efficient and safe route.
