Agency nomination

Now it is possible to involve the agent, of a given service order, to be part of the workflow inside VMS. When an operator nominates an agent, for a given service order, the nomination email is sent to the agent, together with another email with the description on how the agent can login into VMS. Then the agent can work on the given service order and set the status to Final. At this point, the operator can approve or reject the final cost. The agent will have very limited access to the functionalities and data inside VMS.

Distance table

The Dataloy Distance Table is highly acclaimed for its extensiveness and accuracy in calculating sailing routes and distances, with access to over 100 million routes for voyage estimation and comparison. The database currently holds more than 10,000 ports and maritime locations. The sailing routes are carefully placed based on many factors, such as an analysis of aggregated AIS data, actual ship traffic, and evaluation of different routing options.

deterring Demurrage

Mitigating demurrage necessitates a thorough understanding of expected and actual activity periods. Dataloy gives a clear picture of what is happening, enabling schedulers and operators to anticipate delays and minimize undue demurrage. Furthermore, charterers can quickly and precisely assess demurrage and comprehend its numerous causes so they can proactively lower it in the future.

Dataloy delivers a platform ecosystem to save valuable time for all maritime stakeholders eliminating errors and providing real-time access to a single source of truth.

Fleet Management

Fleet Management

Dataloy Fleet Allocation and Scheduling tool gives you a holistic picture of your fleet in all aspects of operations. It provides an overview of all vessels in the fleet, their current status and the status of their cargo. All commitments and scheduled voyages are visible in real-time on the open positions' board. It shows when the vessel will arrive at each port on the voyage, and how much cargo will be on board. The board highlights how you perform against your contractual constraints, thus shaping awareness of both scheduling challenges, potentials and reducing your waiting time and missed laycans.

Fuel Efficiency with Integrated Fleet Deployment and Bunker Management

When it comes to optimising fuel management across any fleet, planning and preparation are critical. While zero-emission fuel infrastructure is not yet in place, you can still optimise your ship routes to save money, optimise vessel use, streamline operations, and help you make the most of every drop of fuel. This will reduce carbon emissions in the planning phase to moderately influence the fuel consumption and our sustainability targets by coordinating ship movements and cargo loading.

Graphic Interface

Graphical Interface
