Navis simplifies charterer-owner collaboration

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation and provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world´s organizations across the shipping supply chain, has introduced two new Bluetracker modules that offer benefits to ship owners, ship managers and charterers, the company said.

The modules simplify the process of preparing tender descriptions of ships for time-charter agreements based on operational ship data. In addition, they facilitate the seamless tracking of ship performance data that is primarily involved in the voyage-by-voyage spot market in order to foster energy-efficient ship operations.

The Bluetracker Charter Monitor module documents fuel consumption vs. speed and compares the operational performance values with those defined in the charter-party, while also considering weather factors. If deviations occur, an automatic warning function will alert the performance manager or superintendent to initiate corrective action to prevent unnecessarily high fuel consumption and potential speed claims.
