Vessel position reports and updated Estimated Time of Arrival
Satellite vessel position reports (provided by Pole Star) gives the planner an intuitive picture of fleet status. TurboRouter can calculate the distance and the sailing time from the ship position to the next port in the schedule. This function is also used for calculating updated ETAs. In this way, the planner can reveal deviations from the planned schedule at an early stage and make corrective decisions.
The ship-to-port distance calculation function can also be used to evaluate whether a vessel can arrive the port in time for a particular cargo.
