DTN SPOS increases route options for shipping industry

Increased network density means more optimized routes and route options

The shipping industry has more options to maximize cost-effective shipping with the latest version of DTN SPOS. 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.

Plotting a course from A to B is not so hard; getting from A to B, while managing costs, like fuel consumption, and maintaining safety is more of a challenge. Overcoming this hurdle is where optimized weather routing comes into play. It 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.

SPOS builds on decades of experience in weather forecasting and severe weather routing. SPOS enables captains to safely navigate the globe with minimal fuel consumption and emissions by calculating and recalculating optimum routes and anticipating oncoming weather and sea conditions.
