Port data to be included in Voyager Worldwide application

Voyager Worldwide has announced a new port information module for its Voyager FLEET INSIGHT service, to support improved port call co-ordination by carriers, shippers and ports and enhance supply chain efficiency by minimising time spent by vessels waiting to berth or awaiting departure slots.

The new service combines IHS Markit’s Ports and Terminals data and other information sources to provide a directory of port facility information, previous port calls, live port occupancy and berth availability, and inbound marine traffic all within a single online service.

Users can select a port in any location and gain access to this data, with live ETAs and terminal details alongside port contacts including Agents, Bunker Suppliers, Stevedores and other service providers. Port State Control inspection histories for all vessels calling at that port, with deficiencies recorded, can also be accessed within the application.

Information is displayed both in a list view and geographically on a map.

“Decisions relating to port calls today often require considerable liaison with the vessel and/or spending time trying to find the information required in high pagination paper port directories. Increasingly our ship management customers need faster access to accurate and reliable information when in the office and on the move,” said Hayley van Leeuwen, Director of Product and Marketing for the Voyager Worldwide Group.

“We are delighted to have been able to work with IHS Markit to offer our customers very efficient online access to the up-to-date information they need about ports worldwide and help make better, faster decisions.”
