Avoid surprises when you estimate consumption for a voyage with our Weather Factor tool.
No more assumptions.
Many commercial shipping departments still use a flat weather factor in their upcoming voyage estimates, typically 10%, regardless of the time of year or the part of the world.
This will almost always not reflect expected conditions but is typically a result of not having a better method of estimation or a way to keep estimates conservative.
Using an accurate estimate for the weather factor instead of a standard value is one of the most effective ways of improving the accuracy of the overall voyage estimate.
You reduce the risk, and make commercial departments better able to make right decisions when selecting cargoes and vessels.
Our Weather Factor is calculated by combining our proprietary route optimization algorithm with historical maritime weather from the last 10 years and our large database of vessel models.
This allows the user to in an instance calculate the weather factor for a given vessel size on a given route with unprecedented accuracy.
Weather factor based on 10 years historical data.
We created a tool, that allows you to look up the weather factor based on 10 years of historical data and work with ship models and weather routing.
All you need is ports and dead weight tonnage and you will immediately see the result.
Integration into voyage management systems.
We can feed the result to your voyage management system (VMS) via API if the VMS is prepared for this.
(*The calculations are currently available for bulk and tank vessels from 5.000 to 100.000 DWT.)
With our advanced weather routing solution, you will always know your vessel’s current performance. In real-time.
Valid Performance makes it effortless to identify and quantify speed loss and excess consumption. It provides you with the required tools to turn data into actionable insights.
