The sea route calculator will give you the shortest route from port to port, or from vessel to port. You can also add waypoints by dragging the route (the same as you do in Google maps), and the route will quickly be re-calculated.
Some might remember when Erik Loy Sr. launched the digital Dataloy distance table and moved the industry away from the BP distance table book in the 90's. Today you will find many digital sea routecalculators, so why use the Maritime Optima sea route calculator?
We have put pride in developing a reliable sea route calculator since this influence the voyage costs and environmental footprints. Therefore we have used several technologies to estimate efficient "roads" at sea, thus this is not a navigational tool for professional.
Use the sea route calculator from your laptop or mobile device and find time and sea distance from any vessel's real-time position to any port. If you need more details, you can add weather, ice, piracy or ECA zones. If you want to add waypoints or adjust the route, you can drag the line (just as you do in Google Maps) and the sea route will re-calculate in seconds.
If you want to calculate the sea distance from any of the vessel’s position to any port to find the deviation time, just click on the vessel and choose the sea route calculator on the vessel card. Drag the line to find the route you prefer (just as you do inGoogle maps).The sea route calculator is excellent for cases such as: a vessel is en route to Tubarao, and your broker asks if your vessel can go to Ponta da Madeira instead and when she will be there.
Thus we have used several technologies to estimate efficient "roads at sea", thus this is not a navigational tool for professionals.
You can add the layers of information you prefer like weather, ECA / SECA zones, piracy etc or switch between default maps and satellite mode. Here are some of the layers your can combine with the Sea Route Calculator:
If your vessel is drifting for order (in image below: off WA), click on the vessel and add the possible load ports you consider (in image below: Salvador and Bonny), add weather (in image below: wind) and quickly find the ETA for your vessel in the different loading ports (Salvador and Richards Bay). While you are using the sea route calculator, we will continue improving it with more advanced features and layers of information.
We have a special team on sea route calculation and optimising and you will find the Sea Route Calculator in the voyage calculations, sa part of our shipping market intelligence / analytics in combination with machine learning, scheduling and risk management etc.
We will continue developing the sea route calculator by implementing more advanced techniques and technologies. If you want to embed the sea route calculator in your software, send us an e-mail so we can discuss.
