Vessel Auto Plan
Stowage planning (vessel auto plan) is a vital component for the safe efficient operation of ships. The challenge in today’s complex stowage planning is that planning must address different vessel sizes, capacities, and varying cargo mix. In addition, container stowage planning must complete all the tasks efficiently, safely and on time.
SVM VAP (Stowage Planning) helps to lessen some of the complex tasks through automation, freeing up valuable planning time. Built-in algorithms help to iron out human errors such as; container over stows, excessive vessel stresses and less than optimal vessel stability. It makes the process simpler, accurate and easier to manage ensuring no costly delays are incurred, which could impact the operation of ships today.
