Vessel scheduling is one of the major processes for planning the arrival and departure of vessels in the terminals using proforma, long term schedule and coastal schedules. The process of creating vessel schedule involves:
Creation of port rotation
Planning the hours of vessel stay in port
Sea streaming time between ports
Planning for buffer time
Deploying vessels to the schedules in the right order and various other activities.
SVMVSS can be created for mainline and feeder service, a detailed schedule of the vessels arrival and departure time helps the operations to plan network connections. Creating routes from the inter-connected mainline vessels, feeder vessels, trains, barges and trucks can help to plan the logistics in detail.
SVM VSS is designed to plan, publish and monitor the vessel schedules on a continuous basis. SVM VSS has powerful features to create coastal schedules from Proforma and Long Term schedule. The major feature is to update automatically the schedules for following port omissions, deletions, insertions, swapping vessels / voyages, vessel Phase-in / Phase-out and ability to calculate / simulate slot cost.
Proforma service creation with port rotations
Updating port distance from in-house distance tables / 3rd party distance API
Long term schedule creation
Maintenance of vessel details for mainline and feeder schedule
Port details, marine distance and time zone master table update
Multiple terminals can be specified in the same port for different operators
Provides flexible voyage number generation for 4 bounds to handle complex butterfly services
Provision for dry dock planning, vessel swapping and vessel phase IN / OUT
Ability to define Vessel idling time for the vessels
Vessel arrival / departure report with automatic update from vessel master reports
Vessel arrival / departure confirmation optionally can be updated through manual, FTP (File Transfer Protocol), EDI, email and mobile application.
Auto email alert to customers, commercials, Agency staff for schedule changes for port omission, port rotation change, terminal change, adding additional calls and reporting for vessel being ahead / behind the proforma schedule
User Authentication: Read / Write access for defined user only to modify the vessel schedules based on service / vessel
Slot cost calculation and simulation to optimize the service cost such as port cost at terminal / sailing, fuel cost and canal transit cost. Options to define low and high sulphur fuel cost separately
Proper management for delivery and re-delivery of chartered vessels
Schedule viewer module helps to view the schedules of arrival and departure dates by date, port, service and between POL – POD wise for mainline / feeder schedules
Schedule integrity / Historical schedule integrity report to view the vessel KPI (Key Performance Index)
Agency performance report for mainline / feeder services to view the performance of port agent vessel reporting
Repeated vessel report to check the availability / usage of vessels against multiple services
Terminal report to view the terminal list for mainline / feeder services.
Transit time report to view the plan / actual transit time for each container based on the region, sector, Trade Control Area (TCA), country, location and service
Receiving noon report and Vessel Performance Report (VPR) from ship via email and FTP
Noon and VPR : Excel macro template available to maintain / upload data into the database
Scenario creation for proforma, long term and coastal to simulate multiple scenarios before doing any changes in live schedules
Receiving Baplie details from partners via email, FTP and manual transmission with ability to convert data such as port code / terminal codes / equipment type automatically used by each terminal / vessel operator
Coastal voyage optimizer to simulate voyage cost by using various scenarios such as port omission, port rotation change, adding additional port, speed, distance, terminal time and pilot-age to view the impact in port cost, fuel cost, load / discharge cost, transshipment cost, restow cost and feeder transshipment cost
PDF / Excel report extraction
Monitoring real-time sailing and updating the schedules accordingly
Alert email for any port omission, port rotation change and vessel delay
Authorization: Only privileged user can create and modify the schedules
Energy Management – Monitor fuel consumption
Option to upload the arrival and departure report via email, FTP and mobile applications
Forecasting: Simulating various scenarios using scenario builders
