An intuitive solution for planning maritime voyages quickly, safely
and efficiently.

The Challenge

Comprehensive, berth-to-berth voyage planning is a complex and
time-consuming task for mariners. Without Sea Passage software, the task is even more difficult.

Before plotting a course, much data must be gathered and considered to determine a route that meets all necessary criteria for safety, compliance and scheduling.

There are several factors that determine the viability of sea routes. These include vessel details such as equipment, routeing systems, laden levels and safety management systems. Factors relevant to the route, such as forecasted weather, NavArea warnings, environmental zones and piracy risks must also be examined. Finally, there are commercial requirements to take into account, which often concern the vessel’s fuel-consumption and speed, as well as scheduling and cargo requirements.

Introducing PassageManager

Passage Manager allows shoreside teams to perform in depth appraisals and plan ECDIS-compliant routes that are as safe, timely and accurate as possible. By simply entering voyage details, including time and port of departure and port of arrival, the solution visually presents the optimal track, complete with a detailed waypoints table. Users can then modify and tweak routes, to understand and visualise how varying circumstances will affect their journey.

All the data, publications and charts needed for comprehensive marine navigation and safety can be viewed and purchased directly through the solution. This ensures that users are always referencing current information and that outfits are constantly up to date.

Faster, Smarter Navigation

PassageManager is comprised of several modules that, together, inform a safe, compliant voyage plan. The synchronisation with outfit management shows the Electronic Navigational Charts (ENCs) that are required for each step of the journey and distinguishes those that are in the current outfit from those that need to be acquired. Charts can then quickly be purchased through the solution.

Consolidated Passage Plan

Using navigational, port, tidal and weather data, PassageManager can create a broad and fully customised passage plan in minutes. The passage plan is designed to meet bridge procedure guides, the navigational requirements set out in SOLAS Chapter V and the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers (STCW) Convention. It can be adjusted to meet the specifications of each vessel and requirements mandated at the fleet level. Once complete, plans can be saved, approved, exported, and recalled for quick usage and modification at any time.


Improved Insight and Safety

PassageManager makes it easier and quicker for crew to collate all required elements for effective voyage planning. Users aboard can access the latest data, including Notices to Mariners, current warnings and alerts, along and around a route to inform the voyage. Safety and compliance thresholds can be set to ensure adherence to company policies, such as UKC levels or weather limits. Visual alerts signify when a route takes a vessel through potentially unsafe areas.

What this enables

Customised Routeing
Passages are tailored to the vessel, its cargo and safety thresholds
Big-Picture View
Visualise the multiple factors that inform routeing decisions on one dynamic interface
Free up crew time spent on creating, updating and adjusting passage plans
Higher Standards of Safety
View safety-impeding factors and enter customised routeing parameters to keep vessels within safety margins
Environmental Responsibility
Clearly identify environmental zones to better plan safe emissions and discharges
Streamlined Passage Planning
Gather data, create & modify routes, and approve plans in one digital workflow

How it does this


Automatically generate routes between locations, ports or anchorages. Built-in route optimisation uses the latest weather forecasts and vessel safety parameters to optimise the route by time, cost and fuel. Adjust or add waypoints, as required, to minimise risk and maximise efficiency.

Integrated Data

Fully integrate ADPs and ENCs to allow granularity during passage planning and live mode. Full waypoint visibility and adaptable to voyage requirements, including highlighting UKC levels and tidal data for a complete picture in one place. Final plans are acceptable for ECDIS.

Customised and Compliant

Create fully customised and compliant digital passage plans in minutes. Multi-level approvals are built in for an effective sign-off process and approved plans are automatically shared with shoreside teams for transparency and ease of operations.
