Voyage Planner

The intelligent solution to plan routes, manage operational events and ensure compliance.

The Challenges

Voyage planning is a complicated process that requires consideration of many factors. In order to determine the best route from berth to berth, mariners must gather and consider several pieces of information which, considered together determine the safety and feasibility of a maritime journey.

Amalgamating this data and determining what information is relevant is a time-consuming process. To make matters more complicated, maritime publications, including charts and regulations are

constantly updated, meaning mariners must ensure they possess and are referencing the most current information.

After disparate maritime data has been gathered on elements like navigation, weather, environmental zones and ports, each variable must be considered in context to other variables and the journey as a whole. Without a solution that combines all of this data onto one display, navigational officers must oscillate back and forth between these different data sources, slowly narrowing down the best route.


Automatic Route Planning

OneOcean’s Voyage Planner quickly plots automatic routes between destinations, both ports and anchorage points. Users simply enter their voyage details as well as their vessel parameters, safety thresholds and information on vessel manoeuvrability and the solution does the rest. An automatic route is generated and displayed on the screen along with a detailed, editable waypoints table.


Information in One Place

All the information required in a comprehensive Passage Plan is presented on one screen. Users can select and deselect layers of information, including ENC data, Weather, Environmental Zones, Navigational Area warnings, Piracy risks, Ports and more. The display also dynamically updates with more information as the user zooms in, providing just the right amount of detail.


Detailed Event Timelines

Voyage Planner allows you to create Event Waypoints that can be used to add safety, compliance and operational events to the waypoints sheet. Examples include fuel changes, crew shifts and reminders to call port authorities. This provides one consolidated view of all events that must take place as the journey progresses to maintain efficiency, safety and compliance.


Route Optimisation

Drawing on information on the route, vessel and forecasted weather of a journey, Voyage Planner can optimise routes for time, cost and fuel. Each of these routes can be compared and further modified to suit your needs.


Dynamic Passage Plans

Once plans are finalised and ready for use, passage plans can be generated, reviewed and approved directly in the system. Each section of the passage plan can then be further edited and regenerated at any time to ensure that the document always reflects the most up to date maritime data and any changes to the plan.

What this enables

Safer Voyage Planning

Establish a voyage planning process that incorporates all aspects of safety so that crews are prepared for all the actions that must be taken to mitigate risk and arrive with the crew, vessel and cargo unharmed.


Ensure that all aspects of compliance are accounted and planned for, with one consolidated waypoints sheet that lists all events in chronological order.

Improved Decision-Making

Visually integrated data provides a big picture view, allowing you to compare scenarios assess the impacts of decisions.

How it does this

Artificial Intelligence

AI ensures that interconnected data sets are linked, and that an update to one variable will cause the rest to adjust accordingly.

An Extensive Database

Voyage Planner’s database of maritime data is constantly updated from sources around the world, ensuring that you are always relying on accurate and current information.

Vessel Configurability

Users enter detailed information about their vessel, its equipment, parameters, cargo capacity and manoeuvrability. All of this information is taken into account by Voyage Planner and any potential routing issues are flagged in the system.
