We are proud to announce that the Danish Maritime Fund will support the development of BunkerPlanner.
Shipping Watch has a new article discussing our bunker procurement optimization tool, BunkerPlanner.
See article in Ship & Bunker for an overview of our barge tracking tool.

Our Products

BunkerPlanner is a bunker procurement optimization tool.

Based on the most recent bunker pricing and availability information, as well as each vessel's consumption pattern and expected route, BunkerPlanner makes a recommendation on the optimal quantity and type of fuel to lift at each location.

We consider a wide range of operational constraints, such as tank capacities, margin requirements, commingling constraints, SECAs, fuel quarantines, and many others. Using sophisticated optimization algorithms, our application crunches through hundreds of alternative bunkering plans, uncovering thousands of dollars in potential savings.

BargeTracker is a business intelligence tool that generates commercial insights for stakeholders in the marine fuels supply chain.

Our product uses AIS data and proprietary algorithms to generate a timeline of activities for each bunker barge operating at a port of interest. Based on the barge's position relative to client vessels and fuel storage terminals, we deduce transfer events and quantities.

Our tool currently tracks barge activity in ARA, Hamburg, St Petersburg, Piraeus, and Genoa.
