Vessel operating system

Cofano has a cloud application available for the entire strategic, operational and administrative processes of a shipping line.

The application can be used for a time-charter process as well as for shipping lines that plan cargo, transport and the entire fleet. The application provides functionalities that allow you to record customer data and orders. However, this is just the basis of the platform. The application distinguishes itself by reducing administrative processing and improving the planning and management process. Orders can be entered by the customer or customer service (electronically or manually) for both containers and for (break) bulk. Smart planning algorithms can be used to assist employees in planning the ships. For bulk, previous loads can be taken into account, to prevent contamination.

The progress of the journey or order can be managed via a status system and can be viewed by all involved. The control tower automatically monitors the execution of the transport. If the implementation deviates from the schedule, this becomes immediately clear. The current GPS positions (tracking & tracing) are used in combination with the route to be covered on a short and deepsea infrastructure network. After an order has reached a certain status, the billing process can be triggered. For bulk transports, any measurement reports on loading and unloading can be included automatically. In the case of large deviations (adjustable), protest documents can also be generated from the application. The EDI integration with the deep-seaterminals is provided as standard.

The captain can view all details of their current and future journeys via the app. In addition, status changes can be reported during transport via this app and documents and photos can be added (pilot on board, arrived at the terminal, ready for unloading, etc.). This way, everyone involved in a trip is always aware of the latest status and also has access to all relevant documents. Postage or other costs incurred during a trip can be recorded by the captain, after which they are immediately available for a financial department.
