Billing

Invoicing can be complicated due to a variety of pricing models including pricing by zones, duration of tug assist, times of day etc. With the historical ship track feature, you can go back and check the exact times and places for any of your tug operations. This enables you to efficiently reduce the number of incorrect or inadequate billings.

Dispatch

In order to minimize unnecessary waiting time and fuel consumption, precise ETAs and ETDs are of paramount importance. The Maritime Tugboat solution predicts client vessel ETAs and calculates the ETDs for tugboats to help ensure that each tug is at the right place at the right time. The ETAs and ETDs are based on an advanced algorithm developed by GateHouse Maritime.

With the Destination Predictor feature you can identify potential clients and likely tug assist opportunities weeks in advance – providing you a wider time window for optimal crew planning. Furthermore, fuel consumption can be optimized, and emissions reduced using advanced speed-over-ground analytics tools.

Business Development

Competitor analysis can be used to evaluate your efforts and service level against your competitors. As an example, you may want statistics on the numbers and types of tugboats used in a large tanker vessel assist operation. Another statistic could also provide you with information on how long your competitors’ tug are spending in specific dock areas. To gain a better understanding of vessel traffic, it may be of interest to see how many cargo vessels are bypassing your port and docking at the next port up the coast.
