April 14, 2015 - Transas Marine has teamed up with Shipping Guides Ltd (UK) to incorporate port data within the Transas Navi-Planner 4000. Having detailed information on ports is essential to fully plan a port call, and adding port data became a logical step in development of this market-leading voyage planning software.
The Navi-Planner Port overlay displays port information for viewing on a chart panel or in tabular format. Port data can be ordered and updated directly through Navi-Planner to assist passage planning to all ports on your route.
The port database locates over 9,000 ports, harbours, terminals and marine facilities around the world. Through incorporating the information within the Navi-Planner Transas customers have vital access to over 70 port information categories tailored to assist in the planning of a port call, as well as a variety of port entry requirements.
The in-depth port data provides pre-arrival details, berth and cargo specific port facilities, port security information, contact details for over 24,000 port service providers, as well as general details including local information and shore based facilities.
There are two levels of access to the database, with basic port data available for free and detailed information provided at a fixed annual rate.
All featured data is the result of constant research carried out by Shipping Guides, with worldwide authentication through the key port authorities and agents.
