Global Navigation Solutions (“GNS”), the maritime services group, announces that with immediate effect the latest version of its highly regarded Voyager Planning Station will incorporate the industry-leading BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables.
The BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables are provided by AtoBviaC Limited and are widely regarded in the industry as the most accurate and highest quality distance tables available to mariners. Routes are calculated by Master Mariners and provide accurate, reliable calculations which fully allow for issues such as traffic separation schemes and navigational restrictions. In addition to the quality of the data, these tables also help deliver value for money as they assist owners in estimating the true costs of a planned voyage.
Mike Bailey, Head of Product Development at GNS commented: “These tables are without doubt the best in the industry and we are delighted to be working with AtoBviaC as a quality partner in further developing Voyager Planning station as the leader in its field.
“We look forward to announcing further enhancements to Voyager Planning Station during 2014.”
