Operations
User Journey

The operations function is marked by a rapid pace of work and information overload. The voyage operator is charged with executing the contracts created by the chartering function, maintaining constant communication with vessels at sea and voyage related counterparties, managing the complex P&L of multiple voyages at once, and comparing estimate-to-actual performance to maximize voyage profitability.

With standardized voyage reporting capabilities and a dynamic P&L, the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP) empowers operators to centrally manage every last detail with continuity. Let’s take a closer look.

It’s all in a day’s work.

Connect with vessels and counterparties in a standardized way.

When the voyage is underway, the operator’s success is predicated upon maintaining close connectivity with vessels and voyage related counterparties, including charterers, vessel owners, bunker vendors, port agents, and more. Through built-in forms, VIP standardizes daily noon reports, statements of fact, arrivals, departures, port activities, cargo handling, and more. Data validation ensures that no detail is missed, and operators are empowered to centrally approve forms and populate data throughout the entire maritime workflow.

Account for every activity and its P&L impact.

As the voyage progresses, operators are tasked with tracking anticipated and unanticipated events, including bunkering, loads, discharges, and more.

Quantify the variance between estimated and actual performance, and proactively surface the causes of P&L swings that have a significant impact on voyage performance.

  • Centrally record a full range of voyage activities.
  • Maintain a dynamic P&L.
  • Compare estimated and actual P&L performance.
