Vessel Selection

For trades, use unified information on vessels and terminals, sophisticated algorithms and lightweight collaboration processes to arrive quickly at eligible charter candidates with the optimal combination of commercial properties and fuel efficiency.

Selecting the optimal vessel to charter and deploy on a trade is a critical task for any chartering team to get right. 

A number of factors will have to be considered during the selection process, such as the physical constraints at each terminal called, the vessel's fuel type and fuel efficiency, the vessel's capacity and loading properties as well as its charter rate and overall commercial fit. 

Furthermore, a number of professionals at the charterer, each with their own expertise knowledge, will have to work together to arrive at the best suited candidate at a turnover speed that prevents the charter team from missing out on the target in the market.

It goes without saying that without effective tools that facilitate efficient discovering and evaluation of vessels in a collaborative environment, the selection process can quickly get out of hand, with opportunities being lost or sub-optimal decisions made.


And that's why we have created the Ankeri Vessel Selection for charter teams to help them get better charter selection results, faster and easier.
