  Transparent voyage result management

voyage results

Many managers find that obtaining a voyage result is both onerous and time-consuming. Not only that, but often voyage results are presented as a static set of numbers that cannot be influenced.

Our LIMA solution delivers complete visibility over the voyage result during the execution of the voyage which allows the end result to be actively managed. This is made possible as LIMA calculates potential revenues immediately a booking is confirmed and these are continually updated as the booking profile changes and until the voyage closes.

Operating expenses are calculated as the voyage progresses by identifying port and cargo related expenses based on schedule, port call and cargo details. LIMA achieves all of this by automatically taking data from LINE, VOYCES, Statement of Facts and AIDA.
