Marcura can manage a high volume of port calls – and this was the main factor to come over to Marcura.

Improve fixture profitability – predict and manage port time

Time is money and more than 40% of voyage time is spent in port. We solve the last piece of the voyage optimisation puzzle by helping you predict and manage time and cost in port.

PortLog delivers a unique suite of tools to accurately predict the financial impact of terminal time and conditions, powered by millions of digitalised Statements of Facts and AIS data.

Simulate port costs, lost time, weather impact and risk/reward opportunities related to your fixture terms and counterparties.

PortLog and Veson’s partnership for dry bulk

Veson VIP + PortLog = 🚢📈👍. We are excited to announce that PortLog’s time-in-port and cost data is now available in VIP.

The integration between PortLog and VIP for dry bulk customers brings PortLog’s exclusive data straight into the heart of the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP), available in the notification pane of the voyage estimator.

Operators, charterers and ship owners can now more accurately estimate the PnL impact of their commercial port calls, in order to better manage risk and realise operational, cost, and environmental efficiencies.

PortLog draws on extensive transactional data with over 20 million harmonised time events extracted from SOFs and multiple layers of proprietary Master Data.

This enables chartering and operations teams to:

💵 Estimate the total cost of a port call
💸 Estimate the financial risks related to total turnaround time, unplanned downtime, weather impact and berth level restrictions
🏗️ Predict the relevant calling terminal within a port with more accuracy than ever before
🌧️ Assess the risks and opportunities related to demurrage and despatch impact at the pre-fixture stage
