How to use AIS data for discounts and rebates
DA-Desk uses AIS data (the automatic identification system that uses transceivers on ships to monitor vessels positions) to track a vessel’s frequency of calls in case a discount or rebate applies.
Then we transcribe and codify all of the rebate rules, for every port in the world. Coupled with the geofencing of all terminal locations within the ports, it means we can produce a real-time electronic statement of facts (SOF). This ensures that both our transactional and processing teams can see where and when the vessel called in the nominated port and for how long.
