Ship Decision Debuts Broker Module

Monday, March 16, 2009

ShipDecision software is designed to eliminate the need for Brokers to search manually through the thousands of incoming daily emails.  The Vessel Position feature of the system examines each incoming message and automatically extracts the critical vessel information such as the name, ownership and tonnage of the vessel; its region and position; and its open date range.  Through a unique algorithm, the system also “learns’ to adapt to various formats of information, so that it can extract the relevant data regardless of the format in which it is written. The Cargo Order feature of the system makes it easier for brokers to search for cargo orders by lay-can date range; cargo type and quantity; zone and port; and by latest date.

 “Quickly matching the right ship to the right cargo, in the most cost effective manner, is a critical action in the maritime shipping industry,” said Albert Carbone, President of Stelvio Inc., the company that develops ShipDecision.  “The feedback we have had from the Brokering community is that the Broker Module will make a real difference in day-to-day productivity.” ShipDecision is a secure, web-based system that fully integrates all the information and documents needed to manage cargo movement and vessel operations.
