Tankers International Employs Magenta Multi-Agent

Friday, March 23, 2007
Tankers International (TI), one of the largest operators of modern double hull VLCCs (Very Large Crude Carriers), uses Magenta's leading edge multi-agent software (Ocean) to help identify and schedule the most profitable combination of cargoes for its fleet of more than 40 vessels. The market in which TI operates is extremely volatile with demand and transportation costs fluctuating on a daily basis. Magenta has worked closely with TI's London-based agency, Tankers (UK) Agencies Ltd., to develop and deliver a sophisticated, real-time, ocean logistics tool to help optimize the performance and management of its modern double hull fleet. The Magenta solution allows TI to assess potential cargoes in the marketplace, match these against its vessels’ specifications and calculate voyage profitability. Further, unlike traditional rules-based systems, multi-agent technology responds to real world changes affecting a schedule and re-plans the most advantageous schedule at that point in time. For instance, when a new cargo is available, the system decides on the optimum vessel for the cargo, based on TI’s fleet strategy.
