Pirate Attack Avoidance Routing Software Now Available

Press Release
Monday, April 02, 2012

AtoBviaC Plc announces a new anti-piracy routing tool in its popular subscription 'BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables'.

The AtoBviaC tool enables the ship operator to select routes based on the most current intelligence, and accurately calculate the time and fuel implications of the voyage. "In many cases this can work out to be considerably more accurate than the other available options and provides a level of self-determination that is missing from other solutions,” said Captain Trevor Hall, Director of AtoBviaC.

Anti-Piracy Routing from AtoBviaC within the BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables is based upon information on piracy activity obtained on a regular basis from the Joint War Committee bulletins, and from specific routings requested by ship operators. All routes calculated are navigable, taking account of the need to keep suitable distances off shoals, wrecks, coasts and obstructions and also avoid oil field development areas. The routes are reviewed weekly and updates are issued at 2 monthly intervals or more frequently if significant changes need to be made.

The BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables are widely used within the marine industry and contains all ports, offshore terminals and transhipment areas needed by its many users, particularly:  Worldscale; oil tankers; gas carriers (LNG & LPG); the container trade and the bulk shipping of coal and ore.
