AXSTanker Version 3 Released

Monday, July 19, 2010

AXSMarine launched Version 3.0 of AXSTanker, its internet-based software. Not only will it have an upgraded interface and include a more user-friendly look, but improvements to the functionality of the system will also serve to enhance database interrogation and data retrieval.  Brokers looking to search the database can do so now based on vessel draft and beam restrictions as opposed to just using Panamax or Suezmax vessel size search strings. There is a new attach file capability on the system as well as an AIS data, sourced from Vesseltracker, map and history access capability. Equally as important, Q88 files can now be uploaded via the AXS Support system (email to support@axsmarine.com) and can be exported in PDF, text or Word formats.

New filter tools have been installed at the new login page (widgets) that will enable users to retrieve data in any pre-defined way such as in tabular, graph or trend format. The plan is to refine this aspect to start offering user defined filter tools which will allow clients to use their own dashboard to search for specific information. 

Users can also search Ice Class and IMO I and II fields and distance table data has been updated. Side bar technology also means enhanced page launching capability.

AXSTanker is a set of up-to-date knowledge databases and interactive tools designed for the specific needs of competitive tanker brokers. Several hundred individual shipbrokers use the AXSTanker suite to indicate the positions of some 8,000 ships, update tonnage, prepare position lists, or consult the tanker register, port database and distance tables and voyage calculators.

The exclusive membership of tanker brokerages votes to approve the admission of any new applicant. The recent and much-lauded additions to AXSTanker are AXSTanker and Gas Calculators which are tools allowing brokers and charterers to stop making all their calculations by hand or Excel. Instead, they can now use AXSTanker’s calculators to perform secure and simple T/C and freight calculations, automatically linking in information from the suite’s vessel, distance, port DA, draft, bunkers, and indices databases.

AXSTanker is a service provided by which is a leading provider of interactive, internet-based decision-making tools and databases for shipping industry professionals. AXSMarine’s online tools are secure, fast and easy to use, and the databases they source are always up to date. Because they are internet-based, they are available from any computer, anywhere; there is nothing to download or install.
