Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) has sold LPS-Bulk to Seaway Marine Transport of St. Catharines, Ontario
, for four vessels: M.V. Canadian Enterprise; M.V. Canadian Transport; M.V. Canadian Transfer; M.V. Canadian Olympic.
LPS-Bulk is a state-of-the-art load planning system. The program allows users to simulate loading cargo in any number of configurations, taking into account all relevant cargo properties (including angle of repose and density). 3D modeling of both vessel and cargo ensure the highest accuracy in both stowage plan development and stability and strength analyses. LPS can also take real-time sensor input, and can thus be used to monitor stability after the stowage plan has been finalized.
