Anti-Piracy tool from AtoBviaC

AtoBviaC Plc reports that it has introduced a new Anti-Piracy Routeing Tool as part of the BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables.

The Anti-Piracy Routeing system is based upon information on piracy activity obtained on a regular basis from Joint War Committee bulletins, and from specific routeings 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 two-monthly intervals, or more frequently if significant changes need to be made.

"The Anti-Piracy Control allows ship operators to make informed decisions on voyages which may need to avoid piracy areas," says Captain Trevor Hall, director of AtoBviaC.

"With the amount of uncertainty in the industry and the depressed freight rates currently being experienced, the implication of avoiding piracy has to be carefully measured."

"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."
