Helikon extends GNS contract

Global Navigation Solutions (GNS) has announced that Helikon Shipping Enterprises, a London-based bulk carrier operator, has expanded its use of the GNS Voyager software system to its entire fleet, to be used for route planning and optimisation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Helikon has already been a customer of GNS for more than a decade, and has extended its contract beyond the standard inventory management, compliance management and chart updating functionality to also include A2BviaC digital distance tables and Meteo Group’s SPOS weather routing technology.

The aim of introducing these new capabilities is to perform better in route planning and to achieve greater fuel efficiencies, the company said.

“By extending our use of VOYAGER to include added value services like A2BviaC and SPOS weather optimisation we are able to optimise operations for weather and other factors more easily and more efficiently,” noted Matthew Wooldridge, Helikon Shipping Enterprises.{/mprestriction}
