Vestrak boasts an array of exciting vessel tracking features like interactive user interface, advanced vessel search, track movement history, passage plans & distance calculation between points on map, weather forecast etc with attractive visual representation.
VesTrak also integrates seamlessly with VesRIM to give you up to date information on your vessel.
Vessel Position and History
Track the position of an individual vessel, or your entire fleet, at a glance. VesTrak puts detailed vessel information, including speed, course, and position at your fingertips. VesTrak stores the vessel position history so that you can see where your vessels have been. Used in conjunction with VesRIM, all pertinent information about a vessel in your hands when you need it.
A comprehensive list of ports around the world, and their amenities, is available from within VesTrak. Ports are highlighted by country to easily locate one that serves your needs. A single click on the port in question brings up detailed information on a port, like the amenities, and kind of bunkering available. This can be used to aid passage planning, or in emergency situations.
Passage planning is an important component of modern shipping. With increasing concerns about safety and security, maintaining an accurate plan of where your vessels will be sailing allows them to stay compliant with international regulations. Import passage plans (on the web version) and compare them with the actual route that your vessels sails using the built in vessel position history.
Piracy and War Areas
A standard feature in VesTrak is overlay of regions currently marked as high risk for piracy or war. This overlay is very useful when making passage plans for your vessels. A configurable setting notifies you by email when a vessel in your fleet is approaching one of these regions.
Ice regions is a new feature in VesTrak. Similar to the Piracy and War regions, Ice regions notifies you of regions where Ice is most likely to be encountered, allowing you to plan passages while keeping your vessels away from dangerous regions. Custom alerts can be set up to notify you when a vessel is nearing known ice areas.
User Defined Areas
VesTrak allows you to create custom defined regions according to the needs of your company, allowing your superintendents and masters to plan their voyages in accordance with your company’s defined Safety Management System. Set up email notifications to alert you when one of your vessels is approaching any region that you have defined, in the same manner as you might receive an alert for high risk regions like those affected by piracy, war, or ice.
VesTrak allows you to check for current and future weather forecast on map (automatic updated at every 6 hours). The system is able to show four weather parameters – Pressure, Wind, Swell, and Significant Wave Height. Plan and monitor the passages of your fleet to ensure that they are operating within the weather parameters set in your company’s Safety Management System. VesTrak lets you be proactive about changing your fleet’s passage plan according to the weather, rather than reactive.
Sea Route and Distance Calculations
Calculate sea route and distance between any two ports without leaving VesTrak. You can create or modify waypoints and routes, or measure the distance between two selected points on a map. Quickly compare multiple routes when creating passage plans.
The distance can be calculated using both Rhumb Line and Great Circle methods.
Vessel and Port Search
Intuitive searching within VesTrak lets you search for vessels and ports using specific keywords. Use this feature when looking for ports along a vessel’s route that has the services required by the vessel.
