Chevron selects C-MAP

Jun 08 2018

Following a competitive tender, Chevron Shipping Co (CSC) chose C-MAP to provide the company’s smart shipping solutions.

CSC will deploy C-MAP’s integrated maritime suite (IMS), an on board platform that employs algorithms and customised ship performance models, to deliver voyage optimisation.


C-MAP’s IMS enables users to optimise routes to get the fastest arrival times, while minimising costs and bunker consumption and maximising safety, the company claimed.


CSC will also gain full visibility of their fleet’s performance via C-MAP’s FleetManager. This web-based solution provides analytics to optimise efficiency and improve operational and strategic decision-making.


C-MAP’s commercial services team will provide shore-based routing and voyage optimisation services, as well as technical support and training. In addition, ADMIRALTY AVCS ENCs and digital publications, C-MAP Pro+ charts, and C-MAP UpdateWizard offer worldwide chart coverage.


“We are delighted that CSC has chosen C-MAP to provide market-leading voyage optimisation, fleet management solutions, and worldwide charts,” said Sean Fernback, C-MAP’s CEO. “We are confident C-MAP offers unmatched insight and analysis, as well as chart coverage, to enable users to improve fleet operational efficiency and effectiveness.”


In addition, C-MAP has launched a new version of C-MAP FleetManager.


Fuelled by Microsoft Power BI, C-MAP FleetManager gives immediate access to fleet data with interactive reports via a personalised dashboard.


Customers can now connect data sources and see a graphical representation of all their ship’s data through interactive dashboards. Analysis reports can be created easily, in real-time, offering increased visibility and transparency into the performance of their fleet.


“Our customers capture more data about their fleet from more sources than ever before,” said Capt Niles Baker, C-MAP’s global sales lead – commercial fleet products. “But what they needed was a way to easily and efficiently access that data and gain real insights in real-time to manage their fleet effectively. So, we built an analytics tool into our C-MAP FleetManager solution to give our customers a simple and structured way to gain the intelligence they need, when they need it.”


A global ship operator who is a long time user of C-Map services said: “The new analytics tool has enabled us to dive deeper than ever in to the performance management of our vessels, giving real-time insights in a simple and structured way.


“This is a fantastic new leap forward for the product. The new analytics tool has saved so much time in running regular reports by presenting the crucial data on my dashboard, and the C-MAP development team has been helpful in tailoring the reports upon request,” he concluded.
