Digital routing service
ChartWorld has launched its new My Route Appraisal (MyRA) digital routing service. The MyRA concept is built around the digitization and automation of voyage planning procedures, freeing up the bridge team to concentrate on route approval, execution, and monitoring.
MyRA provides vessels and onshore personnel with an automatically proposed ECDIS-ready voyage plan; this is based on a route network, port databases, bathymetry from ENCs, weather forecasts, and the relevant ship model. Ship-specific safety contours and automatically calculated safety corridors (XTD) are factored into the route calculation and route check. Weather-optimized and/or fuel-optimized route planning can also be included for the fastest or most economic routing.
Voyage-plan data is provided in printable PDF and editable Excel formats, with a pre-checked route in RTZ format, export-ready for any ECDIS. MyRA also delivers ChartWorld’s unique CIO+ overlay with additional safety-related information.
Oliver Schwarz, ChartWorld’s Business Development Director, commented on the changing demands of operations teams. “We have seen increasing demand, from crew and onshore staff, to reduce the volume and complexity of the digital workload.”
“MyRA allows for combined onboard and shore-based voyage planning and route checking to reduce human error in the voyage planning process. There is a double check from the outset, and options to tailor a route depending on the immediate need.”
