SPOS (Ship Performance Optimisation System) is the world’s leading onboard routing system. SPOS has proven to be an accurate and reliable weather routing system and our high quality weather updates ensure the crew is always aware of the weather ahead. With SPOS the ship’s route can be optimised onboard, taking into account wind, waves, swell, current and other elements.
The ship’s captain and crew holds the most knowledge about the vessel and the cargo and so SPOS is designed to enable the user to adjust the route calculations according to the ship’s characteristics. The captain can therefore chart the optimum route (both in terms of safety and efficiency) for his ship in the prevailing conditions.
Today SPOS is installed on over 2500 vessels and supplied to owners, charterers and ships managers. This essential tool ensures vessels navigate the globe safely and efficiently, reducing fuel consumption and contributing to a clean environment.
