TankTerminals.com has signed an agreement with a software solutions company to integrate its vessel clearence guide software into TankTerminals.com’s database platform.
The agreement with Hobbit Imaging Solutions and its software www.vesselclearance.com results in a combined platform where customers can find all relevant terminal information. Besides general terminal information and storage availability, terminal customers can now automatically complete a vessel clearance request. This partnership will help tank terminals to become the number one platform for terminal information and help terminals and its customers to work more efficiently.
A customer’s decision to discharge a vessel at a terminal, depends on whether the vessel is able to perform the requested manipulation (i.e. load/discharge) at a terminal. Therefore vessels go through a vetting process each time they could be nominated, this is called a vessel clearance request. For traders, the swiftness in receiving vetting feedback impacts the decision to make or leave a deal. By automating the vessel clearance process the clearance results are direct available, efficiency is increased, and mistakes are excluded.
