do you collect the position information? There are two different methods we can use
to collect position information. We can use track the GPS stream
from the vessel's Inmarsat terminal (automatic tracking), or we
can get updates from the vessel's noon position message (email
tracking). Both methods have advantages and disadvantages.
Automatic tracking using a GPS stream is the
most accurate method, allowing you to view your vessels' positions
in nearly real time. Email tracking does not require any setup,
and more information can be gathered (BOB, ETA's, etc) For the
best "picture" of what your fleet is doing, we recommend
using both automatic tracking and email tracking.
much do you charge for Fleetrack?
Please contact us for an immediate
do you compute bunker consumption? Our database takes
the top value for bunkers onboard for a given day and subtracts
this from the top bunker value for the previous day. This can
create small errors if the time of day that bunkers were reported
are not consistent each day. However, this error will be made
up the next day, so the analysis is accurate over time. On days
when bunkers are taken on, the column will report N/A in the field.
other companies view information about our ships?
No. Only you can view information about your ships. Our security
system will only allow authorized users to view your data. The

your company's website. This could be a portion of the data, or all
of the data. Email us for information on linking your site to Fleetrack.
you create a complete website for our company? Yes,
we can do any type of web design you like. We recommend making
Fleetrack a central feature of your site, but we can also create
