BunkerPlanner helps operators make optimal bunkering decisions and ensure the right amount of fuel at the right time and best price. Based on the trade route of each individual vessel, the price of fuel, how much fuel the vessel uses, and other factors, BunkerPlanner makes recommendations for the optimal quantity, date, ideal ports, and type of fuel to lift at each location.



The BunkerPlanner solution considers a wide range of operational constraints, such as tank capacities, margin requirements, commingling constraints, SECAs, fuel quarantines, and other factors important to compliant, safe and economical vessel operations. Using sophisticated optimization algorithms, the solution evaluates thousands of alternative bunkering plans to help users identify the best fit.



BunkerPlanner can optimize the fuel procurement process, thereby giving operational savings that can reach tens of thousands of dollars per voyage.



With the ability to integrate commercial voyage plans with optimal bunkering plans generated by BunkerPlanner, clients gain greater control over proactive management one of the largest cost component of the voyages: bunkers.



Direct integration between BunkerPlanner and VIP saves time spent on coordinating voyage decisions between Chartering, Operations, and Bunker Procurement; prevents costly errors and misunderstandings; and provides transparency of the impact that bunkering decisions have on ships’ emissions.
