Search made easy

Searching with Q88 Position List is built on a simple idea: You do not have to look too far to find what you are looking for. The software simplifies search by letting you tailor various criteria without having to ‘dig’ or drill down to define them.

Dropdown menus allow users to rapidly set search criteria for vessel specifications and AIS positions. You save, share and edit searches to prevent needless repetition in configuring searches.

Emission calculator

CO2/EEOI: In the TCE Calculator view, we now give you the option to add columns that will allow users to see estimates for CO2 and EEOI. This is done on a ship-by-ship basis, based on open positions, estimated consumption, distance traveled and other criteria that go into this calculation. Column options include the full voyage as well as laden passage only.

Deeper data

Construct tonnage supply lists based on your needs; each list will provide a 30 day look-back of the history of that supply. Track tonnage supply trends over time by analyzing data based on geographical criteria and vessel-specific data.

By turning the “Predictive” module on, you can see next commercial open position of the ship. The predictive does not interfere with your saved position, and can also be included in your analytics.
