Weather Routing, Inc. (WRI) Post Voyage Performance Analysis Reports are used to assist owners
and charterers in evaluating the speed and consumption of the vessel compared to the warranted or instructed
values. WRI analyzes the daily wind, sea, and ocean current conditions during each transit, and calculates
the distance/time steamed and attendant weather/current factors. "Good weather" periods, as defined by the
C/P, are calculated and used as the basis for any time saving or loss.
At the end of each transit, a performance report is sent to you by e-mail, typically within 24 hours of arrival.
The report itemizes both speed and consumption gain/loss as compared to the C/P clause basis methodology provided in
London Arbitrations. WRI's vessel performance reports are clear and concise, and serve to protect your company's
financial interests. Performance Reports are available at any time on our Dolphin website.
Performance Analysis Reports
Provided within 24 hours of receiving arrival report.
Basis London Arbitrations.
"Good Weather" analysis provided.
"All Weather" analysis provided for comparison.
Bunker Consumption Analysis.
Protect your financial interests, saving time and money.
Ship Status Reports are emailed to your operations team daily, and provide a preliminary analysis of your vessel performance
to date. These reports are provided in summary and detailed form, and provide an early "heads up" of any potential speed or consumption
issues. SSR's are available at any time on our Dolphin website.
Ship Status Reports include:
Instructed Speed and "good weather" definition.
Projected ETA and remaining distance.
Projected upcoming weather/current factors.
Overall and "good weather" performance speed to date.
For past voyages, WRI can reconstruct the voyage to produce a performance report. Using a log abstract and/
or daily position reports from the voyage, our team of performance analysts can then look back, and using all archived data,
ascertain the daily wind, seas, and currents. Again, "good weather" analysis is supplied, and WRI summarizes with a gain/loss for both
speed and bunkers versus the C/P or instructed speed.
WRI also provides supporting data and voyage commentaries, which assist in directly supporting your case.
WRI can also protect your financial interests by monitoring
bunker consumption of your fleet during any port calls. WRI
calculates the bunkers consumed during the idle/working periods
(excluding any manoeuvring periods) and compares this to the warranted
consumption to evaluate if the vessel is in compliance with the
For vessels which did not follow shortest/recommended route, or for
deviations due to unplanned bunker stops, WRI can provide a route
deviation analysis. WRI reconstructs a "theoretical" voyage
for the direct/recommended transit using the actual performance
speed and weather/currents that would have been experienced. We then
compare the distance/time steamed and bunkers consumed on the actual
transit versus the "theoretical" transit, in order to calculate any
extra distance/time steamed or bunkers consumed.
