Press release

The new Here Charts are now available at www.fleettracker.de

Hamburg, May 2016

It's official: The development of Microsoft Silverlight is adjusted and the Bing Charts based thereon may no longer be used for the display of tracking data. "On many systems, Silverlight is just not installed. By contrast, the Here Charts, which are integrated into Javascript run on all modern browsers," explains Melanie Hanisch, Fleettracker Developer at Herberg Engineering GmbH.

After extensive testing, together with the shipping companies Navo Mare and Hansa Shipping  Fleettracker now uses Here Charts for its tracking. One of the biggest advantages is certainly the compatibility with Apple and Linux. "In addition to all the card functions you already know we offer our customers more useful features," continues Melanie Hanisch. It covers inter alia: The display of Emission Control Areas (ECAs) for the United States, Northern Europe and China. The Fleettracker user sees where exactly the zone starts and where it ends just with a single click. Accordingly, necessary arrangements for entrance can be provided. An automatic e- mail notification informs the shipping company ashore, when the ship sails in a ECA zone and when the ship has left the zone.

In addition, the Fleettracker Here Charts indicates Joint War Committee zones. This allows a better preparation and planning, for example in relation to the insurance or any dangerous work for the crew. Once the ship passed the danger zone, an e- mail notification will be sent automatically. According to Herberg Engineering the display of other areas such as WHO regions or territories is in the process of planning.

The day-night balance function of the Fleettracker Here Charts indicates sun, dusk and night. Thereby information can be provided about at which time the captain can be achieved best. A  glimpse into the day-nigh-balance is also helpful for the planning of further activities such as repair work on deck. "Some shipping companies use the display also representative in their offices or on their homepage - under the motto: We have an eye on our fleet day and night.," tells Melanie Hanisch.

To know distances precisely means to plan better and easier with the Devider tool of Fleettracker Here Charts. The distance meter turns out for many different scenarios to be useful: For example, if a helicopter should deliver spare parts on board, simply measure  which starting position is closest. Or use the tool to assess risk: Is the main engine failed, you can calculate the distances measured when the vessel encounters danger zones.

"The cards build up very quickly, the performance is absolutely convincing and operating self-explanatory," concluded Captain Andrey Shtarkov of Hansa Shipping.  Currently, the Herberg Engineering GmbH is working on another map functions. "Our focus is on security, overview and reducing workload," suggests Melanie Hanisch.

More positions, a better overview: Fleettracker combines messages via telecommunication systems with AIS data.

Hamburg, March 2016

Ship positions stands for control, predictability, safety. Therefore, especially with regard to the value of the vessels and their cargo it is necessary to have more positions. Herberg Engineering GmbH displays the largest possible number of ship positions on digital charts and satellite images in its fleet management service Fleettracker. The company relies on a combination of terrestrial and satellite-based AIS data additional to the messages of plants such as Inmarsat-C and FleetBroadband.

Shipping companies are able to track the movements of their fleets with position, course and speed worldwide in coastal areas and offshore in their password-protected area on www.fleettracker.de

Cruises are better understandable due to the increased number of position reports and proceedings like accounting and evaluations of berthing times are facilitated. In an emergency such as a machine breakdown, the shipping company can react faster and more targeted.

“In combination with the Fleettracker reporting and analysis modules the additional AIS data opens up opportunities to assess the ship performance more accurately,” says Jan Herberg, Managing Director of Herberg Engineering GmbH.
