SHIPBROKER APPLICATIONS

For shipbrokers Danaos is offering Trigonal’s shipbroking suite that is fully integrated to Danaos’ Info@Gate messaging system offering a comprehensive solution that covers all the needs of a shipbroker company. Trigonal’s suite is made up by the modules described below:

Shipping Database

The Shipping Database is the central part of the solution, where vessel and positions data are stored. The database provides a consolidated view of main vessel particulars, current position, commercial

and trading history, notes, attachments and links to messages. Comprehensive vessel characteristics may be viewed by a single mouse-click, and the database has been future-proofed by the facility to add user-defined vessel characteristics. The database can be configured for data feeds from the client’s preferred data supplier.

Position List Application

The Position List application enables users to create searches to project vessels’ ability to meet defined laycan dates in selected load/delivery areas based on Open Port/Zone, vessel speed and embedded distance data. Department level geographic zones and individual user-level ballast matrices improve the accuracy of ETA projections for individual trading desks. Positions can be quickly updated using update utilities accessible from the messaging system. Position lists can be produced in the user’s own report format and exported straight into the message system’s editor.

Fixture Database

The Fixture Database holding all recorded fixture data enables users to quickly view recent fixtures for particular trades, charterers, vessels etc. The Fixture Database is linked to the Position List application, enabling projection of open positions based on the calculated voyage duration. Likewise, long positions can be projected for vessels on time charter based on the calculated T/C duration. Users can configure the Fixtures Alerts Whiteboard to provide instant notification when new fixtures, matching the users filtering parameters, have been saved by colleagues. Fixtures can be quickly updated using update utilities accessible from the messaging system. Fixture reports can be produced in the user’s own report format and exported straight into the message system’s editor.

Cargo Orders Whiteboard Application

The Cargo Orders Whiteboard allows users to share cargo order data with colleagues. The user-configurable filters minimize information overload, and alert users to cargoes that match their configured requirements. The Cargo Orders Whiteboard is linked to the Fixtures Database enabling users to create a fixture on the basis of cargo order data, thereby minimizing manual data entry. Market reports can be produced in the user’s own report format and exported straight into the message system’s editor.

Sale & Purchase

The SnP application allows users to organize all commercial information relating to a vessel for fast and easy retrieval when market opportunities arise. Valuations, market intelligence and other commercial advice can be quickly recorded and searched on. When entering a vessel for sale the application will search for matching purchase enquiries. Vessel sales can be quickly searched and market reports produced for circulation to principals.

Post Fixture / Operations

Trigonal have developed various solutions to support the post-fixture / operations departments of shipbroking companies. The solutions are workflow-based and key features include management of key voyage data and cargo, commission, freight and hire invoicing, and payment reconciliation.

Information Whiteboard Application

The Information Whiteboard is a robust application for communicating text messages among users within an organization. Messages and message threads are saved in a database from where users can filter messages based on a variety of parameters.
