Interschalt presents stowage planning software

Interschalt has presented StowMan, a new stowage planning software which it expects to be market-ready in the second quarter of 2014.

The software was developed in cooperation with Professor Rune Møller Jensen of the IT University of Copenhagen, who demonstrated its use at a recent user conference in Germany.

StowMan makes it possible to plan stowage by taking into account trim by cargo instead of ballast water, for example, as well as load limits and hazardous goods handling. Interschalt says that it helps avoid unnecessary restowage and allows for shorter port laytimes.

The German developer says that the software can reduce stowage planning to a matter of seconds and save costs, e.g. through reduced laytimes or by decreasing the volume of ballast water needed and replacing it with cargo.

For the final development phase of StowMan, Interschalt says that it will be involving customers and that the first cooperation partners are already signed up.

“Aided by the input of pilot customers, we will ensure that the software is maximally adapted to the needs of future users,” said Interschalt CEO Robert Gärtner.
