ghMaritime Tugboat

The ghMaritime Tugboat solution provides relevant tools to support the following business tasks: Dispatch, Billing, Operations, Sales, and Business Development.

Cut operating costs, increase dispatch efficiency and confirm billing

ghMaritime Tugboat is offered as a software-as-a-service or data-as-a-service solution and is based on real-time and historical AIS data analytics. ghMaritime Tugboat can assist in cutting operating costs, analyzing competitor operations, ease and improve billing processes.

As the ghMaritime Tugboat solution is web-based, it enables easy access from anywhere with network connectivity.

Invoicing can be complicated due to a variety of pricing models including pricing by zones, duration of tug assist, times of day etc. With the historical ship track feature, you can go back and check the exact times and places for any of your tug operations. This enables you to efficiently reduce the number of incorrect or inadequate billings.

In order to minimize unnecessary waiting time and fuel consumption, precise ETAs and ETDs are of paramount importance. The ghMaritime Tugboat solution predicts client vessel ETAs and calculates the ETDs for tugboats to help ensure that each tug is at the right place at the right time. The ETAs and ETDs are based on an advanced algorithm developed by GateHouse Maritime.

Every organization strives to improve its operational efficiency – to the benefit of staff, your customers and not least, your bottom line. With the Destination Predictor feature you can identify potential clients and likely tug assist opportunities weeks in advance – providing you a wider time window for optimal crew planning. Furthermore, fuel consumption can be optimized and emissions reduced through the use of advanced speed-over-ground analytics tools.

Business Development
Competitor analysis can be used to evaluate your efforts and service level against your competitors. As an example, you may want statistics on the numbers and types of tugboats used in a large tanker vessel assist operation. Another statistic could also provide you with information on how long your competitors’ tug are spending in specific dock areas. To gain a better understanding of vessel traffic, it may be of interest to see how many cargo vessels are bypassing your port and docking at the next port up the coast.
