Ships transport million tons of liquefied gas (LNG, LEG and LPG) around the globe on a daily basis. These ships operate on the highest technological and safety standards. However, these high standards do (often) not apply to cargo monitoring and cargo calculation systems. The lack of standardisation results in frustration to the crew, human errors and loss of time, result in financial loss for both the shipping companies as their clients.
Cargo calculation standardisation
Different methods are used for liquefied gas cargo calculations. The most common way of calculating is by homemade and uncontrolled Excel sheets. This is where the problem begins. These sheets can contain mistakes due to programming faults, non-awareness of calculation methods and tempering with the data. Further are (mostly) all cargo data and cargo documents created in a non-standardised system and are never reviewed after the voyages. Silly mistakes are unavoidable, resulting in loss of time and high unnecessarily costs. LoadGeni. acknowledges this problem and offers a solution!
