Enable Voyage Estimate User Security

Users can only save changes to Estimates they create. If a user attempts to save an Estimate created by another user, the action will be blocked, and they will be advised to make a copy of the active Estimate.

Voyage Estimate Zero Profit on Bunker Error

Any fuel type that is used in the calculation with price zero will trigger a red warning. The profit and daily profit are set to zero to avoid misjudging the calculation.

Voyage Estimate Zero Profit on DWT Error

If the quantity of cargo on board exceeds the calculated max lift quantity for an itinerary line, an Estimate error will be raised indicating where the overloading has occurred, and the profit/daily profit for the Estimate will be set to zero. However, if the Estimate is fixed, it does not show zero P&L, and the Estimated P&L in the Voyage Manager is not affected.

Voyapi Error on Disch Greater Than Load

A nominated discharge quantity greater than the loaded quantity will raise a validation error in the Estimate, Voyage Fixture, and Voyage Manager. Additionally, in the Estimate, this will clear the results of the P&L calculation.

Voyapi Warn If Missing Estimate Port Expense

Displays a validation warning in the Estimate and Voyage Manager if a cargo handling port call exists without estimated port expenses.

Warn If Missing Cargo Bunkers

If vessel is a tanker or gas carrier, displays a warning if applicable cargo bunker consumption types are not enabled in an estimate or voyage.

Additionally, on the Voyage List, voyage lines will be highlighted in yellow if the above condition exists.

Enable Vessel Import from Estimate

If enabled, the ending year digits are automatically included in the voyage ID.

Enable Port Fuel Availability

When enabled, a new Fuel Availability grid is added to the Port form in the Data Center where the Fuel Types and Grades that are available at the port can be captured.
