IMOS - Voyages

Home > Operations > Voyages

The Voyages workspace is the central point for managing a voyage. It is the endpoint from an Estimate or Voyage Fixture and the beginning point of voyage accounting, that is, invoice creation. It can either be created from scratch or contain the data entered by the Chartering user into a Voyage Estimate, Voyage Fixture, Cargo, VC In, TC In contract, and/or TC Out contract.

  • Charterers can use Voyages to view forecasted voyages and review or update contract terms and to compare the actual P&L of completed voyages to their Estimates.

  • Operators can use Voyages to find, record, and adjust all the data for a voyage in one place:

    • View the original contract terms

    • Manage the voyage itinerary

    • Record Cargo Bill of Lading data

    • Record delays

    • Create Laytime Calculations

    • Review/record bunker consumption

    • Create AP/AR invoices

    • Create/execute tasks

    • Create Voyage Instructions

    • Generate Performance Reports

  • Accounting users can use Voyages to view and manage invoices and the voyage P&L.
