The IMO has publicly stated that utilizing weather routing services reduces fuel consumption by up to 3% and even further with larger vessels.
Some would still argue that there is a conflict between being green and at the same time operating a profitable business. However, with the large proven fuel savings seen from weather routing demonstrates that being sustainable will have an economic benefit.
COACH Solutions has created a fully automated weather routing service which gives the most optimal weather routing in less than 3 minutes to both shore side staff and onboard crew. The COACH Voyage Optimization is an innovative, cutting edge weather routing service where multiple key parameters are combined on a user-friendly platform to provide the most optimal and safe route guidance while maximizing the voyage result without compromising safety.

The operator can follow the vessels progress on dedicated dashboards showing adherence to voyage instructions and CP Performance. Extensive Post Voyage Assessment Reports and claims support is included in the COACH weather routing service.
The advised route is optimal because it is computed basis the Operators key knowledge about vessel- and voyage specific business parameters such as TCE (Time Charter Equivalent) and bunker costs, but also takes into account the vessel´s actual and updated speed and consumption profile determined by COACH – thus ensuring best possible route and the most accurate prediction of bunker consumption, speed and ETA.
Therefore, the simple answer to why weather routing is important is that it keeps your vessel safe while maximizing earnings.
