Netpas Distance is a piece of software for those in the ship voyage business: ship agents and managers, cargo holders, charterers, and others. The utility will help them find ports on the map, see the distance between different ports, track vessels, and manage voyages.
The utility includes more than 11000 ports, and a comprehensive table with distances, which includes 60 million entries. Areas with high piracy rates are shown on the map, and the program can suggest alternative, piracy-free routes. The program also enables you to find the ports in a specific country, as well as information on each - such as local time, sunrise and sunset time, weather info, and even a list of public holidays. You may request the distance between ports, as well as the estimated time needed to travel from one to another. When providing the departure time from one port, the utility will provide you with the arrival time at the destination. Nevertheless, this piece of software sets a limit for how many distances you can obtain on a given day, with a maximum of 100. The user interface is quite intuitive and one should find the utility easy enough to use.
Netpas Distance is a good tool for creating the route for a vessel's voyage, calculating distances and the projected arrival time, while also taking into account weather and speed parameters.
