Hong Kong-based Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) has chosen Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, to provide stowage planning software StowMan to its entire fleet.

The fleet of over 100 containerships, ranging from 2,900 to 21,400 TEU, are planned by stowage planners who are based in strategic planning regions.

With the multifunctional stowage operation system of StowMan, vessel planners will be able to optimize the stowage planning results for fleet utilization based on improved visibility and efficiency, Navis explained.

StowMan is capable of utilizing the results of the stability and stress calculations, slot definitions and lashing rules as well as dangerous goods segregation and stowage rules produced by the onboard loading computer MACS3, which parts of the OOCL fleet are equipped with, Navis continued.

In February 2019, with the help of StowMan, ONE has broken the last reported world record for the largest amount of cargo ever stowed, carrying over 19,100 TEU onboard the MOL Tribute. The record load surpasses the record previously announced by Maersk at 19,038 TEU, achieved in August 2018.
