Product Information
ASC’s On-board and Load Planning software, Autoload® is used at all stages of vessel operations. The program reads data from tank, draft, wind and SCR sensors as well as user-input and then reports on the stability and strength status of the vessel. Autoload is often used in conjunction with ASC-developed load planning modules specific to a vessel type, eg. supply, jack-up, bulk, ro-ro, rig, etc. Ashore, the load planning modules are interfaced with the in-house booking systems and are used to create load plans which are then transmitted to the vessel, thus allowing more optimal loading in shorter time.
