World of Ports Video Now Available

24.02.15

We can write a lot about how World of Ports can make the Marine Assurance task easier for you and how it can be of direct benefit to the tanker community, but sometimes it’s easier to show you.

To help really showcase the benefits of World of Ports we’ve prepared a short film that runs through how World of Ports works and what sort of features can be used when screening different elements of a voyage, looking at a hypothetical voyage of a VLCC between Qatar and Japan. After viewing this we think you will have a clearer picture of what World of Ports can do for you, and if you’re already a user, this will hopefully give you a feel for the full range of features available in World of Ports.

The video is available to view here, and also on our dedicated YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/ISSWorldOfPorts.
