When ocean carriers poured precious capital into operating a fleet of container ships, including newer “megaships,” the stowage planner's role became more than just determining the best placement for each container. It's financial and asset management, resource allocation, and strategic stowage planning all in one. Every delay, inefficiency, and mistake can cost money and lower the overall return on ocean carriers’ investment.

Consider the difficulties and intricacies of stowage planning. Multiply the stowage variables on each vessel by the number of ports in a typical voyage, factor in vessel sharing agreements, complex hazardous segregation rules, and the uncertainties in the container forecast. The result is a model of such complexity that only an expertly designed stowage planning software system can manage.
