Route planning has always been a crutial issue for the shipping industry to manage logistics. Today, route optimization is at stake to decrease fuel consumption, operate safely the vessels and address risk management with due regard to environment.

D-ICE has developed cutting edge multi-objective algorithm to address that issue and today propose two services described below: operational routing and statistical studies for either mecanical, wind or hybrid propulsion ships.

Some references

  • Challenges
  • Innovation
  • Operational support
  • Statistical studies


Monitoring of:

  • Ship trajectory (Heading & Course)
  • Ship speed or engine power

Find the optimal route through external constraints:

  • Sea state
  • Currents
  • Wind
  • Nebulosity
  • Risk areas
  • Vessel Motions
  • User preferences
  • Etc.


A graph based approach based on an intelligent mesh:

  • Flexible
  • Innovative
  • Reliable
  • Performing

Single objective optimization

  • Fast calculation
  • Upon 1 criterion (safety, ETA, fuel consumption, …)
  • Global optimum path

Multi objective optimization

  • Monitoring of ship velocity
  • Different routes depending on criterions priorities (ex : ETA/fuel)

Operational support

24/7 remote routing and metocean assistance

  • Daily tailorable reports
