MACS3 Onboard Loading Computer

Minimizing stress while increasing safety and loading comprehensively is one of the key competitive advantages for ocean carriers, owners, and managers. The Navis MACS3 seamlessly integrates all relevant data about cargo, cargo securing, and vessel behavior during sailing. This allows an all-in-one solution that unlocks the real value of loading operations to make the best and most accurate decisions efficiently. 

MACS3 sets the industry standard for safe and efficient loading operations by meeting the needs of ocean carriers, owners and managers, and the global seaborne trade.

MACS3 SimOps Module

Using alternative fuels as the primary fuel brings some challenges to cargo spaces onboard. Gas dispersion areas and Monitoring and Security zones are linked to bunkering operations and may be subject to class or company-specific monitoring. Both types need to be reflected in the loading computer of the vessel to provide for a risk free loading pattern for the cargo on board of the vessel.

The MACS3 SimOps module integrates these requirements and helps ship owners and operators to adjust the safety of cargo and crew to their emission reduction plans.

 

Integrated Lashing

Lashing plays a profound role in executing safe vessel operations. MACS3 Loading Computer offers an all-in-one solution for lashing calculations approved by all major classification societies. 

Integrated Dangerous Goods and Special Cargo

When it comes to handling dangerous goods, safety is not just part of the job – it is the job. MACS3 Loading Computer offers seamless and up-to-date integration of IMDG and ISBC code amendments.
