InCon Scheduler


InCon Scheduler

The InCon Scheduler is a decision-making support tool that makes manual calculations and assessments unnecessary in fleet planning and scheduling. Taking your entire fleet into account, the Scheduler module calculates all possible options, also multi-level swapping of cargoes within the fleet to achieve your organization’s goals.

The InCon Scheduler continually prepares and implements optimal schedules for your ships that enable your organisation to meet its business goals. This module reviews the multi-layered criteria and constraints of your fleet, factors in changing events and then delivers an optimised schedule.

InCon Scheduler makes decisions based on actual events and data to reduce idle days, increase cargo carried and make the most cost effective use of your fleet at all times.

We at Thorco Shipping believe that the ‘InCon Estimator’ is the most flexible and complete tool for commercial chartering available today by far. Before we decided to go with the InCon Shipping System, we looked at several different solutions available today, but it wasn’t a difficult decision to make. The InCon Shipping System is highly adaptable, also to the other systems we use, and as far as we can see, it’s the only system that is future ready. Actually, because we know it delivers, we’ve also decided to use InCon in our other commercial management companies.
