Vesselindex® has been developed in order to provide the industry with a common online tool to assists owners, charterers, operators, investors etc. determine the daily income potential of any given dry bulk vessel.

Each of these four characteristics have been assigned a weight. The weights applied can be altered to fit the customer’s needs. Users can also apply value to specific trading features such as ice class, log fittings, flexible cargo/trading terms etc.

The userfriendly Vesselindex® interface includes many useful features that saves time in the day to day work. Whether it is the list functionality where multiple vessels can be saved or it is the forward module which allows the user to enter desired fuel prices and market levels. 

As a unique feature Vesselindex® also offers instant due diligence guidance in relation to vessels' speed & consumption.
