Danaos Financial Applications
The Danaos Financials suite is the de facto standard in maritime accounting and financial performance follow-up. The Danaos Financials package was one of the very first applications introduced in the maritime industry since the late 80s and since then it is very widely used by hundreds of Danaos customers world-wide.

Danaos Bunkerring Applications
Controlling fuel costs are one of the single most important contributors to your bottom line. Bunker procurement decisions today have become increasingly complicated for bunker buyers and managers forcing solutions that are non –intuitive, complex and multidimensional. Bunkers and purchasing costs have increased from 5% of revenue to 50-60%. This significant change is a result of the commodization of bunker fuel, its shrinking percentage in supply from refining and new governmental-driven sulfur constraints.
Optinal Routing and Fuel Efficiency
Danaos launched two novel product lines aiming to streamline the Bunker purchasing activity and to provide Voyage Routing advice in order to optimize fuel consumption during sea passage, taking into account the vessel characteristics, the weather predictions and the market and charter party requirements.
Combining accurate vessel added resistance and sea-keeping data with best of breed weather forecasts SeaRoutes DSS navigates your particular vessel through the oceans optimizing bunker consumption and passage time according to the market conditions. Although system is producing voyage plans, weather forecasts and voyage summaries to be used onboard and ashore, it is totally different than the various weather routing systems in the market since it suggests the best path based on the detailed parameters of each vessel and the prevailing market requirements. No onboard installation is required, the optimization algorithm is executed ashore and the results are sent to the Master as a routing advice.
