ShipIntel gives you the possibility to easily calculate a sea route from any vessel anywhere in the map. This is a great feature to have if you want to check if your competitor is going to make the laycan, or if you want to see if your cargo is going to make it in time.

Click on the Sea Route symbol at the bottom of your screen, and choose From a Vessels position. Enter the name of the vessel in the search field at the top of the screen or pick a vessel from the list of your recent searches.

If necessary, you can edit the speed and consumption of the vessel by scrolling down on the next screen and clicking on the Edit Speed and Consumption button. If you are happy with the given information, you click Add Port at the top, and enter the name of the port in the search field.

If you want you can also search the route to multiple ports by clicking on the Add Port button again. When you have added the port(s) to the sea route calculator click Show Route at the bottom of the screen. A view of the map will appear showing you the route from your vessel to your chosen port (Please note that in this illustration, the vessel is too big for the Panama Canal). At the bottom of the screen you will see a card showing you the ETA and the distance to the port, and the estimated consumption on the main and auxiliary engine. If you touch and slide up at the top of your card you will get more information about the route. You can also click the back arrow at the top left of your screen to edit your route. Touch and slide down to see your route in the map again.
