The way to make a sea route from a port is pretty much the same way as you do when you make it from a vessel's position. The only real difference is that instead of creating a route from a vessel to a port you are only creating a route between ports with the information of your own "made-up" vessel.

How to Create a Sea Route from a Port

Step 1

1) Go to "Sea route calculator"

2) Click on the box that says "From a Port"

3) Search for the port you want to create a route with and click on it

Note that you can add filters to your search by clicking the icon in the upper right corner as we have explained in one of our previous guides.

Step 2

1) Click "Add Port" button to add the destination port

2) Search for the port

3) Once your desired port is shown in the results, select it by clicking on it

In ShipAtlas, it is possible to add more than one port. To do this click on "Add Port" again and repeat the process again.

  • The port listed at the top of your list is the first port on your route.

  • To change the order of the port, hold the two-line icon on the right side of the vessels' names and drag it downward or upward the list.

  • To remove a port from the route, click on the "X".

Step 3

Under the list, you will see information about your vessel's speed and consumption.

In addition to your ports, your route is based on this information.

1) To change the information, click on "Edit Speed and Consumption".

2) Click on the section you want to edit and write in a new number.

3) Click on "Save" button once you are happy with changes

Step 4

All the details are done and you can now view your route in the ShipAtlas map by:

1) Click on "Show Route" button at the bottom of the screen.

2) Zoom in on the route to make it clearer

3) Swipe up the information card at the bottom of the screen to get more information about the route.
