You can save the routes you have created by clicking the Save Route button at the bottom of your left hand menu.
You can now duplicate the route by clicking on the Duplicate button on your card. If you want to compare with the route to another port, just change the destination in the duplicated journey. You now have two cards, that you can alternate on clicking to compare to distance and time to a or several ports. The cards only show the ETA to the first port, and if you have added more than one port to your route, and you want to see the ETA to each port on the journey, you have to click on More Details at the top of your route calculator.
If you have several ports in your route calculation, you can click and drag on the ports to change the order of ports in the calculation.
You can also use the duplicate function again to compare to a third destination.
If you create a route from a port to a port where there are different alternative routes to the port, ShipIntel will choose the shorter route. The alternative route will also be shown in the map as an alternative. If the shortest route is via a canal, as most of them are, you will see a warning in the route calculator that it includes a canal, and give you the option of avoiding the canal. If you want to compare the two routes, duplicate the first card and then choose avoid canal on the duplicated card. Remember that you can see the details of each voyage by clicking More Details at the top of the route calculator.
You also have the possibility to send this route to a recipient outside of your team by clicking the Send Route button in the lower right corner.
Just fill in the mail address in the pop-up card and click send. The recipient have to be logged on to ShipIntel to see the route.
