Voyage Planner | Now accepting Route Suggestions

Thank you for participating in the development of the MarineTraffic Voyage Planner and helping make it the most accurate routing tool.  


Start now, plan a route or improve an existing one! 

The MarineTraffic Voyage Planner is a novel tool for sea route distance calculation.

What sets this tool apart is the fact that the displayed routes are based on actual voyage data recorded by MarineTraffic and routes curated by our users (you!) as opposed to algorithmic routing that does not respect maritime traffic restrictions, such as Traffic Separation Schemes (TSS), safe waterways, turning points, zones of special interest etc.

We invite you to suggest improvements for all the Port to Port routes and help us make the world's best route planner. 

Plan your route now!

Once the list of the suggested routes has been displayed on your screen (just below the Voyage Planner Toolbox) you can expand any of them by simply clicking on the name of it. Notice the "Improve this Route" option (the suggestion feature is available to all registered users).

Clicking on this option will enable you to edit the suggested route and let us know of it. While in the Edit Mode, the Waypoint markers will change and will also get more dense enabling you to alter any part of the route you think that could be improved. 

To make any alterations to the suggested route, simply drag the desired point(s). You can always undo your last edit by clicking on the relevant icon that will appear after moving a point.

When you have performed the edits you wish, click on the "Save Route" button. Your suggestions will be evaluated by a MarineTraffic moderator and, if approved, will replace the suggested route.

 

You are ready, so start

 
 

For the time being you can suggest improvements regarding existing Port-to-Port routes only.

Thank you for your valuable contribution to the MarineTraffic community!

    Hi Pia,
    At the bottom of each page there is a "select your language" drop down list.
    You may select "Deutsch".

    Hello James,

    can you please tell us the route that you have requested (mentioning the pair of arrival and departure ports)?

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Very interesting tool.
    Is there any possibility to key UN codes ? (e.g. USNYC) instead of complete port name)

    Next step is the consumption calculation based on average speed...

    Hi

    We need the ability to eter own waypoints, else it has no use.
    I was planning a trip from antwerp to rotterdam via inland waterways and MT gave three waypoints, thats way to little

    Hello Eloise,

    If you drag the middle point, two more points appear. You can customise it as much as you like and suggest it to us. You might want to take a look at this same service and in the MarineTraffic App where you can also Save the Routes on your device and have access to them later on. You can learn more about it here:
