A new free service to support you during the COVID pandemic

Without a doubt, the Covid-19 virus has created a unique set of operational challenges for our customers. As part of our commitment to help our customers better manage these challenges, we are pleased to announce a brand-new and completely free Voyager FLEET INSIGHT service that provides information about available Covid-19 testing facilities in ports worldwide.

The details of Covid-19 test facilities have been collected by S5 Agency World’s extensive port agency network worldwide. Voyager Worldwide has integrated this data into its Voyager FLEET INSIGHT platform so that it can display geographically on a GIS map (or on CMAP or AVCS ENCs for premium services) and in tabular format alongside vessel information such as position, destination port and ETA.
