Optimal speed

Determining the optimal speed of a given vessel on a given route is one of the most important means of reducing fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. 

At Clipper, it is not about “slow steaming”, but about “steaming at the right speed”. We calculate distance, cargo, the route, time schedule and of course, the needs of our customers, to determine the optimal speed at any point during a voyage.

We operate our ships at a speed that ensures every voyage is performed with minimum fuel consumption. Our operations department continuously communicates to captain and crew, providing vital information about what speed is required at a certain time on a given voyage. Our performance group provides our chartering and operations departments with reliable speed consumption tables, and our crew performs regular speed tests to update this data.
