Open Positions Board

Board Layout

The board has two main areas; unallocated voyages on the left and allocated voyages on the right.

Each element in the board represents either a voyage with cargoes, or a vessel open position.

Vessel Open Position Card

We call the yellow card the vessel open position card. It displays the start of the schedule of each ship that is displayed in the board. You can click on the card to open the vessel open position drawer. For any scenario that is not the MASTER, you can edit the port and date of the vessel open position. This changes where your ship starts in the scenario and reschedules the consecutive voyages.

Voyage Card


Port Call Timeline and Cargos

On the left side of the voyage card all the arrival times are listed. The date and time listed for the ballast port is the voyage start date. On the right side of the timeline, the port names are listed, including the ballast port. The total cargo gross weight on board after the port call is listed under the port name.

Number of Displayed Ports

It is possible to change how many ports are listed at a time by using the settings. The minimum amount of ports that can be displayed is 3, the ballast port, the first load port and the last discharge port of a voyage. The number in the blue circle indicates how many ports are hidden.


In the open positions board you can drag and drop voyages to allocate or unallocate them, move them between vessels and change their order on a vessel.

Click any voyage card to open the voyage drawer and access additional information and actions.


You have a large variety of filters available in the board. Filtering for commitments (left-most column) and allocated voyages (rest of the columns) is separate. Filtering is persisted when navigating between the boards as well as when navigating to different menu items.


Number of Columns

You can select the number of columns to show in the board either by moving the slider or by typing in a number.

Number of Displayed Ports

You can select the number of ports to show in the port call timeline either by moving the slider or by typing in a number. The ballast, first loading and last discharging ports are always visible.

Column Grouping

The column grouping decides which column a card should go into. The default setting is to group by vessel, but you can also select load area or discharge area. The area groupings depends on the selected area report under account preferences.

Row Grouping

The row grouping setting decides how the cards are grouped vertically. By default there is no row grouping. You can also select to group by month or week.
