Linescape turns two,
expands its capabilities
May 18, 2011 10:22 AM
Linescape, a search engine for multiple carrier schedules, now includes key vessel profile information within search results as users browse vessel voyage schedules.
Celebrating the second anniversary of its launch, Linescape allows thousands of daily users to search and view schedule data from more than 120 container shipping lines with more than 8 million voyages searchable all at once, including data on 5,000 vessels sailing through 3,000 ports.
Linescape offers free hosting of sailing schedules from any VOCC (vessel-operating common carrier) and encourages any NVOCC (non-vessel-operating common carrier) to host theirs as “sponsored schedules,” which are specially highlighted to promote their business and services.
“Detailed vessel data is now just a click away, including vessel name, IMO (International Maritime Organization) number, ship type, year built, country of registry, DWT (deadweight tonnage), operator, and TEU (20-foot equivalent unit) capacity”, said co-founder David Tarizzo.
Headquartered in Burlingame CA, Linescape was created in 2008. The company is not affiliated with any carrier, which enables it to act with independence toward all shipping lines, shippers, and forwarders.
