John and Graham from AtoBviaC popped in to visit us the other day. We like AtoBviaC and have worked with them for many years. They created a computerised version of the BP Shipping Marine Distance Tables. This is a very sophisticated route planning system that accounts for a myriad of details in producing routes suitable for a wide range of vessels. The initial routes are crafted by a group of Master Mariners using our Henry navigation system. These are then managed through their clever ‘distance engine’ which makes them accessible in a variety of ways. John flies a Socata TB20 aircraft which is a lovely single engine four seater and quite the ideal way to make a quick visit across the other side of the country. Luckily for us he allowed us to commandeer the plane for a quick look round which also gave us a chance to ‘buzz’ the office.
