UK delivers next-generation voyage optimisation solution for the commercial shipping industry.


T-VOS is a high-performance voyage optimisation solution, capable of solving the challenges of the industry by utilising the very latest advances in A.I.

A decade of world class academic research and industry collaboration between the University of Southampton, the Alan Turing Institute and Theyr ltd brings T-VOS to the market: the first multi-objective genetic-algorithm AI based voyage optimisation solution delivered via API.

The performance of this next-generation solution demonstrates significant savings over current technology - making it a vital tool for a greener chapter across shipping.

Compared with existing optimisation solutions on the market T-VOS displays an additional improvement of:

  • 5% fuel savings and emissions' reduction
  • 7% time savings
  • 8% increase for Time Charter Equivalent

* These results are validated directly by vessel owners and represent average savings over existing solutions.

Simultaneously optimising for best fuel, best time, speed and Time Charter Equivalent (TCE).

T-VOS is ideally suited for Maritime Solution providers that require a highly adaptable event driven architecture and modular optimisation engine.

A truly remarkable achievement of collaboration between industry and academia. We create Voyages and Operations that are safe and efficient, whilst substantially reducing the vessel’s carbon footprint.
Peter Mantel, Chief Commercial Officer – Theyr Ltd

The flexibility of this high-performance tool encourages seamless integration multiple environmental and operational modules that exist within the industry.

T-VOS is integrated with our high-fidelity Met-Ocean Rapid Data Access Service (RDAS) to ensure the increased safety and performance of every voyage. Furthermore, T-VOS fully integrates with navigation safety parameters, including traffic separation schemes, ECA’s and other navigational restraints.

The industry understands the urgency for decarbonisation is at an all-time-high and T-VOS provides a unique platform for collaboration and the evolution of a more sustainable shipping sector.

I’m very pleased that our fundamental research into Evolutionary Computation is now going to help tackle climate change with immediate effect.
Adam Sobey, Associate Professor – Southampton University
