MACS3 Container Vessels

Whether building a feeder vessel or an ocean giant of more than 20,000 TEU, whether equipping a newbuilding or retrofitting an existing vessel: MACS3 for container vessels performs all required calculations and beyond for the loading and transport of containerized cargo. About 65 percent of the global existing container ship fleet trust in the reliable loading computer made in Flensburg, Germany.

MACS3 offers a rich variety of features that range from reading Baplie files (versions 1.x-3.1) to carrying out various condition checks for the lashing, visibility line, stability stress and dangerous goods including proposals for optimization. These features also include two- and three-dimensional graphic visualizations as well as report functions for all calculations and lists.

The Navis loading computer is approved by the world’s leading classification societies. Furthermore, ship crews and planners can both rely on MACS3’s adherence to current IMO regulations, regular updates on dangerous goods, ship-specific lashing rules and early implementation of new rules.

Combining MACS3 for container vessels with the office-based stowage planning software StowMan ensures seamless, time-saving integration of all necessary cargo and vessel information during the planning process.
