The approach of the service is strategic, especially for longer ocean-crossings, where the key to identifying the optimum voyage is often 8-10 days ahead on the route. Evaluating the weather developments and forecast uncertainties, the most economical and safe route can be determined. Part of the evaluation is to ensure that possible changes to the expected weather development does not result in a risk of unsafe conditions or expensive delays.
