Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd of Tokyo recently announced the introduction of an upgrade to their MOL-CAPS system for stowage planning for their car carrying vessels. President and CEO for Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd, Junichiro Ikeda devised and introduced the new upgrade.

The MOL-CAPS system works by generating a stowage plan voyage-by-voyage that shows the user the optimum location for stowing specific vehicles. The system determines the location based on several factors that include vehicle type, ports visiting and onboard structure.

Mitsui O.S.K. Lines first introduced the MOL-CAPS system in 1999 and this new upgraded version will fulfil the needs of the next generation of car carriers called the FLEXIE series, delivery of this new series begins this month.

The new FLEXIE series of vessels have a new deck structure that offers a larger adjustment range due to the liftable height of the deck, the new version of the MOL-CAPS system will use this new configuration to optimize stowage resulting in more flexibility compared to the current car carriers in service.

The upgrade to the system includes a high-speed processing planning feature built from insights of car carrier stowage collated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines over the last 50 years. Due to the global link booking system the software can be used throughout the world at every calling port, this allows stowage plans to be tailored for the current conditions ensuring optimal loading at each port.
