Bayplan/stowage plan occupied and empty locations message (BAPLIE) file-viewing and editing website BAPLIE Viewer Online has released new features including pivot table reporting, an advanced query functionality and realistic 3D modelling of vessel data.

A representative for the California-based site said that it is now simpler than ever to summarise BAPLIE data and save reports to automatically create user-preferred documents at a later date.

The refined BAPLIE Viewer Online framework comes with easy navigation and a full feature-set, and the refurbished structure permits further user-customisations across multiple BAPLIE files, the spokesperson said.

Additionally, the website has been redesigned and is now live, along with the site upgrades.

The new and improved features offer users several extra options when using the site.

The new advanced query tool allows users to quickly construct complex enquiries to filter the BAPLIE data by any combination of attribute values, while the new pivot summary feature lets them dynamically create reports, with a spreadsheet pivot table-style tool, and save them for future use across BAPLIE files.

Moreover, the tool's 3D vessel-view functionality has been upgraded to give a more realistic ship-representation.

"We have considered the demands and needs of the industry and built our platform to better equip users with functionality to easily summarise, visualise and edit BAPLIE files," said Ruth Traynor, BAPLIE Viewer Online's director of customer services.

Additional features are being developed for the website for the future, like the capacity to perform discharge, restow and load operations and the ability to import data from Excel.

A BAPLIE is a broadly-used Electronic Data Interchange For Administration, Commerce and Transport (EDIFACT) message in the shipping sector and advises on the exact stowage positions of cargo on a vessel.
