Search for a Port

Short Description

The Dataloy Distance Table (DDT) allows routing point/port searches when building/entering port rotations by:

  • routing point/port name and location on a map
  • a routing point's/port's unique code
  • different spellings/shortening of various routing point/port names
  • local/specialised characters

Routing point/port searches can be performed in two ways, either in the search field or by using a map.
