Route and distance API

sea distance

Get point to point, port to point and port to port sea routes and sea distances.

Accurate routes and sea distances are a key criteria to improve decision making. We return the shortest route sailed considering traffic separation schemes, SECA/ECA zones, piracy zones, canals and port entries. Detailed information are also returned for transit time, vessel speed and distances.

Our routes match your specifics

Emissions control areas

Choose to avoid or not travel in SECA/ECA zones. Get the shortest route around these zones or distances traveled in zone to better monitor fuel consumption.


Enter your vessel's maximum draft or dimensions to get the safest and shortest passages for your vessel.

Special areas

Choose whether you want to avoid a specific area/zones or a list of areas such as piracy zones, territorial zones and canals.


Get more visibility on your Estimated Time of Arrival, considering vessel maximum service speed, by specifying your departure date and time.

How can we help you?

Voyage performance

Get the most accurate sea distances to better predict arrival times, monitor fuel consumption, estimate Co2 , compute deviation costs.

Track and trace

Take advantage of accurate routes and distances to better plan routes and estimate arrival times

The Routing API behind BunkerPlanner performance

Bunker Metric uses Searoutes to help reduce bunker cost

Their solution Bunker Planner considers a range of factors that impact bunkering decisions, including fuel price forecasts, trade patterns and routes, vessel speed, fuel consumption, time spent in Emission Control Areas (ECAs), as well as costs related to deviations, port calls and barges among others.

Accurate routes and distances are therefore a key criteria for bunker optimization. Reliable information on routes distances help to choose the best bunkering ports depending on the ROB (Remaining on Board), time and costs of the deviation,  distance increasing and extra fuel consumption on the deviation.
