Port Callers users are port supervisors or shipping companies, whose job is to ensure that cargo ships can enter ports safely and on time. While at work, the supervisors have access to the online WeatherNews portal. However, the port supervisors need to be up to date on weather conditions, even when theyre not at work, which was seen as a challenge. Thats why WeatherNews teamed up with Empact in the delivery of the app Port Caller. Now the users can take immediate action when unsafe weather conditions are approaching, even when theyre not on site.


Toggle between detailed 48H, 5-day and 7-day forecasts with a swipe, and view forecast weather conditions, visibility, winds at 10M and 50M, and sea / swell conditions.


View weather data by grid or by a graph or set thresholds to easily monitor port conditions and see areas and times where the weather may affect operations.


Set up groups of ports through the My Ports function, or browse ports using World View. You can also browse ports listed by area and toggle between Local Time and UTC for easy reference.


Easily share information by screenshot using the Share button. Check sunrise and sunset times or view tropical cyclone forecasts worldwide for impacts on your maritime business.

Together with WeatherNews, Empact designed and built an intelligent solution that sends weather alerts to the port supervisors mobile device when weather conditions exceed certain liabilities. The app aims to help the supervisors act faster and to be able to predict and avoid a crisis in case of bad weather conditions.

Other features in the app include a personalized port list, a map overview of ports and an up to 7-day view with hourly intervals of weather statistics: warnings of tropical storms, wind and wave levels and potential ice dangers.


"Port Caller allows the supervisors to immediately reach and re-route cargo ships entering and exiting a port."
