If I tell google I am going to Kalamata, the map will draw my route. The machine doesn't know my real intentions only knows what I tell it. Therefore, looking at the AIS of VLCC Adrian Darya 1 we know what the crew has told the computer not the real intended destination! #OOTT
It is a common process in the shipping world! When the final destination of a vessel is not fully decided or there is other reasons to throw people off a destination in the general direction is put into the system, while the operators of the tell the crew what to do.
Example! Many tankers come into the Middle East Gulf awaiting orders. While coming it they show their destination as Basrah, pretty much the northest part of the Gulf, because the crew is not aware of the load port. Eventually that may be Ras Tanura and the system gets updated.
