Port management from Transas

Transas Marine has launched its Port Management Information Systems (PMIS) product for real-time port management.

Transas PMIS comprises a set of web-enabled applications to automate vessel and cargo operations and related business processes, including vessel calls management, chartering, allocation of cargo handling equipment, invoicing and management/statistical reporting.

In addition, the PMIS is integrated with VTMS software to provide functionality for managing and monitoring vessel movements within a port. Coupled with VTS, the PMIS can receive real-time information about each vessel arriving in port and monitor its location in operational areas.

Integration of PMIS with 3D VTS functionality allows the user to visualise the navigational situation in a port and to provide the VTS operator with 3D views.

Transas says that the PMIS should help in the move towards paperless administration by improving communication between port users through electronic data exchange and optimisation of logistical processes.

A statistical module is also included with the product to provide port authorities and interested parties with KPI data, which can be used to assess overall port performance.

PMIS can be customised to the specific needs of the port, and is built on an open architecture to support interfaces to external databases and additional software such as financial or accounting packages.

  • Anglo-Eastern extends DNV GL’s Navigator Port technology to fleet

    Ship manager Anglo-Eastern has completed the successful roll-out of DNV GL’s Navigator Port to its fleet of more than 600 vessels. 

    Navigator Port software is used onboard several thousand ships for management of port documentation, assisting seafarers in navigating the administrative and regulatory complexity of port clearance and passage through controlled waters.

    “One of the most time-consuming tasks onboard is preparing port documentation,” said Captain Pradeep Chawla, managing director, QHSE and training at Anglo-Eastern. “We have brought in Navigator Port to reduce the administrative burden and ensure quality of the reporting. This is especially important on ships where the port of call is not known well in advance.”

    “The addition of Navigator Port to our ships is part of our overall digital transformation effort across our fleet,” stated Capt. Bjorn Hojgaard, chief executive officer of Anglo-Eastern. “We are evolving our shipboard technologies for the future with smart solutions, and DNV GL’s offering complements our vision for a digitally enhanced fleet.”

    Navigator Port facilitates compliance with requirements from charterers and port authorities. Approximately 1,400 port clearance forms are automatically filled in with ship data, so the required paperwork can be prepared in a few minutes. The system reports directly to maritime authorities, such as the Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (eNOAD) to the United States Coast Guard, and the Electronic Pre-Arrival Notification (ePAN) to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

    In addition, Navigator Port includes a database of information about all the world’s ports and terminals based on publications and data from IHS Markit Ports & Terminals Guide, ADMIRALTY List of Radio Signals (Volume 6) and other sources. In all, paperwork can be reduced by up to 90 per cent.

    “We’re very pleased about the successful implementation of Navigator Port across the Anglo-Eastern fleet. Navigator Port makes it easier for the crew to report accurately and efficiently, which ultimately means that they can focus on their primary responsibility: safe and sound navigation,”  said Kenneth Vareide, CEO of DNV GL – Digital Solutions.
