Anglo-Eastern Ship Management, one of the largest ship management companies in the world, has completed the successful roll-out of Navigator Port to their fleet of 650 vessels.
Navigator Port software is used daily onboard several thousand ships worldwide for management of port papers, assisting seafarers in handling the administrative and regulatory complexity of port clearance and sailing through controlled waters.
“One of the most time-consuming tasks onboard is preparing port papers,” says Captain Pradeep Chawla, Managing Director, QHSE and Training at Anglo-Eastern. Anglo-Eastern Group, founded in Hong Kong in 1974, employs 27,000 staff at sea and over 1,700 people ashore.
“We have brought in Navigator Port to reduce the administrative burden and ensure quality of the reporting. This is especially important on product and chemical tankers where the port of call is usually not known well in advance,” says Captain Chawla.
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 US Coast Guard’s Electronic Notice of Arrival/Departure (eNOAD) and Electronic Pre-Arrival Notification (ePAN) to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. Navigator Port also 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%.
"We’re very pleased about the successful implementation of Navigator Port on 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,” says Kenneth Vareide, CEO of DNV GL – Digital Solutions.
