The Boeing subsidiary says that it can now provide ENC coverage for Indonesian waters, which encompass major Asian Pacific trade routes.
The Strait of Malacca, the main channel between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, is noted for its shallow waters, narrow passages and heavy shipping traffic.
“This is an historical agreement for Jeppesen and a significant development for our shipping clientele operating in these important Asia Pacific trade routes,” said Michael Bergmann, Jeppesen’s maritime industry director.
“It is our continuing goal to support the maritime industry with the best possible ENC coverage for major shipping routes worldwide. Strategic partnerships with hydrographic offices — such as this one with DISHIDROS — are instrumental in achieving this goal. We are grateful to the Indonesian Navy Hydrographic Office for its cooperation and partnership in this process.”
