Transport and logistics specialist Inlecom Systems has reported the launch of i-Ship, a new software application that the company claims will speed up ship reporting processes with European and International maritime and custom authorities.

i-Ship has been developed as part of the eMAR project, which today also announced the launch of its e-Maritime Strategic Framework (EMSF). The application has been designed to automate reporting obligations in compliance with the EU’s Single Window Directive.

The Directive aims to harmonise the administrative procedures applied to maritime transport by establishing a standard electronic exchange of information and by simplifying reporting formalities for ships arriving and departing from EU ports.

Inlecom says i-Ship will act as a “common gateway to all reporting nodes” and provide a single link to shipping companies for the submission of reports. The process will also align with international standards such as ISO 28005, WCO, EDIFACT and EU specific formats and requirements.

“i-Ship is a unique product both in terms of functionality and technology innovation that alleviates the burden of reporting formalities from shipping companies at a very cost effective way,” says Dr Takis Katsoulakos, director of Inlecom Systems.

The application will also be available via Software as a Service (SaaS), and Inlecom says it is fully customisable.

    As part of the European Union (EU) Recognised Organisation (RO) Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme, EIZO Corporation has been awarded type approval from Lloyd’s Register (LR) for its 19 and 25.5 inch maritime monitors for an Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS) with radar applications, the first European certificate for electrical equipment in Japan.

    The EU RO Mutual Recognition Type Approval scheme covers type approval certification on selected components and equipment for which mutually agreed technical requirements have been developed and agreed by all stakeholders in the EU RO Group, ensuring consistency for different types of equipment.

    EIZO’s current line of DuraVision ECDIS monitors (FD2603W, FDU2603WT, FDS1904, FDS1904T) were issued the certificate. These monitors are built specifically for harsh maritime conditions and are calibrated at EIZO’s own factory to meet the highly specialised requirements of ECDIS systems. EIZO offers optional optical bonding for each model which is also produced in-house.

    Kazuhide Shimura, executive operating officer, EIZO Corporation commented: “Meeting requirements for major maritime classifications such as LR is extremely important in demonstrating that our products are proven for use in harsh environments. EU RO MR ensures that EIZO continues to provide a high degree of customer assurance to system integrators and end users in the maritime market, regardless of their location.”

    Fumio Kure, LR’s general manager in Japan said: “We are proud that LR was able to issue this certificate at this time as we had to rely on remote surveying capability for the approval as surveyor attendance was hindered by COVID-19 challenges. Congratulations to EIZO for obtaining EU RO MR Type Approval certificate in addition to LR class type approval.”
