ChartCo launches fixed price PAYS solution

ChartCo is expanding its OneOcean digital solution with its new ‘Fixed Price Pay As You Sail’ (PAYS) system, which will be launched on July 1, 2019.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Vessels using PAYS will be tracked and only charged for ENC permits according to the routes they actually sail. Ship managers and owners will be provided with the Annual Fixed Price service, offering budgetary certainty on annual ENC costs as well as benefiting from processing one order and invoice per year.

“Our focus at ChartCo has always been to simplify the working life of mariners, and our new Fixed Price PAYS offering – combined with the fully integrated OneOcean platform – take simplicity to a new level,” said Howard Stevens, ChartCo CCO. “Our continued focus is on streamlining the process of buying navigational and compliance data. We’ve had an encouraging amount of customer uptake on our already existing Fixed Price Nautical Service, and our PAYS service – combining the two represents the next evolution of digital navigation.”

The combination of ChartCo’s OneOcean Fixed Price PAYS with the Fixed Price Nautical Service (FPNS) means that all navigational and compliance requirements are conveniently and efficiently covered with a single invoice.

PAYS also provides weekly updates exported to ECDIS via USB, DVD or network transfer. The solution is particularly useful for vessels that do not travel on fixed routes and are required to alter passages at any time as it eliminates the need to order new cells.{/mprestriction}

  • 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.
