NAVTOR’s revolutionary Passage Planning module has been nominated in leading industry title SMART4SEA’s annual awards scheme, competing with three other nominees for the coveted e-Navigation prize. The NavStation module, originally launched in 2017 and updated this year, has been recognized for its ability to greatly reduce vessel administration duties, while ensuring documentation compliance, safety and accuracy.
NAVTOR, along with Goodtech, Veracity by DNV GL and SINTEF is joining forces with Wilhelmsen Ship Management to create the open and fully distributed Maritime Data Space ecosystem. On Friday, 26th of October the Maritime Data Space project was officially initiated with a kickoff meeting, hosted by Wilhelmsen Ship Management at Lysaker, Oslo.
Nobody actually likes ship reporting. No one on vessels, no one on-shore. It’s time consuming, boring, irritating and, unfortunately, essential. There are tens, sometimes hundreds (well at least over 100) of different reports a ship may be obliged to submit during a single journey, many of which contain mostly the same information, which, infuriatingly, has to be manually inputted. It seems like every authority, from ports to customs, to health and border controls, wants a piece of you (your information, but also your time and resources). It’s a huge administrative burden.
However, here at NAVTOR we’re working to ensure that one day – maybe one day soon – it’s nothing more than a bad memory.
We are pleased to announce the release of NavTracker 7.7. The new version is another step towards ensuring better interaction between shore-based teams and on-board crews. New capabilities of the 7.7 version include:
In addition to all the new and improved features above the 7.7 version has also had some minor bug fixes to improve overall user experience. All the new features are described in more detail in the updated user manual in NavTracker.
