Agreement enhances digital logbook provision

Nov 30 2018

ChartCo and Klappir Green Solutions have signed an exclusive partnership agreement.

Under the terms of the agreement, the two companies will market digital logbooks and software solutions for the maritime sector, within the ChartCo OneOcean platform.


These will focus on the provision of reporting, monitoring, compliance and validation services.


The addition of digital logbooks to ChartCo OneOcean’s solutions range means that comprehensive ship data can be recorded in an environmentally-responsible manner, conforming to guidance from the IMO and MARPOL.


As well as recording a ship’s position, course and distance travelled, electronic logbooks also catalogue environmentally-sensitive aspects, such as fuel usage and discharges, garbage disposal and greenhouse gas emissions.


One of the immediate customer benefits is that on board data recorded into the digital logbooks will be automatically synchronised via the ChartCo OneOcean cloud, allowing shoreside management to monitor fleet activity, conduct trend analysis and benchmarking exercises, and submit records to regulatory authorities, the companies claimed.


Furthermore, logging data digitally both simplifies and shortens a complex and time-consuming manual process and helps to eliminate errors. Today, more than 50,000 commercial ships are required to complete a large volume of logbooks.


“The maritime sector is in many ways leading the field in environmental reporting and compliance,” Jón Ágúst Thorsteinsson, Klappir CEO, said, “so entering into a partnership with ChartCo is an important step for us in accessing international maritime markets.”


“We are really pleased about our partnership with Klappir,” added Martin Taylor, ChartCo CEO. “Their environmental maritime software complements our broad range of digital solutions and is a logical extension of our EnviroManager solution, which empowers crews to comply with environmental regulations. It’s very exciting to enhance our offering to customers with e-record books.


“We always listen to our clients, and this new partnership is further proof of our ongoing commitment to addressing their needs, which is of paramount importance to us. And it continues to demonstrate our role as a global leader of digital maritime services,” he concluded.
