Exis Technologies launches new container inspection system, 19 February 2018
Exis Technologies is pleased to announce the launch of Hazcheck
Inspections, a web-based database and access portal for inspection
companies to plan and enter details of cargo inspections completed
on behalf of container or vessel operators. Two container
inspection companies, National Cargo Bureau and Port Supervisor
Rotterdam, have been instrumental in helping Exis to develop the
system in line with customer requirements.
The solution allows the container or vessel operator to login
with secure access and view or download inspection results and/or
analytics. Consistent data is recorded and reported
regardless of where and who records the inspection result.
Non confidential analytics data can be shared with partners and
third parties to help influence policy with respect to shipment of
dangerous goods by sea.
Operators have the option to send cargo details to the
inspection company so they can plan containers to select for
inspection. Pre-entered planned data can be re-used when the
inspections details are recorded. The system is supported by
the roll out of a common inspection protocol to new users of the
system to ensure common reporting.
National Cargo Bureau (NCB) is a non-profit organisation
headquartered in New York and operates nationally across the United
States with the sole mission of Safety of Life and Cargo at Sea.
NCB has been an Exis customer since 2006, purchasing IMDG Code
compliance systems for use in its compliance operations across the
United States. NCB has been working closely with Exis
Technologies to develop the Hazcheck Inspections specification
including the user interface and the type of data that container
inspection operations need to collect.
Bob Ahlborn, Vice President Liner Activities,
based in New York commented, "We are happy to be working alongside
Exis Technologies on this exciting project. This is a ground
breaking system which we are confident will improve the accuracy
and timeliness of information that container inspection companies
like NCB and shipping lines will be able to use to improve safety
