Maritime Exchange Completes Enhanced Maritime Intelligence System

The Maritime Exchange for the Delaware River and Bay, a not for profit trade association representing the interests of maritime-related businesses in the tri-state region, announced the completion of a major project to convert its community based port information software to a new Internet-based platform. Known as Maritime On-Line (MOL), the system includes a collection of applications to assist maritime and law enforcement personnel with the day-to-day operations of vessel, cargo, and crew processing through U.S. seaports. The Maritime Exchange has been in the business of tracking vessel movements on the Delaware River since it was formed in 1872. MOL, developed by and for the Delaware River port community, expands upon this role to electronically disseminate advance vessel arrival and movement schedules, provide a detailed hazardous material reporting system, and facilitate electronic reporting by the community to various federal government agencies. A key component of the system, which has been in the spotlight of the maritime trade industry due to recent port security regulations is the TRACS module. TRACS is used by commercial cargo carriers for reporting import cargo manifest documentation to the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Automated Manifest system (AMS). CBP has set deadlines for the submission all import manifest information to be automated electronically later this year, with a March 4 deadline for ocean shipments.
