Tanker Operators Gain Access to Real-time Port/Terminal Info

Thursday, November 08, 2007
INTERTANKO members now have access to near real-time information about the terminals their ships plan to visit, since the Association’s Terminal Vetting Database is now hosted on the Q88.com website. INTERTANKO’s Terminal Vetting Database now works in a similar way to the SIRE and CDI systems. Any low scoring comments on a particular terminal will be forwarded by INTERTANKO to the terminal in question (withholding details of ship and owner) requesting comment from the terminal on root cause analysis and successful implementation of corrective actions and close out. The terminal’s comments will be entered into the database alongside the original report; if no comments are received by the terminal after 30 days, then that will also be recorded. Reflecting numerous expressions of concern from members over reports that the water depth at some terminals is less than shown on the charts, the TVD includes new questions on the accuracy of water depth at the berth. INTERTANKO has worked closely with Q88.com to ensure that the upgrade of its Terminal Vetting Database meets members’ demands. This is not a commercial enterprise. It is supplied at no charge to the Association’s members and associated members as a direct INTERTANKO service whose primary purpose is to enhance safety.
