Malaysia & S.Korea Waters: Jeppesen Extends ENC Coverage

Press Release
Wednesday, December 12, 2012

Jeppesen is now distributing official Electronic Navigation Charts (ENCs) with local partners in Malaysia and Korea.

Jeppesen will distribute Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) ENCs for Malaysia from Jeppesen’s local partner Okenos. Included in this newly available ENC coverage is the Strait of Malacca, one of the most important commercial waterways in the world. As the main channel between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, the Strait of Malacca links the major Asian economies of India, China, Japan and South Korea. It is estimated that 25 percent of all oil transported by sea passes through the Strait of Malacca, notable for its shallow waters, narrow passages and heavy shipping traffic.

By providing the world’s mariners with trusted ENCs from the Royal Malaysian Navy, Jeppesen says it is helping vessels transit these treacherous waters safely and is further establishing itself as a leading provider of navigation solutions to the world shipping industry.

“This is a significant development for Jeppesen, as well as for our shipping clientele around the world,” said Michael Bergmann, Jeppesen Maritime Industry Director for Affairs and Services. “We want to express our gratitude to the Malaysia Hydrographic Office and our local partner Okenos for working closely with us on this important partnership.”

Jeppesen also recently signed a direct ENC distribution agreement with the Korea Oceanographic and Hydrographic Association (KOHA), further expanding coverage in Asia and strengthening Jeppesen’s position as a leading provider of ENCs for this critical region.
