ISS World of Ports is responding to the demand for more collaborative marine assurance data with new feedback features, improved accessibility and online mapping tools.


With safe operations always at the forefront of tanker operations, the service available at www.iss-worldofports.com provides marine assurance teams with the data to assess whether a vessel matches up with the particular requirements of load, discharge and husbandry port.


This access to specialist terminal and berth information offers up to the minute coverage of restrictions information for 1,500 ports, 3,000 terminals and 6,800 berths in 169 countries worldwide for fast and confident fixture decisions.


Additional new features include increased personalization to customize the user experience. World of Ports’ own 170 data fields, users can provide direct feedback on a port call, make comments on a particular berth or upload documents to provide additional user information on a facility, creating truly collaborative data.


Users can also store their own private notes on ports and pull in information from other data feeds including social media to allow all port related information to be managed in one workspace when screening a port call and provide maximum user flexibility. ISS World of Ports is also now optimized for use on mobile phones or tablet devices.


New mapping tools deliver powerful map based navigation to precisely define the geographic areas required and accurately retrieve port information. Comprehensive database search functions allow every aspect of port, terminal and berth parameters to be checked to provide complete assurance in vessel compatibility and maximum safety.


Piers Yea, General Manager for ISS Group Information, said. “The new online service uses the latest technologies for greater user accessibility and a more collaborative approach to deliver the very best in marine assurance data.”


The ISS World of Ports team has many years of sea going tanker experience, with qualified mariners and local agents central to regularly collecting and assessing berth restriction information.
