On Thursday 28th of September 2017, improved port services will become available in the national ship reporting system SafeSeaNet Norway. The updates will enable ships and agents to communicate digitally with Norwegian ports and port facilities.
Instead of requesting a quay via telephone or email, vessels and agents can send a quay request through SafeSeaNet Norway upon reporting arrival. The relevant port or port facility can respond to the request in the system, thereby simplifying ship-shore communication.
When choosing a port of destination, the vessel or agent can request to dock at an ISPS approved or non-ISPS approved quay in the relevant area. Select a quay directly in the system or by using the embedded map tool.
In the system, the vessel or agent can also indicate type of services required at the relevant quay.
Please note that the abovementioned improvements are only available in ports and port facilities that have made these services digitally available in SafeSeaNet Norway.
The Norwegian Coastal Administration is actively working to improve the use of SafeSeaNet Norway for Norwegian ports and port facilities. Our aim is to make digital services readily available to vessels and agents in most Norwegian ports and port facilities.
