Marine Pilot Software

Working with the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority, we have developed a custom solution for the marine pilots at Port Castries, which can now be adapted for your own operations.

Marine Pilots at Port Castries, Saint Lucia, are using a new electronic touch screen system, developed for them by Ideal Business Services Ltd, to track vessels at sea and to access cargo and cruise berthing logistics prior to and after vessel arrival and departure.

Port Castries is managed by the Saint Lucia Air and Sea Ports Authority (SLASPA), which is also responsible for running the island's other principal seaport at Vieux Fort, and the George FL Charles and Hewanorra International Airports, as well as the smaller points of entry: Soufriere, Marigot and Rodney Bay Marina.

The new electronic touch screen system at Port Castries replaces the manual recording of vessel information. It provides a single access point where the marine staff can also access AIS (Automated Identification System) live vessel tracking, and a vessel berth plan via a 46" touch screen computer.

Main benefits of the new system include time saving; instant and accurate vessel updates from the Operations Department and an instant two-way means of communication between Operations to Marine and Marine to Operations.

The system is accessed via a web browser.
