Supercharging the Loading Computer - the End of siloed Data Streams

As the heart of a vessel for onboard cargo operations, the loading computer processes a great deal of information that is used for safe and efficient vessel operation.

What if this onboard loading computer information did not only cover the current situation on board but was also able to be accumulated over time and aggregated for further analysis?

Using cloud-technology supercharges the loading computer to enable access to MACS3 calculations - wherever and whenever you need it. Since all relevant calculations are available in the cloud, one single source will not only reduce redundancy but enables better visibility and new ways of analysis of what has happened so far in the invisible background of a loading computer.

Imagine what is possible with loading computer information in the cloud! Explore the web applications of MACS3 Connected.

Fleet Overview

Benefit from the availability, completeness, and efficiency of direct access to loading conditions thanks to Fleet Overview, your window to all loading conditions of your fleet. Fleet Overview allows access to both current and historical loading conditions. An implicit reminder function ensures that the vessel feeds the current loading condition of the voyage into the system resulting in a consistent database. The availability of loading conditions over time is paramount for further use cases and analysis.

Condition Viewer

Speed up your responsiveness. Enjoy the visibility of a vessel's current and historical loading condition at a glance. Check basic MACS3 calculations such as stability, strength, tanks, etc. on every device available - whenever and wherever you are.

Container Search

Follow the journey of a container over time. Whenever the box was "guest" on a vessel of your fleet, Container Search shows on fingertip when, which vessel, what content was carried. Imagine how fast you will be able to inform stakeholders in case of emergency or cargo claim.

Dangerous Goods Check

Prior to a port call, the vessel reports the dangerous goods (DG) information to the respective hazmat office of the port or the national coast authority to control its DG segregation compliance. So far, this control is rather a tedious manual and fault-prone process. Now, MACS3 Connected DG Check automates the data flow and analyses every EDI file based on DG segregation rules e.g. by IMDG, and the vessel's document of compliance (DoC). The data check of reported DG by incoming vessels has never been easier and safer before.
