Container line Maersk are the first customer signed to the Hazcheck Detect solution.
Henrik Lauritsen, Director at Maersk, says, “Exis Technologies has developed a solution that could be used industry wide and allows easy sharing of keywords and rules between industry partners. This is very important so that container lines know that partner lines are searching using the same criteria. The service went into live operation in February 2020 and we are finding an average of 40 containers a week which are stopped, undeclared DG or re-declared as DG. In the past these containers would have been loaded on board as non DG cargo or misdeclared. Critically we get the search hits returned from Hazcheck Detect within seconds so that we can follow up quickly to ensure that suspicious cargo is not loaded on to the vessels.
We are delighted to be the first shipping line to start using Hazcheck Detect and we encourage more lines to come on board.”
