Consist is an IT specialist in custom applications with broad experience in the maritime economy. Our customers include port administrators, pilot's associations, the supply industry and logistics companies who use innovative, cost-saving IT solutions developed by Consist. One freely accessible solution is our Ship information System.
Even when systems are working perfectly, probably every port in the world features people with lists running through row after row of trailers and containers looking for one or more of them that have gotten lost. It’s by no means rare for a trailer accidentally to end up in the wrong storage location or to be moved intentionally and then forgotten. But if a shipper is waiting for the unit or if a ship actually departs without being able to wait on that trailer, business damages follow. LHG minimizes risks like these with its new solution, developed with Consist’s support.
Our ancestors found new continents using magnetic compasses. Even in today’s digital world, they still have an important job. The German pilot service and especially the pilots of the Kiel Canal use their compass regulation service to ensure the correct function of the equipment. Consist supports this process with an iPhone application that signifi cantly simplifi es the regulation process thanks to the functionality and mobility of the devices.
Navigating a ship is a complex process involving a variety of different technical systems. Particularly in stressful situations, it is important for these systems to work together seamlessly so that the crew can concentrate on their nautical tasks. With the new generation of ship’s bridges, “Synapsis Intelligent Bridge Control”, Raytheon Anschütz is taking this challenge on in a consistent manner: An intelligent integration platform for bridge software improves the nautical and business operation of the ship and, thanks to its service-oriented architecture, it can also be adapted to specific customer needs.
The pilots of the Kiel Canal lead 30,000 ships per year through one of the narrowest and heavily traveled waterways in the world. Advising the ship’s captain, pilots rely both on many years of estuary experience and IT components that have been integrated by Consist into a professional, innovative situation overview.
Who wouldn‘t like to enjoy a cocktail in the casino bar or sample a tempting menu in the Bella Donna Restaurant on Deck 10 of the AIDAdiva, and give room and time to their dreams of faraway lands? If you don‘t have the time or the opportunity, you can still enjoy the anticipation or the memories of such an experience in the pleasant, non-rocking ambience of a Kiel restaurant on the waterfront.
The Kiel Canal is the most-traveled artificial shipping lane in the world. Shipping companies, canal pilots, shipping agents, and public administration offices measure and control the traffic, ensuring among other things the safety of shipping traffic for the 99 km between the North Sea and the Baltic. The Vessel Event & Reporting System VERS developed by Consist has provided information since 2006 for the control of processes in the Kiel Canal, and now in connection with Google Earth additional added value is available for individual control by canal pilots and shipping companies.
The Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft mbH (LHG), with about 1000 employees, operates the public ports in the Hanseatic City of Lübeck, making it Germany’s largest port operator on the Baltic Sea. Not only are 30 million tons of goods transported every year, but also about 300,000 passengers use the ferry connections to Scandinavia and the Baltic. LHG is successfully continuing centuries of Lübeck’s tradition as a central hub in the Baltic Sea economic region.
MaK DATA SYSTEM has implemented an up-to-the-minute online schedule adapted to current traffic and weather conditions, for the Schlepp- and Fährgesellschaft Kiel (SFK, Kiel tug and ferry company). Fjord ship passengers can view the schedule on digital displays at the main landing stages, or via the Internet. This allows SFK to increase customer friendliness, making better planning possible for commuters and tourists. The Kiel IT service provider developed the online schedule based on the maritime solution "Vessel Event and Reporting System" (VERS).
