South Korean maritime software maker Cyberlogitec has joined hands with compatriot feeder operators Sinokor Merchant Marine, Namsung Shipping and CK Line to expedite the digitalisation of dangerous goods management.

Cyberlogitec is a subsidiary of Eusu Holdings, formerly Hanjin Shipping Holdings, the previous holding company for now-defunct Hanjin Shipping and other businesses controlled by Choi Eun-young. After Hanjin Shipping went bankrupt in 2017, the holding company was renamed.

Cyberlogitec, Namsung, Sinokor and CK Line have formed a consortium to develop an integrated digital solution, Opus DGL, which can update information on international dangerous goods regulations to efficiently manage the carriage of dangerous goods.

To make the programme user-friendly, there is no need to replace the existing ship’s operating system, as Opus DGL is configured such that it can be linked to the current system.

The consortium hopes to launch Opus DGL in October.

The carriage of dangerous goods has been in fire since a number of highly publicised fires on container ships, such as X-Press Pearl and KMTC Hong Kong. Misdeclaration and improper storage of dangerous goods have often been pinpointed as the culprits.

The Opus DGL consortium said, “We decided to participate in the consortium to digitally convert shipping procedures to improve voyage management and operational efficiency when carrying dangerous goods.

“Opus DGL manages international and country-specific dangerous goods regulations, providing unrestricted access to up-to-date information, and manages the details of all dangerous cargos so that customers can easily gain visibility into the shipments. We can also provide customers with pre-shipment simulation results and freely exchange dangerous goods approval requests between carriers.”
