To be launched at the Interferry Conference, Split,
Croatia, 7-11 October 2017
We are pleased to announce that E-Dea, an IT software
development company that offers innovative solutions for ferries,
cruises and ports has integrated Exis Technologies' Hazcheck Web
Service dangerous goods compliance functionality into the latest
version of their software platform for ferries, cruise and RoRo
The Hazcheck Web Service is a set of dangerous goods data
packages and routines for incorporation into cargo booking,
handling, ERP and planning systems. It offers IMDG Code compliance
and the additional provisions and/or variations applicable when
using the 49 CFR, ADR, TDG and RID regulations with the IMDG
- Dangerous Goods List databases: check data including UN
numbers, proper shipping names, variants, classes, subrisks,
packaging and flashpoints. Wildcard searches supported.
- Segregation/stowage routines: calculate the segregation
requirements between containers/vehicles containing incompatible
dangerous goods or segregation within CTUs. Identify if shipments
are permitted on or under deck on cargo, passenger ships, in tanks,
limited and excepted quantities.
- Packaging routines: check that commodities are shipped in
compliant packages and do not exceed maximum permitted weight or
- Restrictions and prohibitions: check against customer specific,
vessel or location restrictions as entered on a case by case
E-Dea customers can now check their cargo shipments against the
regulations before they leave the port to ensure that there are no
potential accidents once out at sea.

Marco Pavoncelli, E-Dea Chief Commercial
"E-Dea is delighted to be able to offer the Hazcheck
functionalities within our software products.Several ferry
companies have already approached us regarding integrating it into
their current system. Many people do not realise that the IMDG Code
regulations apply to passenger ships as well as deep sea container
lines. Ferries and RORO companies also need to be aware of the
substances that are being carried on their ships for the safety of
the passengers and the crew. As members of Interferry ourselves,
E-Dea and Exis Technologies felt that the Interferry Conference
would be an excellent platform to launch this new service jointly
to the other Interferry members".
