Smartflow Declaration of Inspection

ISGOTT Solution

Smartflow digitizes the handshakes between vessels and terminals involved in the Declaration of Inspection - ISGOTT procedures.

It has created digital checklists for each part 1 to 9 which makes pre-arrival, arrival and repetitive checks easier for the planner & loading master at the terminal and ship’s captain at the tanker. All of these procedures can be performed by them on different devices using the same common digital Smartflow environment. These digital ISGOTT checklists not only reduce time but also standardize the entire workflow, ensuring minimum administrative errors.

The Smartflow ISGOTT solution allows all the parties involved to access and change a tanker's information in real time according to its loading or discharging status. Due to covid-19 restrictions, few terminals demand contactless smooth operations and Smartflow allows remote support leveraging workers’ flexibility. Smartflow’s objective is to provide a paperless, user-friendly solution reducing ship/shore documentation while focusing on the ultimate goal of health, safety and environmental protection.
