KALE BECOMES FIRST INDIAN TECH COMPANY TO JOIN PORT ASSOCIATION AS IT PILOTS SOLUTION TO DIGITALISE THE MARITIME SECTOR


Kale to share maritime digitisation expertise as new member of the International Association of Ports & Harbors, as it trials a soon-to-be mandatory Maritime Single Window

Mumbai, India, Tuesday 12th July 2022: Kale Logistics Solutions (Kale) has become the first IT company in India to join the International Association of Ports & Harbors (IAPH), bolstering its commitment to accelerating digital transformation at a crucial time in the maritime industry.

Kale will add its technology expertise to the voices of 280 ports and port-related businesses counted among the membership of the Tokyo-headquartered trade association, which represents the interests of port authorities and operators at regulatory level.

High on the agenda for Kale, IAPH members, and the entire global maritime industry is the standardisation and harmonisation of electronic ship-to-shore communication.

In May this year, the International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) Facilitation Committee announced amendments to the Facilitation (FAL) Convention that will make the single window for data exchange mandatory in ports around the world from January 2024, marking a significant step in the acceleration of digitalisation in shipping.

As a pioneer in the design and implementation of cargo community systems for both maritime and air cargo, Kale has already developed its Maritime Single Window to meet the new requirements of IMO FAL convention 46.

This scalable system enables public authorities to combine and coordinate the electronic transmission of data to ensure that information only has to be inputted once and is reused to the maximum extent possible.

“As the first IT solutions provider to join from India, we would like to take this opportunity with IAPH to promote digitisation and technology adoption within the maritime sector,” said Vineet Malhotra, Co-Founder & Director, Kale Logistics Solutions.

“We aim to bring the industry together through the IAPH platform to drive the enhancement of port efficiency, sustainability, reduction of CO2 emissions, and the building of green corridors.

“We hope to achieve significant synergies with this partnership to promote trade facilitation and ease of doing business in the global maritime sector.”

Kale is soon to begin a Proof of Concept for its Maritime Single Window with ports in APAC and Africa and is extending the opportunity to trial the solution for a limited time to ports elsewhere around the world.

Our Vision

The objective of SESAR is to modernise European ATM by defining, developing and delivering new or improved technologies and procedures (SESAR Solutions).

SESAR’s vision builds on the notion of trajectory-based operations’ and relies on the provision of air navigation services (ANS) in support of the execution of the business or mission trajectory — meaning that aircraft can fly their preferred trajectories without being constrained by airspace configurations.

SESAR Deployment Manager

The SESAR Deployment Manager (SDM) function is defined by the Article 9 of Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) N°409/2013. Under the oversight of the European Commission, the SDM function consists of the synchronisation and the coordination of the deployment of the Common Projects. A Common Project is a Commission Implementing Regulation which mandates the implementation of the most essential operational changes in the European ATM Master Plan by the Member States of the European Union and their operational stakeholders. The first Common Project is known as the Pilot Common Project (PCP) and is defined by the Regulation (EU) N°716/2014. The SDM synchronises and coordinates implementation against the SESAR Deployment Programme which is a project view of the Common Projects organizing their implementation into optimum sequences of activities by all the stakeholders required to implement. To develop and maintain the SESAR Deployment Programme in close consultation with all the stakeholders is another important task under the SDM function.
