A reliable port starts with reliable information
Across the maritime industry, there is a requirement for reliable, accurate and easily accessible nautical port information. Avanti seeks to address the industry's needs for: increased port efficiency; improved berth-to-berth passage planning; enhanced port safety; reduced emissions from ships in port; improved information in navigational charts and publications.
Avanti is an initiative of the International Harbour Masters' Association, developed in cooperation with the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office.
  • Avanti aids harbour masters to manage their nautical port information.
  • For each participating port, Avanti provides a Port Information Guide with reliable nautical information, which is kept up to date by the harbour master.
  • The United Kingdom Hydrographic Office validates this information for use in its navigational products.
