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.
