Oceanex Inc are
leaders in intermodal transportation services to the province of
Newfoundland and Labrador, Eastern Canada. Originating in 1909 the
company and predecessor companies have been providing this Atlantic
Canada service for more than 100 years. Oceanex was formed in 1990
through the merger of Atlantic Container Express Inc. of Montréal
and Atlantic Searoute Limited Partnership of Halifax. In 1991, a
marine terminal operator in Newfoundland merged its operations into
Oceanex, creating a major integrated transportation infrastructure
provider in Atlantic Canada.
In 2001, Oceanex opened a state- of- the art terminal building
in St. John's, bringing its operations staff into one facility. In
2005, the Oceanex Avalon, a newly constructed container ship was
added to the Oceanex fleet, offering a once weekly (ice breaking)
service from Montreal to St. John's.
In 2007, the company was privatized and since then two new
terminals have been opened in St. John's, Canada enhancing the
dispatch of cargo from St. John's throughout the province -
equivalent to about 45% of all cargo brought to the island. The
Oceanex Connaigra is the largest Canadian flagged ConRo ship in the
country and one of the most environmentally friendly ships in the
world, custom designed to provide a continuous, year-round service
to the province operating on a fixed weekly schedule.
Oceanex has been using IMDG Code for Intranet since 2013 and
Hazcheck Professional since February 2015. They began using
Hazcheck Professional because they needed to be able to carry out
stowage and segregation checks as quickly as possible.
Hussam Labib, Marine Safety, Quality & Environment
Manager commented, "We are very pleased with the
capability Hazcheck Professional has given us to check our loads
quickly and efficiently. Much quicker than with other systems and
procedures we have used in the past. It really has taken the hard
work out of processing our dangerous goods shipments."
Hazcheck Professional provides container line
operators with confirmation at the point of cargo booking that DG
shipments comply with the requirements of the IMDG Code. These
checks are executed in a fraction of the time required for manual
searching in the regulations and with maximum reliability and
accuracy. Hazcheck Professional then supports stowage and
segregation on board and produces the dangerous cargo manifest
required by ports en route.
for Intranet is for organisations requiring the
Amendment 39-18 IMDG Code to be available throughout their global
operations, hosted on their own intranet server. It contains the
full text of the English language IMDG Code and Supplement.
