ASIAN TERMINALS, INC. (ATI) at the start of the month implemented a new scheme designed to more effectively monitor vessel performance and productivity. The new system, Electronic Ship Working Log (e-SWL), is expected to avoid unnecessary billing disputes. Under the scheme, ship agents, shipping line representatives are required to sign and confirm the e-SWL to the container terminal division planning department at the end of every shift or upon vessel completion and before vessel departure.

In the event the ship agent fails to sign and confirm the SWL before vessel departure, the agent is given 24 hours after vessel departure to sign and confirm the SWL and to submit any SWL disputes. Otherwise, the SWL will be considered correct and final. Any subsequent disputes filed after the 24-hr period will no longer be entertained. “We strongly advise ship agents and shipping lines to timely sign and confirm the SWL to provide a fast, accurate and hassle-free billing presentment,” ATI said.
