Liberia launches innovative app for shipping industry

06 March, 2014

The Liberian Registry has launched a powerful state-of-the-art mobile application (app) to enable owners, managers, operators and others to communicate and interact with the registry on a round-the-clock basis. The FlagState App builds on Liberia’s commitment to provide innovative technology and services to its clients, who own, manage and operate more than 4,000 vessels worldwide.

From an iPhone, iPad or an android device, users can read up-to-the-minute news and developments; access a comprehensive Global Maritime Events Calendar and, with the click of a button, add events to their calendar and share upcoming events; verify the authenticity of certificates and documents for Liberian-flagged ships; search Liberia’s global network of inspectors and ISM/ISPS/MLC auditors; validate seafarer credentials; submit an MLC Complaint Resolution Form; track the daily vessel positions on an interactive world map of all Liberian-flagged ships; browse photos of Liberia’s quality fleet; and quickly access the registry’s Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn profiles.

Allison Williams, Communications & Research Manager at the Liberian International Ship & Corporate Registry, the US-based manager of the Liberian Registry, says, “The demand for instant access to important information in the shipping industry has never been greater than it is today. New technology means that there is no longer any need to be out of touch with developing news and events, wherever you are in the world. Liberia is dedicated to harnessing that technology for the benefit of its clients, and the FlagState App is a perfect demonstration of its commitment in that regard.”

Liberia’s FlagState App is now available for download in both the Google Play (http://bit.ly/NQnwgV) and Apple’s iTunes App Stores (http://bit.ly/1q0gKnS). To download the App, simply scan the QR Code with your smartphone or search for ‘LISCR’ in either App Store and select the FlagState App.

The Liberian Registry is one of the world’s largest and most active shipping registers, and has long been considered the world’s most technologically advanced maritime administration. It has a long-established track record of combining the highest standards of safety for vessels and crews with the highest levels of responsive service to owners. www.liscr.com
