Huangshi launches online application for DG shipping permits

31 October 2012
On 26 October, Huangshi Maritime Safety Authority approved the first online application for a dangerous goods shipping permit for the vessel ‘EQian JiangHuo 6335’, which was carrying 150 tons of sulphuric acid. The application was submitted by Daye Nonferrous Metals Logistics after two forms had been completed online, one listing the details of the cargo and the other declaring the suitability of the cargo for shipping.

The relevant maritime safety officials cross-checked the details and approved the permit. The whole process took less than 20 minutes. In comparison, the traditional way of obtaining a permit involving the applicant visiting the MSA office, would take at least half a day.

Throughout October, Huangshi MSA, about 145km downstream of Wuhan, Hubei province, hosted a series of training programmes for all companies that produce and transport dangerous cargo to learn how to use the online system. Those involved in the application process have been registered and authenticated.
