container line customers to help shippers share information about port DG prohibitions and restrictions. Container lines, ports and terminals can upload their DG handling policies and restrictions into the portal free of charge to help shippers, forwarders and others involved in the movement of goods. Hazcheck Detect - a new cargo screening solution launched in

2020, which scans all booking details for keywords, validates against rules and highlights suspicious bookings to identify misdeclared and undeclared dangerous goods (DG) and compliance cargo. Maersk is the first customer. Hazcheck Inspections - a web-based database and access portal for

inspection companies to plan and enter details of cargo inspections completed on behalf of container or vessel operators. Regulatory data Exis supplies Amendment 40-20 Hazcheck data and sophisticated validation ‘Toolkits’ to integrate with existing computer-based systems. The toolkits can also be supplied as a web service to integrate with ERP systems for example, SAP and Oracle EBS. Additional transport regulations (ADR, RID, 49 CFR and TDG) are also available.
