Abstract

The Tanzanian shipping industry is fighting to achieve the efficient application of modern navigation equipment. The failures associated with electronic chart display and information system (ECDIS) users on modern ship in Tanzania, and their solutions, are main concern of this article. Based on the literature review and opinions of professional navigators investigated, the present faults faced by ECDIS users in Tanzania are identified. The frequent failures of ECDIS include the fluctuation of the information data due to the lack of constant electrical power, stop working, broken of ECDIS, failures of display information on the screen, ink problem on the screen and the lack of committed training etc. In addition, the findings show that, most departments do not operate by professional personnel, lack of service at light time of recommended, lack of validation of knowledge to crews, lack of modern merchant vessels equipped with ECDIS undertaking coastal shipping and lakes in Tanzania waters, and lack of qualified officers to use ECDIS. Based on the findings, this article concludes that modern systems for technology such as the ECDIS are particularly important in maintaining safeties and reliability of marine transport, however, the incapability to apply ECDIS in ships to make accurate marine transport in the context of a rapidly changing technology is also causing risk.
