NAPA Logbook

NAPA Logbook main view

Easy, error-free electronic record-keeping, reporting and compliance

As regulations become stringent, providing accurate and timely information to authorities is becoming essential for seafarers, ship owners, operators and managers. Omissions and delays in compliance can lead to hefty penalties or, in some cases, impact vessel operation itself.

In this complex environment, digital tools for record-keeping can take some pressure off, enabling crews to quickly complete entries with ease and accuracy while allowing shoreside teams to monitor and review information in sync with onboard action.

With approval from top Classification Societies for MARPOL and major Flag States recognizing the benefits of electronic logbooks, NAPA Logbook can be a one-stop solution for easy and accurate record-keeping, monitoring, reporting and compliance – onboard and onshore.

Still wondering if your fleet should switch to electronic logbooks? Here are some immediate benefits it’ll create for both the crew and shoreside teams.

Why NAPA Logbook?

NAPA Logbook has been approved by more than 20 major Flag State, including the world’s largest flags, such as Panama, Liberia, the Bahamas, and Malta. It also has received DNV’s type approval for MARPOL record-keeping. Discover why the NAPA Logbook is trusted by over 10,000 users globally, onboard and onshore.

For crew onboard: Faster, easier and error-free entries

Research shows NAPA Logbook could save up to 78% of the crew’s administrative time, reducing workload, the need to duplicate entries, and the chances of error.

  • Create entries faster with automated data fill-ins that you simply approve.
  • Eliminate errors and missing entries with standardized forms for different reports.
  • Avoid duplicate work by automatically copying the same information needed in different reports.
  • Do calculations easily and check values against boundary conditions to avoid errors.
  • Quickly search and print any event and official logbooks.
  • Create and approve entries from anywhere with our mobile app.
  • Monitor onboard status efficiently from anywhere with the electronic Status Board.
  • Have electronic checklists for smoother routines, such as arrivals, departures, bunkering etc., with clear progress indications of completed tasks.

For teams onshore: Standardized data and easier reporting

NAPA Logbook not only reduces workload onboard but also makes reporting, data auditing and analysis easier for the shoreside, unlocking new insights that got previously lost in unshareable paper logs.

  • Get real-time access to logbooks and entries as they are completed onboard.
  • Have error-free and standardized record-keeping for the whole fleet.
  • Simplify technical and environmental compliance reporting, including EU-MRV, MARPOL, ESG, CII, Ballast Water Management Convention, and more.
  • Monitor and audit any record book at any time through NAPA Fleet Intelligence.
  • Detect and address errors early and prior to vessel inspections or port calls.
  • Analyse trends, compare vessels and set benchmarks for better performance and efficiency.
  • Ease claims handling with tamper-proof historical data from digital logs.

However, conveniences are just the tip of the iceberg in comparison to the real value NAPA Logbook can bring to your fleet’s efficiency and operations.

For the Future: Critical link to unlock fleet’s untapped data

Right now, 90% of data generated on board ships never leave the deck. Which means, everyday operators are losing out on valuable insight that can improve safety, performance, and efficiency. A massive chunk of this data is currently hiding in paper-based logs.

Having visibility to a multitude of function reports and daily operational logs, NAPA Logbook immediately frees this BIG DATA by connecting to NAPA Fleet Intelligence. With cloud technology, your logbook data no longer remains held up onboard – it can interact and be combined with:

  • Other Logbooks
  • Different NAPA Solutions
  • Third-party tools like AIS, Weather data and such.

This helps identify new efficiency opportunities, creates new scope and possibilities for ship owners and operators to analyze and optimize operations by making the right data connections that previously were not possible.
