Chart Maintenance

Charts are continuously being updated, sometimes with a number of corrections needed for each chart along a route. The workload is high especially when it comes to a vessel carrying many charts covering multiple routes. ChartCo has an extensive tracings service that addresses this very issue, removing the burden from the mariner and providing a reliable method of ensuring up to date folios of charts.

Tracings are distributed weekly or at other intervals according to requirements and can be shipped directly to vessels or consolidated for delivery to offices of shipping agents.

  • Efficient and accurate correcting method.
  • Up to 90% time saving in chart correction process.

ChartCo was the first to commercialise the production of tracings in early 1971 and have become the benchmark in chart correcting and a brand to be trusted. We produce approximately 10,000 tracings per year along with notice to mariners updates that we distribute across the world covering ADMIRALTY, US charts and other official charts from national hydrographic offices.

ChartCo is quality and service focused and has Quality Management System ISO 9001:2008 and Environmental Management Standard ISO 14001:2004 accreditations. The tracings team operates under strict quality controls to compile masters and produce tracings packs all of which are printed in the UK.
