Official distributor for JHA

Japan Coast Guard

ChartCo has been appointed an official distributor for all Japanese W Series paper charts, Sailing Directions and special publications issued by the Japan Coast Guard.

ChartCo has been chosen by the Japan Hydrographic Association (JHA) for its extensive experience and global presence in the industry.

It is a legal requirement that all international commercial ships carry paper charts, many also choose to carry locally produced charts as these are often more specialised and include additional details.

As the largest ADMIRALTY Chart Agent and JHA’s appointed distributor, ChartCo is able to provide customers with a comprehensive choice of navigational charts and publications covering this important geographical region.

Nigel Mellors, Business Manager Key Accounts, ChartCo says: The successful launch of the JP chart series has seen a growth in demand for official Japanese W series charts and publications. This new distribution agreement will enable us to add a highly valued and respected product range to our paper chart and publication product portfolio, enabling us to meet growing customer demand effectively. Furthermore, the addition of Japanese charts and publications will ensure our customers continue to navigate safely in Japanese waters.

ChartCo will commence distribution of Japanese charts and publications from its UK head office from 13th April and plan to place additional stocks in its Singapore depot later in the year to benefit its pan Pacific based customers.
