To overcome problems of forwarding stowage plans sufficiently quickly for port personnel to cope with all the relevant stowage factors, U.S. Lines now uses 20 Rapifax-100 units. These can transmit letter-size pages of stowage plans or other information in less than thirty seconds over ordinary voice-grade telephone lines. U.S. Lines has found a dramatic improvement in its overall operations since installation of the Rapifax system.
