STOW PLANS IN HIGH GEAR
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.
