All of this was realized with the installation of iStow on MV. Meratus Sorong, on August 25, 2022, at the Teluk Lamong Terminal, Surabaya. Along with the installation, training was also conducted for the crew of MV. Meratus Sorong.

iStow on MV. Meratus Sorong is also equipped with BAPLIE features. Due to the very limited berthing time, data exchange between ships is carried out using the standard BAPLIE format. Thus, the ship can smoothly exchange loading lists and bayplans data with all ports worldwide.
