Marine cargo booking system
FastBook is a web-based application that allows Sullivan Maritime’s clients to book trailers and other vehicles onto Sullivan Maritime managed cargo vessels sailing into and out of Malta. Sullivan Maritime staff can see the status of bookings for each voyage at a glance, and can review and approve the booking of vehicles containing hazardous materials, before using the application to automatically send loading lists to the port and vessel.
Clients can maintain their own vehicle fleet lists to save time when making bookings. A variety of custom reports are available to Sullivan Maritime staff in order to generate legally-required documentation and provide information to the vessel operators. FastBook replaces an entirely manual system which was based around multiple spreadsheets and was extremely paper-intensive.
FastBook was developed using open source and is built in HTML5/CSS/JS to ensure the widest possible distribution. With a responsive design the system can be accessed on smartphones or tablets as well as via the desktop.
