VIGIEsip System : call management system in the Aquitaine navigation area


VIGIEsip is a “Port Community System”, a computer programme that allows all port professionals to work together in a safe environment.

All sea and river cruise professionals use this programme with a twofold objective:

  • Obtain live traffic information concerning the navigation area (docked or sailing liners)
  • Allow ship owners and their agents to make a reservation for a stopover at one or several port terminals or wharfs in the area.
