eLog - electronic logbook by Anschütz
Digitized books with high data quality and global data access

Anschütz eLog is an electronic logbook for ships. It enables automated and digitized logbook entries that eliminate the cost and effort of paper logbook logistics while guaranteeing high data quality and global data access.

Integrated with data exchange services, voyage analytics systems and decision-support solutions, eLog enables the transition of a formerly manual and error-prone process of data collection and transfer into a single-sourced digital process chain for maritime data.

Key Benefits

Data quality

eLog eliminates the risk of improperly filled or incomplete logbooks.

  • Logbook data entries are legible, consistent and complete
  • Automatic data inputs of navigational sensor data at a defined time interval
  • User-friendly templates for fast and reliable manual logbook entries
  • Plausibility checks of logbook data for higher data quality
  • Reduces workload for crews, lower risk of errors

Secure, global available data

eLog uses blockchain technology and a data interface to a cloud.

  • Secure, tamperproof digital archiving of data
  • Personalized users, approval workflow through all command levels
  • Data access from anywhere in the world through a modern web interface
  • Digital entries can be searched, filtered, archived and exported

Extremely cost-effective

the starting point for more efficient processes onboard and for reports.

  • No more costs and efforts for paper logbook logistic and handling
  • Low initial cost for setup and installation (can be done by ship’s electrician)
  • Enables shore side inspection of data or reuse of data for other applications
  • Growing scope of logbooks, significant step toward paperless shipping

eLog supports all traditional logbook entries. In addition to the automatic data entries, users can enter new logbook entries with help of intuitive templates and workflows.

This is to ensure entries of a consistently high quality, regardless of disruptive factors such as fatigue, stress or weather. Incorrect entries can be edited, the change is displayed in a traceable manner. The eLog can be adapted to a specific vessel by setting vessels particulars and configuration according to engine specifications and equipments. Settings and information are available, for example a complete digital user manual.

eLog consists of a small gateway computer and a web browser application. The scope and the configuration of eLog may vary from ship to ship.

eLog is independent of the manufacturer of the AIS or the navigation systems.

  • Easy access to the history of the logbook data with day filter
  • Creation of reports, printing and exporting data kept simple
  • Sustainable and compliant digital information carrier of ship's operation documentation
  • Continuous updates according relevant regulations

eLog as a data service

Transforming numerous manual data processes into a digital chain of data for exchange, processing and analysis simplifies reporting and delivers valuable voyage insights in real time for shore-based stakeholders.

Integration of eLog with SOFeXChange by Osiris

Records entered into the eLog are automatically captured on the statement of facts (SOF) and provided to shore-based voyage stakeholders in real time.

Integration of eLog with Podium5 by StratumFive

Real-time data from the eLog is transferred to and analyzed by the voyage informatics platform to build a broader, more reliable picture of voyage performance or efficiency.

Integration of eLog with the s-Suite by StormGeo

The s-Suite uses eLog data to ensure compliance, provide voyage insights, increase transparency between ship and shore-based users, and support a ‘completely paperless’ ship governance strategy.

Integration of eLog with FleetMon by Jakota Cruise Systems

AIS data around the vessel is tracked, to enable vessel's owner analyzing own operation with best possible quality based on live or historical data.
