Shipping safety organisation Trinity House has deployed technology to help it manage the levy system through which it collects revenue.

The public body provides nearly 600 aids to navigation, ranging from lighthouses, buoys and beacons to satellite navigation technology. Since 1514, it has been funded by light dues levied on commercial shipping in some of the busiest sea lanes in the world.

To replace manual processing, the firm contracted IBM business partner Strategic Thought to build a system based on IBM's DB2 database and Websphere application server. Since the implementation, errors have been reduced as the levy is collected directly from shipping firms' bank accounts, Trinity House said.
