ABP HES operates a Port and Vessel Information System (PAVIS), which is the vehicle through which the Competent Harbour Authority monitors and controls the safety of navigation on the river.
The system provides a fully-integrated administration and information system for pilotage and vessel traffic services.
The system is split over two sites:
Spurn Point, Control Tower
Port House, Hull.
The control tower provides the traffic monitoring and control function at Port House, where the information assembly part of the system is located. This gives a clear point of entry for agents to pass information and requirements for pilots for all Humber, Trent and Ouse ports, jetties, etc.
VTS, Humber, divides the river into two districts: VTS Humber Approaches and VTS Humber.
