Operational data is unpredictable

Port operators need timely and accurate information about vessel events for port calls to run smoothly. Unfortunately, current methods for generating and communicating operational data are antiquated, manual, unaligned and unpredictable. As a result, inaccurate data is often exchanged inconsistently, unclearly, or not at all, making port call optimization impossible. This leads to unexpected changes in the arrival and departure times of vessels, which disrupts planning for vessel operations and related activities such as nautical services. 

The essential digital foundation for efficient port call operations

永利皇宫app下载注册 standards make port operations more predictable by ensuring every piece of data about events is aligned, accessible and actionable by every stakeholder, and that data is shared according to a clear, consistent and unambiguous process.With this level of transparency in place, it is possible to apply just-in-time (JIT) principles to port call events. Once established, JIT planned operations will reduce congestion, delays, waiting time and idle time. This will improve the customer experience and ultimately make port calls more sustainable by eliminating unnecessary fuel consumption and lowering emissions. 

Key benefits

Our standards will provide several key benefits for you as a bank.

  1. Operational transparency   
    永利皇宫app下载注册 JIT standards provide visibility into port call activities by allowing stakeholders to automatically share real-time event data. This increases operational efficiency overall and enables ports to optimise operational planning and resource utilisation for activities such as nautical services.  
  2. Port Safety 
    永利皇宫app下载注册 standards create clarity around port call events and provide visibility into vessel information such as location and dimensions. Having this information readily available will make port calls safer.   
  3. Sustainability 
    Ports today are polluted by vessels at anchorage. Additionally, recent studies estimate that JIT arrival of vessels and slow steaming to port can reduce greenhouse gas emissions on par with the total annual CO2 emission of a small European country such as Croatia.  Source: GIA/GloMEEP – Just-in-Time Arrival Guide.
  4. A lightweight operational framework for port call events 
    The semantics and definitions of the 永利皇宫app下载注册 JIT standard are aligned with the IMO and ITPCO work on JIT Arrival Guide.  The message format follows a clear structure and is very lightweight, which makes implementation very easy. with only 22 message attributes included, of which a part is optional.
