Port Operations

Port operations refer to a series of maritime procedures that minimize disruption in the port and allow a smooth transition of ships and containers from one terminal to another. It requires efficient use of all ports, berth, roads, and equipment facilities and good communication between all the activities.

How Does a Ship Transfer Go?

Ships and vessels that are trading in the sea are in need of operation and management. As the ship-to-ship transfer (STS) industry increases in size and complexity, the managing of cargo becomes a critical part of shipbroking.

What is Port Community System?

Most of the world’s biggest ports use a specific system to ease information exchange between all parties that have activities related to the port. A Port Community System is a National Single Window that links individual seaports and all supply chain actors.

Port Efficiency and Vessel Turnaround Time

In ocean shipping, Vessel Turnaround Time- the time frame of arrival and departure of the vessel at a port- turns out to be the most influential factor in operations. For ship management organizations, owners, brokers, and suppliers; port efficiency, accessibility, and proximity are decision-making factors-all

Why Should I Care About Logistics?

Every day we use products shipped by global sea trade; for example, salt, soap, sugar, drinks, books, and electricity just to name a few. Therefore, without allows recognizing it, logistics impacts our everyday life. Logistics is at the center stage of the supply chain 

Every year vessel size increases while more goods are consumed, and thus more products are shipped by sea. This increase in demand by the human population is affecting logistics. Logistics must catch up to demand or the global supply chain will face many issues. When the global supply chain is impacted, this affects businesses and daily lives worldwide.

Vessel routes and practices must be optimized. Efficient logistics planning reduces costs and improves efficiency. Maritime actors are realizing that logistics affects the entire end-to-end supply chain, and therefore logistic transparency is important. 

Digitalization, digital shipping, and Smart Ships are revolutionizing logistics and providing transparency. They are using Artificial Intelligence, big data, and sensors to track ships and ensure ship safety. 

Effective logistics and global trade require a lot of skill and coordination between multiple entities. Digitalization clarifies logistic activities.

What Is a Ship Tracker?

A ship tracker, also known as a vessel tracker, uses technologies and equipment to track ships along their route. A ship tracker uses real-time data to constantly update maritime actors about a ship’s voyage status. 

This use of advanced technology allows us to know the exact location of a ship as well as an accurate estimated time of arrival (ETA)

Ship trackers are revolutionizing the maritime industry and global supply chain. 

The technologies that track ships also help to predict the best vessel route depending on weather and tidal predictions. Vessel tracking leads to safer routes in the case where a ship can avoid originally unforeseen weather events on their trajectory. 

Digital ships use vessel tracking among maritime actors and other ships. 

In today’s digital world where autonomous smart shipping is seen as the future of the maritime industry, these digital vessel tracking systems will continue to gain popularity. 

These autonomous ships will increase the transparency and efficiency of the global supply chain while reducing costs and improving safety.
