Study into Berth Planning
Download our whitepaper on the Opportunities Related to Improved Berth Planning
As part of the Global Institute of Logistics’ mission to improve the global supply chain one port at a time, combined with SeaIntel Maritime Analysis’ mission to provide actionable market intelligence, we have collectively produced a whitepaper on how you can improve your berth planning and increase port efficiency. This paper explores the importance of the berth scheduling process and shows some examples of the magnitude of savings available. The paper also contains analysis on our berth scheduling survey carried out in 2012
The report shows if the time saved in port is used to allow slow steaming of vessels, the potential multi-million dollar savings available to the shipping lines.
The Berthing Survey reviews the vessel call planning process and shows some of the IT short comings of the 45 plus ports that responded.
In today’s shipping world two things are certain, slow steaming is here to stay and vessels will continues to increase in size. This white paper points to the importance of accepting this evolution and asks if the industry is ready to capitalise on change.Winner of the Queens Award for Enterprise; International Trade 2012
