Port call optimisation and digitalisation
The Port call optimisation and digitalisation’s role in shortening bulk carrier port stays webinar took place 28 June 2023, and commenced with a presentation from Swedish Maritime Administration’s Mr Siwe.
The theme of his presentation was Making money and saving the planet just in time. Based on a case study involving the Finnish dry bulk company ESL Shipping, he gave an example of how virtual arrival is developing into just-in-time port calls.
ESL Shipping’s adoption of virtual arrival did not require investment. By working with the ports on co-operative vessel scheduling, the company saved up to 24% on voyage costs.
