Top 3 Keys For Handling BIG Ships


 Collaboration is a key for big ship success.

[PTI Editor Richard Joy speaks to Executive Director of the Port of Los Angeles Gene Seroka on how to handle the largest ships calling in the whole of the US.]

How do you engage your shipping lines and container terminal?

Reports prove that many ports and terminals do not plan ahead.  This lack in planning always leaves a problem of poor access to the truckers and the actual owners of the cargo.  The Owners face a delay in receiving the cargo even when the containers are promptly discharged from the vessel and clear customs.

Key to handling big ships:

  • Improved sharing of real-time information will allow all parties to better coordinate the release of containers.
  • Terminals must engage in vessel stowage planning in advance in order to optimise their resources.
  • Shipping lines must have better capacity management, allowing  shipping lines and terminals to handle berthing windows.
  • The availability of Big data for the ports and shipping lines, must ensure the establishment of cloud-based technology and wifi capabilities that provide a network to connect various devices.

XVELA, subsidiary of TOS system provider Navis, has recently announced Hapag-Lloyd as the first carrier to enter into a pilot program of its cloud-based collaboration and real time information-sharing solution.
