Project Description

Ports are complex places, by nature, and there is a good deal of interconnectivity between various systems and processes. Vessel turnaround time is the most important thing and the driver for success but, in increasingly complex environments, how can organisations maintain control of, and optimise, their operations? The answer is simpler and faster to implement than you think – IoT.

As more ports digitise the quayside, they run the risk of dropping their productivity rate if there are any delays in the delivery of vehicles to the right place on site at the right time. The ships also need to be in the right berth given the conditions and the right cranes need ot be ready to offload the cargo. What IoT can deliver is the monitoring of all the processes and assets, creating interconnectivity between various locations, plants and processes, ensuring consistent asset tracking throughout.

Creating a complete overview of your entire port operation, digitising it, and optimising it seems a daunting task but we can solve this with IoT. Surprisingly, it’s not as complex or high-tech as you’d think and can be overlaid in a short amount of time with little to no disruption to your business. It can incorporate all your existing systems, devices and equipment and enable the deployment of real-time strategic changes.

Operation of Key Facilities & Assets on Quayside and Mobile

Intelligent interconnectivity of machinery, systems and processes, regardless of whether they’re existing or new, allow real-time deployment of changes to process control based on demand and resource availability. Improved turnaround time is the result.

Production Asset Management & Maintenance

From quality control, damage and breakdowns, location tracking and bottlenecks within the port location and environs, to cargo handling flow monitoring, services and predictive maintenance.

Cost Reduction

More efficient use of resources and utilities, avoiding surplus cargo build up and smarter turnaround rates based on demand.
Real-time asset management shows the health and status of various machinery, allowing for pre-emptive maintenance.
Lower cost of ownership, smarter spending and workforce optimisation.

Data Management

Optimisation, digitisation and visibility of the port and logistics environment and all of its components.
Simplification of complex site processes using predictive analytics and smart BI.

Field Service

Client behaviour and preference monitoring, packaging and logistical preparation.
