Innovation at Navis
A major evolution is taking place in some of the current concepts used for driving operational planning, control and execution practices at terminals: but it is not enough and several industry experts are calling for more progress or a ‘productivity quantum leap’.
A global trade digital framework will be needed that provides:
- For terminals: necessary information to optimize performance, storage, better handling house-keeping, and to drive effectively capacity, performance and cost trade-offs,
- For carriers: holistic software suites optimizing stowage planning, network value and vessel performance, utilization and capacity,
- For shippers and cargo-owners: data and application platform including visibility and better control, enabling smoother and higher-value service.
The technology exists today to eliminate an estimated $17 billion of waste through the adoption of more integrated solutions. But for the vision of the port of the future to be fulfilled it will require strong industry leadership and a change in mindset.
