Technology Boosting Collaboration

How can the latest technology serve business? At the first glance, the answer is simple, but it’s better to ask the professionals who provide tools for that. We’re talking with Guenter Schmidmeir and Bruce Jacquemard to ask about collaboration and Navis’ recent activities, as well as make an update to our interview with Andy Barrons from Navis and Robert Inchausti from XVELA, published in Baltic Transport Journal 1/2017, and this year’s first printed edition of Harbours Review.

Case Study: Riyadh Dry Port's Journey to Smooth, Reliable Integration

On Oct. 5, 2016, Riyadh Dry Port (RDP), a rail facility connected to the Sea Port of Eastern Province in Dammam, Saudi Arabia, experienced a catastrophic event they luckily had been preparing for - a major electricity breakdown, with all operations, systems and technical departments at a complete standstill. During the unexpected electrical crisis, the data centers were supported by generators and a robust UPS system, aiding the primary and secondary data centers to run smoothly. Because N4 continued to run, port operations were unaffected by this unexpected electricity impact. The BIG IT team emerged unscathed from this 7-hour electricity shutdown because RDP had designed, configured and set up robust and reliable IT infrastructure inside the port. The N4 systems remained stable and consistent.

Guy Rey-Herme answers: "Working with shipping lines and terminal operators to digitally transform the stowage planning and execution process, which has remained unchanged for the last 30 years, using cloud technology—eliminating inefficiencies caused by siloed information systems and inconsistent data sharing."

Malta Freeport Terminals has successfully introduced the most advanced Terminal Operating System available worldwide that revolutionises the container handling process and will consolidate the Freeport's standing as one of the leading hubs in the Mediterranean.

Navis announced that Tecon Rio Grande (Tecon RG), a subsidiary of Wilson Sons Group, reached a historic level of productivity in port operations following its recent upgrade to the N4 terminal system. On July 25th, the terminal achieved 140 moves per hour during the operation of Monte Tamaro, which connects from Brazil to the East Coast of North America.
