In this whitepaper we examine the benefits of slow steaming and analyse the financial benefits from improvements in the berthing process.
For one case an annual saving of 40 million USD could be realised if the berthing process can be improved by 3 hours. Through a survey we found that a significant part of the berth planning process is highly manual in many ports and terminals this is not ideal and allows for scope for significant improvements to be made.
We conclude that is it feasible to improve the berth planning process and a substantial financial gain can be achieved by doing so.
In this whitepaper we cover:
How changing from a manual process can bring significant benefits
How making changes to your berth planning can create large savings opportunities
How updating your existing system of berth planning can have far-reaching benefits
