    Applying Port Call Optimisation in Practice


    To improve port call efficiencies, eliminate wasted berth time and to reduce emissions by vessels on approach and alongside seemed a pipe dream only five years ago. Pioneering ports are now bringing together nautical and supply chain players in their communities to share data, vessel approach and berth planning as well as orchestrating finely-tuned task itineraries by vessel service providers and authorities from the moment a vessel moors until she departs. Witness practical examples of how this is put in practice, and the lessons learnt moving forward from some of the most advanced port call optimization solution providers.
