Portchain has announced CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal (CSPADT) will join the Portchain Connect network to simplify the berth alignment process with shipping lines.
CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal will reportedly use Portchain Connect to increase the quality and speed of its berth alignment with customers through digital handshakes and secure data sharing.
Portchain Connect will enable CSPADT to receive real-time schedule and move count updates directly from carrier systems and enables them to respond and counter-propose quickly, to align the vessel schedule with the terminal berth plan, reported Portchain.
The platform allows terminals and carriers to share and receive quality data and reduce delays in information transmission.
Portchain Connect also aims to provide users with an easy-to-use overview of all their vessel calls and ensure they can securely transfer berthing information, remove the costs associated with manual non-digitised communication, and align on berthing windows to improve schedule reliability.
Thor Thorup, CCO and Co-Founder of Portchain, said: “We are excited to work with CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal and help them drive efficiencies in their berth alignment process by facilitating streamlined data exchange. We look forward to continuing our collaboration and continuously improving the platform based on user feedback.”
