Kaleris, KSSP carry out optimisation programme

KSSP, Kaleris collaborate on optimisation programme

Kerry Siam Seaport Limited (KSSP), a multi-purpose deep sea port in Laem Chabang, Thailand, has announced optimisation improvements in partnership with Kaleris.

The Navis N4 Terminal Operating System was optimised to reduce truck driving distances by 20 per cent and container rehandles by 10 per cent, significantly improving productivity and lowering carbon emissions.

The terminal launched the optimisation programme as KSSP’s annual volume steadily grew and exceeded one million TEU to ensure its operations would scale in the most efficient, sustainable and cost-effective way.

The Kaleris Optimization Services team worked closely with KSSP to identify improvement opportunities in yard strategy, terminal truck operations, and vessel planning. In addition, KSSP implemented advanced planning and optimisation software modules in the Navis N4 including, Quay Commander, Berth Window Manager, Expert Decking, Prime Route, and Autostow.

The reported benefits of the programme include:

  • Reduced unladen driving distance of terminal trucks by 20 per cent, creating an associated fuel savings of 190,000 litres per year.

  • Reduced container rehandling by 10 per cent and failure-to-deck events to almost zero.

  • Improved quay crane productivity by one point, providing accelerated service for customers.

  • Equipped yard planners with tools to manage the yard more strategically.

  • Enhanced collaboration with shipping line stowage coordinators, improving vessel and crane work plans.

  • Reduced drayage dwell time, creating a better experience for the KSSP trucking community.

“Kaleris Optimization Services generated important ROI for us, making it well worth the investment,” said Sirirat Srerattanamongkon, KSSP’s Director.

“Kaleris delivered unmatched operational knowledge alongside a specialised approach that considered the uniqueness of our terminal operations while also sharing industry best practices. The optimisation programme improved the way work and delivered tangible results.”

“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with KSSP and help them optimise terminal operations,” said Molly Harrison, COO at Kaleris.

“By tailoring our knowledge of global operating best practices to align with local requirements, we devised creative solutions to address KSSP’s distinct challenges and improve productivity. KSSP is well positioned to continue delivering the best service to its customers.”

Last summer, Terminal Darsena Toscana (TDT), Italy’s primary refrigerated cargo port, employed a new technology from Kaleris to eliminate rehandling moves.
