QTerminals has announced it will join the Portchain Connect network to enhance the quality and speed of Hamad Port berth alignment.
Portchain Connect reportedly allows Hamad Port to get real-time schedule and move count updates directly from carrier systems, allowing them to immediately reply and counter-propose in order to align the vessel schedule with the terminal berth plan.
According to Portchain Connect, the system also streamlines the flow of schedule data to shorten the time to align the berthing window.
The platform allows terminals and carriers to share and receive quality data and reduce delays in information transmission.
Thor Thorup, CCO & Co-Founder at Portchain, said: “We are excited to work with QTerminals and help them drive efficiencies in their berth alignment process by facilitating streamlined data exchange for their Hamad Port operations.
“We look forward to continuing our collaboration and continuously improving the platform based on user feedback.”
