Portchain has won a contract from the Tanger Alliance, Morocco, a greenfield terminal that went live on Jan 1 2021, to implement its Berth Optimization Engine, which improves berth operations and enables terminal customers to monitor berth status in real time.
Portchain’s Berth Optimization Engine has digitised the planning process and enabled optimized resource allocation. Portchain helps planning staff evaluate different scenarios and their KPIs to select the most cost-effective plan and quickly respond to new customer information, increasing the reliability and predictability of the plan.
The AI-driven optimization software further assists planning staff by automating resource allocation for all vessels simultaneously. This assists the planning staff in finding the optimal plan to increase capacity or reduce operational costs.
Thor Thorup, CCO of Portchain, noted: “We are proud to be a part of Tanger Alliance’s digitization journey and to have supported them from terminal go-live.
“We are excited to help Tanger Alliance realize their plans to optimize their operations and provide a better customer experience. We look forward to continuing our collaboration to pioneer new ways of creating value for terminal operators and carriers alike”
