Arl Introduces Lashing Planner Software
Lashing Gang Planning software launched by ARL.
Tapping into the planned container moves and hatch moves for the quay cranes assigned to incoming vessels and applying rules for optimal lashing team assignments, the Lashing Planner create an optimized lashing team plan. The plan handle shifting of the lashing teams across vessel bays in operation as well as bays across vessels at the quay side, and result in reduced costs by cutting the overall lashing team requirement by at least 15-20%.
The ARL Lashing Planner is currently being tested in a major Middle Eastern terminal, who are validating that the Lashing Planner successfully resolves planning challenges with terminal planners, responsible for stevedore planning including assigning lashers, dowelmen and conemen.

ARL’s Singapore based director and CEO, René Bendt, states: "Planning of lashers is an often overlooked area of resource utilization in a terminal, however, the potential for increasing the lashing teams’ productivity handling more vessel bays and more vessels with the same lashing teams, whether harvested directly by the terminal operator or via a sub-contractor, is definitely there”.
ARL have added a ROI calculator to their Lashing Planner portal, http://arl-shipping.com/
