Karl Xie, SCT Shekou Container Terminal’s IT Manager states “We are already up and running on WIFI-connected devices for our hatch clerks in part of our quay side and with ARL’s next software version also supporting logging of container damages and seal number input, we will scale up the infrastructure to cover the full quay side and harvest the benefits to the full extend for our terminal”. He continues “Our new graphical tool allow us to adjust plans much more dynamically as crane planning changes are directly available from the hatch clerks’ and quay crane drivers’ devices, and they don’t have to wait for us to physically re-distribute printed bayplans”.
The tool display step-by-step load and discharge work instructions within the graphical bay plan and automatically refresh changes to the planned working sequence available electronically on the quayside, onboard and in-cabin, and refreshes the bay geometry on the screen. The graphical overview uses colour coding for the moves to be done and support interaction by point and touch, if a touch screen device is utilised.
The Quay Crane Visualiser is also tried out in North China’s largest terminal, QQCT Qingdao Qianwan Container Terminal, supporting a new revolutionary process re-engineering of the hatch clerk work, allowing the same hatch clerk team to handle all cranes for a vessel. Jessy Zhu, QQCT IT Manager states “The innovative process re-engineering we are putting in motion is substantial and we are happy to see that advanced software tools are already available off-the-shelve including integration to our TOS to support this process. ARL deployed the tool with us literally in a matter of days”.
