African Ports Without Quay Cranes Work In Real-time With Arl-shipping.com's Crane Executor
Stevedores at East and West Africa ports handle port calls with vessels’ own gear, log the discharged and loaded containers with the Sea Side Crane Executor app from arl-shipping.com, pass handling confirmations to the shipping line.

Provided that the shipping line is capable of interacting by EDI, the local stevedore only need to invest in handheld devices with net connectivity (3G, WiFi etc), and is then able to manage the discharge and loading operation in real time from the quayside; no local IT systems are required, as the handhelds interact with arl-shipping.com’
In preparation of the port call, the shipping line’s discharge and load instructions, as well as bayplan with onboard containers, are received and made available on the touch screen operated handheld devices used in the port. The stevedores confirm the planned handlings in real-time with a minimum of typing, adhering to logical validations safeguarding for example that containers are only loaded in empty and available slots.
As a side benefit of using the Crane Executor cloud app, the current status of the handling operation is available in near-real-time for stevedore and liner management throughout the vessel port call 24/7, and post-call handling recaps for invoicing or statistics are automatically generated.
