Haina International Terminals (HIT) has implemented Xvela’s Collaborative Berth Window Management application with the aim to reduce idle time, improve the use of berth space and increase the service quality for customers.
Xvela’s Collaborative Berth Window Management application provides real-time visibility and estimated time of arrival (ETA) values aligned with validated berth prospects.
The application enables carriers, terminals, agents and port authorities visibility into each other’s status thus enabling them to optimise their operations.
Armando Rivas, VP of operations at HIT, said: “With Xvela we will be able to allocate the resources to operate all the vessels in an efficient environment to boost both productivity and revenue.”
This will allow HIT to let local agents and line carriers know in advance whether it can receive vessels at a specific date and time and offer options for a better time to arrive.
The application aims to help avoid delays and extra costs and will allow HIT to better allocate and plan for resources at the terminal to maximise its assets and investments.
Connectivity with the Terminal Operating System (TOS) makes it possible to know in real time if there are any variations in the estimated times of completion for operations to enable collaborative decision-making in the event of overlaps with future operations or required adjustments.
Ocean carriers will also be able to determine their navigation routes and speed required by their vessels, thus optimising fuel consumption.
