AI-enhanced vessel loading sequence prediction

Manual vessel load sequencing was time-consuming and prone to inefficiency, often leading to non-compliant container placements and unnecessary yard reshuffles.

Time-labor reduction
Reduces time and labor for vessel load planning.
Reshuffle minimization
Minimizes unproductive yard reshuffles, enhancing efficiency.

Designing the load sequence for a vessel at a container terminal is a highly labor-intensive task. It involves ensuring that containers are placed on the vessel in compliance with specific vessel constraints. Simultaneously, efforts are made to prevent unproductive moves in the yard, known as reshuffles.

The forecasting method is employed to predict the sequence in which containers will be loaded during unloading from the initial vessel for transshipment.

AI-assisted workload forecasting for yard blocks

Before AI, estimating yard block workloads was a guessing game, resulting in planning inaccuracies and inefficient container storage and retrieval.

Planning precision
Improves planning accuracy for container storage and retrieval.
Task management
Enables better task distribution management over time.

The transhipment stacking strategy considers the anticipated workload within a designated block during a set timeframe, involving tasks such as storing or retrieving containers.

The importance of workload estimation lies in its ability to predict task distribution over time and blocks, facilitating efficient workload management.

However, the precise workload is uncertain during the planning phase. To address this uncertainty, machine learning techniques are employed to predict the workload accurately.

Prior to AI integration, assigning containers to optimal positions within a block was challenging, leading to inefficient ASC coordination and prolonged dwell times.

Positioning streamlining
Streamlines container positioning for operational efficiency.
ASC coordination
Facilitates efficient ASC coordination, reducing dwell times.

The AI system conducts an evaluation of different elements when a block is chosen, including TOS-related filters/segregations and predicted dwell time, in order to suggest the best position for each container.

The block allocation and position allocation models are computationally efficient and compatible with real-time data delivery (within a minute).

The proposed stacking strategy also takes into account efficient coordination between ASCs engaged in containers handling activities within the given block.

AI in predicting external truck traffic

Before employing AI, predicting external truck flows was imprecise, causing frequent bottlenecks and congestion around the terminal yard blocks.

Congestion reduction
Predicts external truck movements, reducing terminal congestion.
Yard planning
Enhances yard planning, improving workload distribution.

The goal in this AI is the forecasting of external truck movements and traffic patterns coming to a container terminal. 

This prediction is achieved by analyzing various information such as external truck visit historical data, vehicles booking system historical data, traffic information inside the terminal, weather conditions, and road infrastructure.

These predictions enable better and dynamic yard block planning, improving overall workload distribution efficiency over blocks and reducing congestion around the terminal yard blocks.

Predictive models are developed to estimate truck flow and anticipate potential bottlenecks or delays in areas surrounding the terminal yard blocks. The modeling process can also incorporate geolocation information within the yard, during the construction of predictive features.

AI-enabled dwell time estimation

The inability to accurately predict container dwell times in the terminal previously led to inefficient use of mixed-purpose yard blocks and operational delays.

Yard efficiency
Increases efficiency in mixed-purpose yard block usage.
Delay reduction
Reduces operational delays through accurate dwell time predictions.

Dwell time is the period that a container spends within a container terminal in one or more terminal stacks. It is a crucial factor influencing the efficiency and overall performance of maritime logistics operations.

Dwell time predictions are used to estimate the workload distribution over mixed-purpose yard blocks.

The container dwell time predictions, vessel load sequences and workload per yard block benefit from incorporating some or all of the following data as predictive features:

  • Container Cycle Data
  • Gate Transaction Data
  • Manifest Data
  • Customs Clearance data
  • TOS Rules and related data
  • Equipment Availability
  • General Stowage Plan

You still have a question about our Vehicle Booking System?

This deployment process is done in 3 main steps.

Phase 1 – Dual Operation:
Initially, you’ll continue operating your current Vehicle Booking System (VBS) while we deploy our new system. This phase ensures there is no disruption in your terminal’s operations. Our team will work closely with yours to set up the new VBS in parallel, focusing on integrating it seamlessly with your existing infrastructure.

Phase 2 – Hybrid Testing:
In this phase, both the old and new VBS will be operational concurrently. This ‘hybrid system’ allows us to conduct real-world testing of the new VBS with a select group of carriers. It’s a crucial step to ensure the new system functions as intended and to identify and resolve any potential issues. This phase also provides an opportunity for your staff and carriers to familiarize themselves with the new system without fully depending on it.

Phase 3 – Full Transition and Closure:
Once the new VBS is thoroughly tested and validated, we’ll transition all transporter activities to it. During this phase, the old VBS will be phased out. We ensure a smooth transition where all transporters are now using the new system effectively. Following the successful implementation, the old VBS will be closed. However, we will securely store all historical data from the old system to ensure that no critical information is lost and can be accessed if needed.

This phase marks the completion of the transition to the new, more efficient VBS, aligning with your terminal’s operational needs and future growth of your Smart Port.
