Just-in-time port calls for sustainability: Digitalization as the path towards UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

Portchain’s contribution

Just-In-Time (JIT) arrivals allow vessels to optimize speed during their voyage to arrive at port without any waiting time. The latest study released by the IMO, calculates the potential fuel consumption and CO2 emissions reduction from the effective implementation of JIT for container shipping to 5.9% when carrier and port align 24 hours prior to arrival, and up to 14% when aligned when the vessel leaves the previous port. Through Portchain, carriers and terminals can improve collaboration, control data sharing and utilize alignment solutions to support JIT arrivals.

The network of the future

The global container shipping industry is significantly challenged with congestion, continuous disruptions from global events and constant vessel delays.

Vessel scheduling and berth planning operations have become increasingly complex, with many of the traditional tools such as proforma plans becoming unreliable.

At Portchain, we believe carriers and terminals can achieve predictable and reliable operations through increased collaboration and data sharing. With better tooling they can leverage the power of standardized data and predictive analytics which the industry has yet to take full advantage of.

We are Portchain. Come join your partners on the network!
