CyberLogitec recognized as the top 50 Companies to watch in 2021 by The CEO Views
[This article was originally published at theceoviews.com]CyberLogitec was established in 2000, but the company’s experience in the industry dates back to the 1970s where its solutions were initially developed to solve the needs of a large South Korean shipping group, which it was once a part  of. In 2000, the company’s strong solutions and development capability led to a decision to spin-off CyberLogitec and promote its solutions commercially to players in the international maritime, ports, and logistics space. The organization  delivered its first TOS (Terminal Operating System) in that year and has been steadily growing in its solution suite to  cover the needs of maritime, port, and logistics companies throughout the globe ever since. CyberLogitec now counts  more than 150 companies as its customers worldwide. In 2017, noting the global footprint the company had amassed and to service  the significant new partnership they had entered into with the shipping giant ONE, the group established CyberLogitec Global as its  Global Commercial Headquarters in Singapore. The location chosen for its reputation as a gateway to global markets and one of  the most important maritime hubs in the world. CyberLogitec has been recognized as one of the 50  Innovative Companies of the year 2021 and some may  say this was a long time coming. For more than two  decades, CyberLogitec has worked with shipping lines,  terminals, and logistics providers to optimize their  business operations and processes through flexible,  end-to-end solutions and business consulting services.  “Unlike many other providers to the industry, CyberLogitec not only brings the technical know-how but  backs it up with rich experience working within the industry  ensuring we understand our customer’s needs from the  perspective of their business,” said Tevin Hyung-Chol Choi, MD of CyberLogitec Global. Over the years,  CyberLogitec has continually worked to understand the  evolving needs of their customers and refine their product  offerings to meet those needs. This has required employing advanced technologies to stay ahead of the  curve. Nowadays, the latest technologies such as  machine learning and IoT integration are incorporated into  CyberLogitec’s proprietary heuristic engine that powers  many of the features in its OPUS range of products. CyberLogitec has proven to be a pioneer in the industry,  helping their customers overcome challenges and hurdles they face running large, complex businesses. Terminal  and Maritime operations are extremely data-driven.  Hence the company aims to tackle efficiency through  integrated solutions designed to unlock the value of the  data the business creates to minimize manual labor or  work duplications and algorithmically plan more effective  operations. On top of the features expected within a  conventional TOS, its solutions can help customers run  unstructured document analysis, ensure operations  throughout the terminal are running at optimal efficiency,and proactively track KPIs to determine and deal with  process leakages. These features are coupled with its  commitment to meet and exceed expectations through  reliable service delivery, by meeting deadlines and  adding value to their partners through comprehensive consultancy services. CyberLogitec solutions can also  automate both simple and complex tasks faced by  terminals such as Advanced Yard Planning (AYP) which  automates yard planning and identifies the most suitable locations for cargo, and Advanced Housekeeping (AHK)  which ensures the yard is kept orderly based on the most  efficient use of terminal assets and with minimal manual  interference. With its innovative platforms such as OPUS  Terminal, the organization is confident in helping  terminals reach their full business potential in digitizing  operations for its continued success. CyberLogitec and its team are focused on future  innovation. The company is constantly working to integrate emerging technologies such as blockchain and  artificial intelligence into its offerings. In terms of internal expansion, CyberLogitec already has a presence in all  the major global business hubs. Its location in Singapore  is a strategic one too, as the Republic has a high  concentration of shipping lines, feeders, bulkers, and logistics firms, which earned its recognition as a leading  maritime nation. CyberLogitec has recently launched two new divisions dedicated to the advancement of digital smart ports. Its  TOS is enhanced with AI technology using IoT inputs and predictive analysis of collected data.These technologies  provide greater visibility of patterns in day-to-day  operations, identify potential safety concerns or  downtime proactively, and ultimately lead to better  planning with the aid of detailed predictions which will  not only bring greater efficiency but also help terminals  align to digital standards and increase collaboration  between various parties within the industry. CYBERLOGITEC AIMS TO TACKLE EFFICIENCY THROUGH INTEGRATED ADVANCED SOLUTIONS DESIGNED TO UNLOCK  THE VALUE OF THAT DATA TO MINIMIZE MANUAL LABOR OR WORK DUPLICATIONS. CyberLogitec has proved successful in increasing  productivity levels in the industry and helping their clients  come out of any challenge stronger. One recent example  is the partnership with The Apical Group, an edible-oils  manufacturer in Indonesia, to implement OPUS Terminal  and its latest liquid bulk features at their terminal in Balikpapan. Through the project, the port operator has  been able to speed up decision making using real-time  operating data instead of traditional manual methods of  managing jetty operations and checking valves– a much more time-consuming and resource-intensive approach. CyberLogitec was selected as the best partner to help  them with supply chain traceability,as well as ensuring  that operations can be performed at peak efficiency.  Experience has shown that the OPUS Terminal TOS can be the catalyst to boost overall productivity and  efficiency for CyberLogitec’s customers while  contributing towards the customer’s drive for a more sustainable ecosystem.This year the organization has also implemented OPUS Terminal at Super Terminais in  Manaus Brazil.

CyberLogitec recognized as the top 50 Companies to watch in 2021 by The CEO Views
[This article was originally published at theceoviews.com]CyberLogitec was established in 2000, but the company’s experience in the industry dates back to the 1970s where its solutions were initially developed to solve the needs of a large South Korean shipping group, which it was once a part  of. In 2000, the company’s strong solutions and development capability led to a decision to spin-off CyberLogitec and promote its solutions commercially to players in the international maritime, ports, and logistics space. The organization  delivered its first TOS (Terminal Operating System) in that year and has been steadily growing in its solution suite to  cover the needs of maritime, port, and logistics companies throughout the globe ever since. CyberLogitec now counts  more than 150 companies as its customers worldwide. In 2017, noting the global footprint the company had amassed and to service  the significant new partnership they had entered into with the shipping giant ONE, the group established CyberLogitec Global as its  Global Commercial Headquarters in Singapore. The location chosen for its reputation as a gateway to global markets and one of  the most important maritime hubs in the world. CyberLogitec has been recognized as one of the 50  Innovative Companies of the year 2021 and some may  say this was a long time coming. For more than two  decades, CyberLogitec has worked with shipping lines,  terminals, and logistics providers to optimize their  business operations and processes through flexible,  end-to-end solutions and business consulting services.  “Unlike many other providers to the industry, CyberLogitec not only brings the technical know-how but  backs it up with rich experience working within the industry  ensuring we understand our customer’s needs from the  perspective of their business,” said Tevin Hyung-Chol Choi, MD of CyberLogitec Global. Over the years,  CyberLogitec has continually worked to understand the  evolving needs of their customers and refine their product  offerings to meet those needs. This has required employing advanced technologies to stay ahead of the  curve. Nowadays, the latest technologies such as  machine learning and IoT integration are incorporated into  CyberLogitec’s proprietary heuristic engine that powers  many of the features in its OPUS range of products. CyberLogitec has proven to be a pioneer in the industry,  helping their customers overcome challenges and hurdles they face running large, complex businesses. Terminal  and Maritime operations are extremely data-driven.  Hence the company aims to tackle efficiency through  integrated solutions designed to unlock the value of the  data the business creates to minimize manual labor or  work duplications and algorithmically plan more effective  operations. On top of the features expected within a  conventional TOS, its solutions can help customers run  unstructured document analysis, ensure operations  throughout the terminal are running at optimal efficiency,and proactively track KPIs to determine and deal with  process leakages. These features are coupled with its  commitment to meet and exceed expectations through  reliable service delivery, by meeting deadlines and  adding value to their partners through comprehensive consultancy services. CyberLogitec solutions can also  automate both simple and complex tasks faced by  terminals such as Advanced Yard Planning (AYP) which  automates yard planning and identifies the most suitable locations for cargo, and Advanced Housekeeping (AHK)  which ensures the yard is kept orderly based on the most  efficient use of terminal assets and with minimal manual  interference. With its innovative platforms such as OPUS  Terminal, the organization is confident in helping  terminals reach their full business potential in digitizing  operations for its continued success. CyberLogitec and its team are focused on future  innovation. The company is constantly working to integrate emerging technologies such as blockchain and  artificial intelligence into its offerings. In terms of internal expansion, CyberLogitec already has a presence in all  the major global business hubs. Its location in Singapore  is a strategic one too, as the Republic has a high  concentration of shipping lines, feeders, bulkers, and logistics firms, which earned its recognition as a leading  maritime nation. CyberLogitec has recently launched two new divisions dedicated to the advancement of digital smart ports. Its  TOS is enhanced with AI technology using IoT inputs and predictive analysis of collected data.These technologies  provide greater visibility of patterns in day-to-day  operations, identify potential safety concerns or  downtime proactively, and ultimately lead to better  planning with the aid of detailed predictions which will  not only bring greater efficiency but also help terminals  align to digital standards and increase collaboration  between various parties within the industry. CYBERLOGITEC AIMS TO TACKLE EFFICIENCY THROUGH INTEGRATED ADVANCED SOLUTIONS DESIGNED TO UNLOCK  THE VALUE OF THAT DATA TO MINIMIZE MANUAL LABOR OR WORK DUPLICATIONS. CyberLogitec has proved successful in increasing  productivity levels in the industry and helping their clients  come out of any challenge stronger. One recent example  is the partnership with The Apical Group, an edible-oils  manufacturer in Indonesia, to implement OPUS Terminal  and its latest liquid bulk features at their terminal in Balikpapan. Through the project, the port operator has  been able to speed up decision making using real-time  operating data instead of traditional manual methods of  managing jetty operations and checking valves– a much more time-consuming and resource-intensive approach. CyberLogitec was selected as the best partner to help  them with supply chain traceability,as well as ensuring  that operations can be performed at peak efficiency.  Experience has shown that the OPUS Terminal TOS can be the catalyst to boost overall productivity and  efficiency for CyberLogitec’s customers while  contributing towards the customer’s drive for a more sustainable ecosystem.This year the organization has also implemented OPUS Terminal at Super Terminais in  Manaus Brazil. A great example of a remote  implementation with the project team based in Asia, it is  helping them boost productivity, improve the accuracy of  container inventory, and achieve higher overall  operational efficiency with the help of the advanced  container terminal features in OPUS Terminal. The  company also ensures the current customers are  continually cared for. Last year, it also helped a South Korean terminal operator to upgrade to its latest version of OPUS Terminal originally implemented in 2010. After  this TOS upgrade, the client has been operating stably,  improving the efficiency and convenience of operations  for operators. With these recent improvements in  conventional features of OPUS terminal combined with  Advanced Modules, the organization has implemented  and optimized processes through its Remote Go-Live  approach to ensure the safety of employees and associates during this pandemic which ensures the  clients’ timelines are met while operational disruptions  are kept to a minimum in spite of the ongoing travel  restrictions and social distancing guidelines. CyberLogitec’s proven in-depth industry knowledge,experience and innovation has led towards its position  as a leading provider of tech solutions covering the entire  transportation network. Today, its focus on TOS solutions  helps small ports bridge the efficiency gap to their larger  peers and prepares them for making the smart port  transition through advanced and future-proof features.  The industry is constantly changing and the past year  has been no different in that regard. CyberLogitec  continues to challenge itself to reinvent and be ready for  the new normal.

In today’s world, visibility facilitates real-time awareness and acute foresight. In addition to empowering terminals with the ability to respond swiftly to any situations, whether to fix the problem or to seize an opportunity, visibility can also be used to predict outcomes and avert downtime or potential pain points, thus boosting daily operations.In the terminal business, where yard activities and cargo management are complex and dynamic, full visibility is critical, whether in 2D or 3D. For instance, smart Terminal Operating System (TOS) gives a clear view of cargo properties while advanced zoom functions provide important data that may be easily overlooked by the human eyes.Where terminals once operated by manual entries, it is no longer sustainable in today’s market. Visibility of yard operations is now an essential requirement to stay aligned with the rest of the industry, and there are two vital steps to reach operational transparencies.The First StepThe first thing to consider is standardization — streamline operational processes, consolidate digital systems, centralized data sharing and automate core workflows.Adopting standardization enables terminals to optimize real-time work. Standardization will allow insights into daily operational processes to monitor disruptions or exceptions, track cargo locations, optimize shipping schedules and eventually build customer service. Information that points to inefficiencies can be quickly picked up to avoid potential disruptions as they are flagged out to operations personnel. This will minimize unnecessary costs and schedule delays, and effectively manage carbon footprint.The Next StepAs the global dependency on information sharing grows rapidly, therein lies the next step to develop best practices — engaging technology.Businesses can easily standardize and integrate all processes to coordinate workflows, from bookings, inventory shipping and receiving to customs filing, accounting and performance reporting. Through a single-point platform, the solution supports process flexibility, improves movement visibility and reduces costs.Digital transformation is not just about technology, artificial intelligence and automation. It will bring changes and new challenges not only to the structure but also the culture of the organization. Naturally, security and privacy concerns will also be of high priority as they affect the throughput and integrity of the business.So how can companies safely and effectively harness the benefits of technology?Engage industry experts and solution consultants. Get an operational health check and recommendations tailored for your unique business operations.While change is inevitable, it should not be intimidating. With the right knowledge, suitable technology, and a positive mindset, these are tools that will help to ease the transition of change and propel business operations towards manifold returns on investment.Find out more about CyberLogitec’s terminal operating system – OPUS Terminal today!

Transform into Smart Port for the Post-pandemic World
The ‘new normal’ of terminal operations favors Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) that capitalize on web-based technology, especially in looking at a post-Covid-19 world.An Internet-enabled TOS like OPUS Terminal M facilitates terminals to shift away from the traditional, on-site hosted environment to cloud-based, SaaS offering. In so doing, terminals can spread out their IT expenditure and concentrate the investments towards the infrastructural assets needed for terminal operations. Furthermore, by unlocking the on-site constraint, terminals can now optimize on managing multiple sites via a single remote control center, lessening the reliance on rostering physical personnel presence to yield greater operational productivity & efficiency. The pandemic has been a timely awakening to terminals, and a new paradigm mindset is needed towards how a TOS and a terminal can be operated.OPUS Terminal M is a true multipurpose TOS that can handle all types of cargo operations – from containers to general cargo, bulk (solid and liquid) to RORO. The TOS can support multiple terminals in one license, where each terminal can operate independently. OPUS Terminal M can also be configured for seaports, river ports and inland terminals as well.With 3D visualization, OPUS Terminal M allows terminals to view their yard situation from various angles and run filters to group containers and cargo according to pre-set criteria.The OPUS Terminal M comes with an Advanced Vessel Planning (AVP) feature for container vessels – for optimising load/discharge plans, automating stowage planning, and maximising quay cranes deployment and cargo handling productivity. Vessel planners have the option to prepare several stowage plans for a single vessel after which a built-in evaluator can be used to identify which plan pattern can result in the most efficient operations.Other features of the integrated terminal operating solution include truck pooling to optimise truck assignments by considering the distance, waiting time, RTG workload and job priorities, a built-in gate appointment system, and an EDI translator with Excel upload capability.OPUS Terminal M is able to support all non-containerized cargo types, including associated vessel definitions and cargo storage options. Work sequences for bulk vessels can be defined in detail, including the setup of gangs with required equipment and human resources. Timesheets can be made available on tablets, resulting in real-time updates to vessel operations.Cargo storage can be easily set up, including open yards, warehouses, tanks and silos. OPUS Terminal M can interface with the SCADA systems of bulk handling systems to get real-time information on cargo flow and tank utilization.OPUS Terminal M’s rail functionality is evolving to allow for the planning of discharge and loading of cargo to and from rail cars.Another CyberLogitec’s product, Eagle Eye, is a data visualisation and IoT platform that can work with any TOS.Eagle Eye provides real-time assets monitoring, tracking and control, with its full-fledged Internet of Things (IoT) platform that supports varied RTLS (real-time location system) protocols such as DGPS, UWB and RFID.Users can benefit from automated operations, optimised job-stepping and process handover, as well as auto-capture and analysis of real-time location and movement of terminal equipment and assets to enable real-time analysis of operational bottlenecks and resources availability.The Eagle Eye is also fully compatible by integration with autonomous vehicles and equipment, with full 2D and 3D visualisation (digital twin) to provide virtual terminal visibility without the line-of-sight limitations of CCTVs.The safety and risk management via personnel and equipment metrics are in place to detect risks of collisions, straying out of zone, equipment breakdowns, and so forth.(This article was first published on Seatrade Maritime News)

Working in Terminals During the Pandemic
The awareness of establishing and enforcing workplace health and safety practices has increased exponentially in the light of the COVID-19 outbreak, and it has become an acknowledged reality that this long-drawn pandemic has globally disrupted and redefined the work environment and work processes. Much of today’s port & terminal operations still require on-the ground personnel to manage and operate their operations control room, operate yard & berth equipment. While some ports and terminals may have responded well to the new normal, many are in fact still coming to terms with the challenges with social distancing and manpower resource rostering for alternating split work teams. Therefore, port & terminal operators will now have to more forcefully pursue measures to reengineer their operations by looking deeper into digitalisation of their operations.The current situation favours Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) that break away from traditional on-site, client/server installations, instead to capitalise on web-based technology. By hosting a cloud-based TOS that is accessible via browsers on laptops and mobile devices, greater workforce mobility and infrastructure resilience can be achieved.The New Normal of Manpower in Terminal OperationsWhile there are increasing evidence of automation of port operations to overcome reliance on manual operations, the technology for full automonous vehicles/equipment, and the infrastructural costs involved may still put it out of reach for many ports. Hence undeniably manual labour is still a significant factor to terminals operations, from operating container handling equipment and driving trucks, to physically removing cargo from containers.For such skill sets that require human resources to be physically on-site, a dynamic system for rostering of personnel would be very useful. Such a system would consider staff’s qualification, availability and previous rostering cycle to equitably distribute the terminal’s expected workload among employees. Teams can be setup so that the same people work in the same shifts on a regular basis, minimizing interaction between those who belong to other teams. In addition, terminals can space out break periods so that employees will not need to linger in big groups during meal times.For the protection of the workforce from Covid-19, terminals should adopt processes that would minimize contact between personnel and possible sources of infection like surfaces prone to human touch. These can range from simple face masks and gloves to full-blown protective gear depending on the situation. Stocks of these items should be managed effectively to enhance employee’s confidence that they are safe in the workplace. Disinfecting terminal equipment cabins should be a routine activity to ensure the safety of drivers and operators working in a closed environment. Likewise, devices like vehicle mounted terminals (VMT) and mobile devices (handheld terminals) should be disinfected before every change of user (shift change or any other occasion).Technologies are now available to automatically monitor the number people present in a certain area and these can be used to remind employees to maintain a minimum distance from one another. Similar systems can detect when personnel are not wearing safety vests, helmets and even face masks.Remote Work as a New Normal for TerminalsGiven that physical presence is required for the movement of cargo and containers, there is however a segment of the terminal’s workforce that can be empowered to work remotely. These include back office personnel – finance and administration, documentation, billing and even key operational roles like vessel and yard planners.A cloud-based TOS would fit perfectly in a situation where personnel are forced to work remotely in the interest of maintaining social distancing. TOS functions accessed via browsers practically allow terminal personnel to work anywhere, provided an adequate security setup is in place.In addition, for terminal operating companies that run multiple sites, personnel that work remotely can be shared across facilities, as they are unhindered by limitations set by physical presence. In this case terminal operators not only realize savings in manpower and other resources, the employees are also spared from having to contend with congestion in public transport and even in the workplace.Even if the remote workforce is not shared between terminals in a multi-facility setup, personnel from different locations can play the role of backup to each other, resulting in a robust organizational setup where terminals can continue to operate in case the workforce in one site becomes infected.ConclusionThe path to the post-Covid world will be a prolonged process, which will not be without setbacks or uncertainties along the way. As the industry progresses into the new normal, it needs to go beyond the typical way of operational manpower rostering to adhere to good workplace safety and health practices. The fact is that the future of terminal operating solution is already within reach, and along with it, a new season of modifying human resource and operational policies that may, in the long-run, operate vastly different from what people are typically used to.An Opinion Piece by Carlo M.

Entering a New Season: The Real Value of Digitalization
Covid-19’s wide-scale human quarantine and borders closure across countries has a devastating effect on the global economy and severely disrupted all international trade.  In a mere quarter between OCED’s Interim Economic Outlook report for Mar and Jun 2020, their forecast of global growth was first halved to 1.5% and subsequently to -13%.  In China alone, for the two months of Jan-Feb’2020, China’s Ministry of Transport reported a drop of 10.6% in container handling volume for entire China.  A similar scene unfolded at Long Beach, California, with Jun 2020 registering a 10% slowdown in handled volume, and its imports coming in 14% lower. Terminal operators and shipping companies are scrambling to cope with excess idle equipment and assets, while maximizing ‘healthy’ personnel deployment to operate the limited resources to ensure that global trade continues and essential food supplies, consumables, and medical supplies can reach the masses.Before the pandemic, the maritime sector was still reeling from the shift in the geopolitical and geo-economic status quo arising from the fallout from the Sino-US trade disputes.  Manufacturing hubs relocate to alternative venues like Vietnam, and China factories search for alternative demand markets.  The traditional norms of demand and supply markets were redefined.  Coupled with the surge in eCommerce and the more advanced pace of digitalization in the logistics and B-to-C space has raised the expectations of consumers on shipment efficiency and visibility.  Terminal operators and shipping carriers recognize more than ever the need not just for their internal digital transformation but as well for the broader digitalization of the entire supply chain.  As cliché as it may sound, we are only as strong as our weakest link.When Push Becomes a Shove to the Shipping and Terminal SectorsWith approximately 90% of world trade still handled by the maritime industry, terminal operators and shipping carriers will continue to have a critical impact on the integrated supply chain of today’s economy, which is in vital need of a digital ecosystem that facilitates seamless online transactions.  In this regard, the culmination of recent events has intensified the surge in the application of technology on business collaboration, necessitating terminals to optimize allocation and utilization of facilities and assets. At the same time, carriers maximize their shipping routes and vessel deployment to best-use their capacity in tandem.The increasing recognition of the need for connectivity within the supply chain is quickly redefining the status quo as these stakeholders attempt to build up their proprietary end-to-end connectivity to meet the expectations of consumers and cargo owners.  As witnessed from the spate of mergers and acquisitions across the supply chain, for example, DP Worlds’ wave of purchasing feeder operators (Unifeeder & Feedertech) and CMA-CGM’s acquisition of CEVA Logistics, etc., highlights the growing awareness of the need for a seamless supply chain integration. So what better way than to have it all under one roof?Besides M&A, there is also a proliferation of commercially-influenced platforms such as TradeLens, Calista, NYSHEX, etc. which extended the connectivity trend towards collaboration as supply chain stakeholders start to define and shape their interpretation of the “essential ecosystem” for the industry.  A pitfall with these platforms is that they do not represent the entire community and has limited business scope, resulting in functional and procedural overlaps that fuels confusion and frustration to the stakeholders who grapple with needing to subscribe to several, if not all of these platforms.These challenging times created the critical impetus for businesses to review their digital transformation blueprint, to reassess their adoption of technology and realign it with ensuring business resilience.  It is a case of either ride the digital wave or be drowned out by it.Is Technology the Silver Bullet?Besides connectivity and collaboration, shipping and terminal players have also been accelerating their adoption of automation, from the deployment of autonomous vehicles to replace manual operations to robotic process automation (RPA) or chatbots to remove & reduce manual interactions with application systems.Qingdao launched China’s first fully automated terminal operations in 2017 with a projection to handle up to 17mil TEU/year has since then registered 55% of operations efficiency and costs reduction of 48%.  Singapore PSA’s upcoming Tuas Mega Port expected to handle up to 65mil TEU/year when fully operational by 2040, built with heavy reliance on autonomous equipment, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI).  With automation, operations become more resilient to disruptions arising from human-operations, circumventing labor issues, and health pandemic.With the surge in connectivity and automation, the urgency to have industrial or global standards is paramount to ensure that the digital landscape and ecosystem are still integral and congruent. Standards and protocols enable ease of data exchange within the supply chain and align the interpretation of the data while enforcing a strict regime on security.The recent much-publicized cases of cyber-attacks that crippled the business capacity of Maersk and MSC highlight the need for greater resilience and robust cybersecurity as we rely more on technology and digitalization.To avoid digitalization overlaps and misalignments, national-level support and industry-led initiatives will have to converge and form the foundation of a borderless ecosystem that incorporates industrial-wide standardization of messaging, processes, authentication, etc.Dawn of a New WorkforceIf there is a benefit gained from this pandemic, it is the adoption of telecommuting and remote workforce.  Businesses and enterprises which had initially doubted the suitability or practicality of it had either went belly-up during this period or survived by reinventing their business models and operational processes.  The proliferation of mobile applications and vehicle-mounted terminals has displaced the need for in-person contact for task assignments and instructions.With the advent of 5G, the boundaries and limits of telecommuting and remote workforce will be further redefined or even broken down.  Organizations will have to reassess how businesses will be run henceforth.  Terminals may no longer require a physical, on-site operations command center to manage each terminal. Instead of remote management via decentralized off-site command centers could oversee several terminals concurrently, which ensures greater operational resilience.  Shipping carriers that traditionally require documentation offices to transact with shippers, consignees for physical BLs issuance, DO collection, payments, etc., can now transmit & transact electronically with digital security features such as encryption, digital signatures, blockchain, etc.  Integrated & automated supply chain from fully-automated warehousing to drone delivery or autonomous trucks/rail/barge conveyance of cargo will encounter a reality shift to the logistics industry.A new chapter is beginning, and terminals and shipping carriers need to capitalize on these disruptive opportunities by incorporating digital transformation into their business strategies to gain a competitive edge.  A well-formulated digitalization roadmap must be infused with sound business policies and standards and aligned with their business goals and vision.Thought Leadership Article by Wai Mung L.

No Turning Back on Digitalization in Ports
As the world grapples with the devastation brought about by Covid-19, the role the shipping and logistics industry now plays is more critical. Global trade involving farm produce, commodities and even medical supplies are essential items that need to reach processing plants and even nations that require medical aid.It is now imperative that a port engages in digital data to drive collaboration, align activities, and make decisions that would improve vital processes across shipping operations. The recent emergence of the new normal defines how a forward-thinking port would desire to interact with various stakeholders and systems to drive engagement, share information and align processes. This creates a strong value proposition as industry players from shippers, truckers, terminals and liners will stand to benefit from new business values as the exchange of information directly contributes to their bottom line. Ports must be ready to utilize such shared data for operational clarity, predictability and good capacity utilization.Here are 3 key areas that I think will be needed to mitigate disruptions of such nature in future.AutomationReceiving details of cargo in a vessel becomes pre-emptive information for the port even before the vessel leaves the port of origin. And when it eventually berths, technologies can dynamically forecast and prioritize equipment and vehicle activities within the yard so that operations are well organized, saving costs and time.Real-time location monitoring technologies can transmit location information for operational staff within the confines of a control tower. Advanced systems can monitor the traveling speed of terminal vehicles and can send precautionary alerts to enhance overall safety. It can even identify the condition of the vehicle and send an alert to move the equipment into maintenance and repairs so to avoid unnecessary downtime. The list goes on.What is key to note is that automation is increasingly recognized as anchor points as digitally connected cargo handling equipment helps ports to increase their handling capacity by ensuring that cranes, forklifts and other equipment are well utilized while navigating cargo movements, well- maintained and are operating at peak levels, contributing to overall yard safety.CollaborationWhile collaboration has been a buzzword for some time, the maritime industry has long been working in silos, especially in less developed economies. This has brought with it a constellation of organizational problems and communication issues. Let’s not even get started on the high possibility of erroneous information and manual entry of data into outdated systems. Forwarders, carriers and terminals are now recognizing that by having a collaborative environment of carriers that sits on a shared digital platform goes a long way in delivering exponential benefits. They will now have access to a single instance of truth, which means they get to experience real-time visibility to accurate information and gain control of the present situation. have the will and influence to come together, a positive change to trust and sustainable growth ensues.AnalyticsDigital data is now able to generate new revenue streams and more service opportunities. These serves as actionable data as the liners, shippers, transport providers, warehouses, regulatory bodies and other parties come together to collaborate and enable transparency into status of goods and resources.The use of IoT can and should be maximized to reap the most benefits from the huge amount of data getting generated but remaining unprocessed in ports. Post operations, terminals can capitalize on big data to run analytics and aid in forecasting for future needs.Such standards for port operation can only be made possible if digital transformation is done collectively and the smart port truly enjoys high levels of accuracy, strong adherence to governmental regulations and efficiency in port operations.At the heart of today’s landscape, digitalization presents an opportunity to hasten the recovery of ports as the industry braces itself to enter into post Covid-19. Ports are no longer just physical hubs where cargo gets transported down the supply chain. Digitalization is rapidly transforming them to hubs of information where data gets exchanged to navigate through the same chain.The potential of embracing the concept of a thriving digital hub is not a forlorn option, but rather, the potential to harness opportunities are limitless. Herein lies the need to harness right platforms that will enable teams to access shared information in order to coordinate cargo movements and digitize their workflows in an organized manner. Herein also lies the industry’s motivation to keep up with the industry’s responsibility to keep cargo moving through the global trade waters regardless of its seemingly bleak prognosis. After all they say, change is a constant and its just a new way of doing business better, stronger.Opinion Piece by Carlo M.

The Ripple Effect of a Collaborative Platform
In the recent months, the Covid-19 pandemic has caused businesses across the globe to be severely affected. Demand for cargo shipments have dropped drastically. Companies are straddled with cargo but due to lack of logistics services, were unable to take receipt of them. To make matters worse, countries with closed borders have scheduled temporary closures of their ports forcing vessels to be diverted. Terminals that are still operational are left to work with a limited workforce and to cope with a heavily scaled-down version of terminal operations. In order to avoid unnecessary costs, they also have to consolidate their assets and equipment and optimize according to the reduced cargo capacity.The reality of today’s situation, is that we are seeing an unprecedented set of challenges that have arose at every step of the way. As a result, the global trade is severely crippled to say the least. With its disruption, supply chain companies are scrambling to idle their fleet of equipment to cope with dwindling demands. From idled trucks, to carriers’ blank sailings and cancelled flights, cargo owners and shippers who may still be able to remain in production are hard-pressed to source for available transportation alternatives.As a matter of fact, the pandemic surfaced underlying issues that has already plagued the supply chain industry for far too long, ie. the lack of end-to-end visibility & transparency due to silo functions in every segment of the supply chain. How then can today’s technology bring about collaborative support that will enable a more resilient supply chain that can dynamically adjust itself to mitigate disruptions.The effect of problem solvingProblems surmount as supply chain disruptions affected the maritime industry as a whole. Technology that allows a community of carriers to come together with shared information has far more benefits than merely improved communications. It provides timely information and brings clarity to carriers of alternative services when they are faced with port skips and blank sailings. As terminals collaborate with carriers to exchange timely schedules and berth window updates, the shared information that enable terminals to reallocate their limited workforce and resources to sustain operations.The effect of organizational relationshipsThe maritime industry has long been working in silos which may have risen as a result of a constellation of organizational problems and long drawn communication issues. When forwarders, carriers and terminals have the will and influence to come together, a positive change to trust and sustainable growth ensues. The collaborative ecosystem establishes a platform of trust that would enable stakeholders to exchange & share information that facilitates more proactive planning and allocation of resources, resulting in optimal work processes with minimized idling time. The continued success of the maritime sector is dependent on its ability to break down old mindsets of distrust that spawned the silos. Harnessing a platform of shared knowledge that collaborates across industries and geographies can promote responsible business.The effect of speed in response & efficiencyToday’s discerning customers expect greater shipment transparency and faster delivery. Supply chain collaboration platforms is the catalyst to fulfil such demands. Given the current global situation, prompt customer service and less in-transit waiting are almost impossible to achieve due to disjointed and untimely information. Immediate and accurate updates to terminal congestions or closures, slots availability through swaps, charters and joint operations help carriers make informed decisions and swiftly respond to customers. Ultimately, proactive customer service, terminal productivity, vessel schedules accuracy and space availability, will culminate in overall efficiency of the supply chain.Companies who are signed up with a shared platform will be able to leverage digitalization technologies to support vessel operations and exigencies. Having advanced operational efficiency and data sharing will trigger improvements to greater optimization for the terminal’s strategic advantage. By building a thriving ecosystem of partners at all levels, high standards of communication can be translated into growth opportunities for the industry.

Collaboration Imperatives in the Liner Business
In the recent year, as production bases relocate out of China as a result of the Trade War between the USA and China, the industry has seen a shift in the demand of cargo space to other emerging markets.  This capacity shift is now adding pressure on liners to rely more on carrier cooperation to maximise their load factor and resource utilisation. Given that maritime transport remains as the backbone of global trade, the traditional way carriers are used to operating at now has to change.Whether it is to thrive or survive, it is essential that carriers re-assess their current systems, re-align their business goals and capitalise on carrier collaboration by determining what data should be exchanged and how to utilise the shared data.Cooperating carriers typically exchange vessel schedules, special cargo applications and bayplans. Depending on the degree of partnership between carriers, the complexities behind the frequency and volume of slot arrangements intensifies. Engaging in a single instance of truth with joint vessel operating solution help carriers gain clarity over slot allocation and utilisation as well as to agree on final settlement.Carriers are now hard-pressed to reduce manual processes and to harness accurate tracking and communication as they establish joint operations and form alliances. It is therefore necessary that collaborative partnerships must be in place to have improved visibility for all stakeholders as they face customers’ increasing expectations for shipment reliability and timely visibility to their cargo’s status.Having a collaborative environment of carriers that sits on a shared digital platform delivers exponential benefits where manual and duplicated efforts can be minimised. Every collaborating partner will have access to a single instance of truth, which means they get to experience real-time visibility to accurate information. The resultant data then reinforces control of the present situation.With a polarised carrier market that further stiffens competition, the ocean trade ecosystem as a whole will stand to benefit by being able to collaborate and remain commercially competitive. To stay ahead of the game, digitalisation has to become more agile and responsive to the market demands. With the enablement of a common platform and more stakeholders coming onboard, it lends greater insights in planning for the future.

Smart Safety Technology: Elevating Actionable Visibility in the Yard
As handling volume increases along with growth of mega-vessels and the relentless pursuit for higher terminal productivity, operational risks increase in tandem. Where there is a lack of transparency, the chance of safety-related issues may arise and cause a spiralling effect to other issues that could eventually hurt terminal’s bottom-line and operational capacity. This can range from disruption of operations due to unplanned repairs, to liability claims for cargo and equipment damages or even worker’s injuries, and culminating to long term reputational damage.Empirical evidence indicates that a large percentage of safety incidents in terminals are due to human error that arise from non-compliant procedures to a lack in strict preventive efforts. Coupled with the fact that every container movement requires a long and diverse chain of process, maximizing visibility is paramount to achieving the highest standards of safety best practices in port operations. Innovative safety features that addresses tracking of equipment and cargo, to the condition of facilities contribute to resultant data captured in an accurate and timely manner.Elevating actionable visibilityBuilt on the concept of processing signals from sensors, the IoT (Internet of Things) has swiftly expanded its applicability in automating processes in the maritime and port industry. IoT, among other things, enables real-time transmission of terminal equipment positioning as well as yard and STS container crane movement metrics from the safe confines of the control room.Today’s technologies such as Eagle Eye has robust visualisation features that proactively supports yard operational activities as it picks up anomalies in the yard. This makes it easy to identify equipment or vehicle breakdowns, detect vehicle movement proximity and minimize collisions, fires or explosions, all from a safe distance. Crane operators are able to control container movements without needing to be on site.The ability to harness technological solutions has created new levels of worker safety and visibility for cargo and vehicular flow. With improved control, responsiveness and visibility, potential security risks or non-compliance with port safety and health regulations can be quickly identified and addressed.  Better safety for better businessThe maritime industry is increasingly recognizing the inevitability of digitalization in driving innovation for better safety technology. Applied wisely, the right software can help businesses raise their competitive advantage through enhanced yard safety and more strategic visibility across operations.

Next-Gen Carriers: 4 Critical Reasons To Collaborate
The emergence of new competitors and business models are making connectivity and collaboration a necessary best practice for carriers seeking to innovate and future-proof their operations.Why collaborate?Progressive shippers and carriers are increasingly realizing the value of collaboration in creating greater standardization and efficiency. In collaboration, every partner plays an important role in bringing value to the relationship. Effective communication across partners in shipping, enables a flow of knowledge across the supply chain that generates shared benefits and better long-term business sustainability for all.What are these shared benefits? Here are four we believe are most significant to the industry.Growth optimizationContinuous growth and optimization of commercial trade depends highly on the quality and efficiency of logistics management, which in turn depends on timely and accurate communication.The ocean supply chain involves many regulatory checks for customs compliance, restrictions and prohibitions. Complying with these requirements can be highly time-consuming and resource-intensive. Applications such as OPUS Logistics provide a connected platform that helps reduce ambiguity often encountered in these checks. This connectedness engenders greater response agility for better transparency and dynamism within the partner network.Real-time visibility of collaborated data also creates better synchronization in information exchange, reducing duplication and speeding up business cycles. Liner management solutions such as ALLEGRO deliver sophisticated revenue, cost reconciliation and exception management functions for greater visibility that can help carriers uncover trading opportunities previously encumbered by manual processes. Examples of these include removing inconsistent customer terms and conditions, or combining cargoes bound for destinations on a common route; both of which could result in significant value opportunities for carriers.InteroperabilityThe Digital Container Shipping Association has identified interoperability as a key element for the container shipping industry to transform and adapt to the digital era[1]. This involves moving away from silo-ed information management and embracing collaboration to enhance industry-wide solutions for standardizing and transmitting data.By encouraging cross-partner exchange of digital information, carriers can contribute towards these efforts of standardizing communication formats and data collection and analysis. Accurate data and common consensus create a single view of the collaborative elements in real-time for all parties in the network. The same data can also be integrated back to individual legacy systems to ensure seamless synchronisation. This ensures that critical data and information is communicated dynamically so shippers can obtain the latest vessel schedule changes and exceptions such as port skips to prevent operating with outdated information.StandardizationCollaboration in data exchange also enables the creation of standardized benchmarks for key performance indicator tracking. These standardized metrics and information can be leveraged in multiple ways.Without access to timely and accurate data, carriers could end up incurring additional costs in information and account reconciliation. The availability of these metrics enables carriers to partner with their stakeholders in reviewing existing processes for potential simplification and further automation. Secondly, the metrics can also be used to further industry-level discussions on improving best practices and driving greater harmonization in standards and systems within the maritime industry.SafetyTimely and accurate information-sharing is crucial for ensuring shipment safety throughout the passage of delivery. The shipping industry has long borne the brunt of losses in cargo, revenue, time and worst of all, lives, due to unscrupulous or ignorant shippers who fail to abide by regulations governing declaration of dangerous goods.When solutions are built to effectively preserve data integrity, applying blockchain can reinforce the immutable state of the data. Information that is to be shared and exchanged should reside on a platform that reinforces and preserves the distributed data. This provides an increased level of safety with regards to DG shipment details and cargo segregation.According to Rolf Habben Jansen, CEO of Hapag-Lloyd[2], the group is pushing very hard for cross-line collaboration where information on misdeclaration of goods should be shared between all the lines to promote better checking and if needed, bans on errant shippers to materially reduce the risk that something goes wrong at sea. This effort, along with industry-wide co-operation on e-VGM and IMDG regulations, could go a long way in preventing incidents such as the 2015 Tianjin hazardous goods explosion[3].Collaboration can also help mitigate risks associated with miscommunication, a major root cause of safety issues in port-side cargo management. Effective real-time dissemination of critical information via an effective collaboration platform for information-sharing and updates could possibly have helped prevent accidents such as the Port of Vancouver crane incident in January 2019[4].Enhanced visibility, optimization and sustainabilityToday’s smart carriers understand that collaboration done right brings significant and immense benefits, not just to themselves but for the broader industry. Strategic sharing and leveraging of similar technologies and procedures lowers the cost of technology adoption, empowers better operational visibility and creates better long-term sustainability.Leading the collaboration evolution in maritimeCyberLogitec is leading technological best practices in maritime with next-generation supply chain solutions that empower carriers to maximize collaboration and cooperation through the seamless exchange of real-time information.
