Improving Port Terminal Operations through Information Sharing

Abstract : In modern industry there are well defined methods for planning and optimising the efficiency of the production. However, when looking at supply chain operations there are often problems with lack of communication and planning between nodes. By not communicating the risk of creating non-value adding work also increases as the organisations becomes less synchronised. Therefore the focus in this paper is on how information can improve the performance of a container terminal. It was found that information relating to the containers is currently not widely used. Further it was found that there are improvements to be found in terms of reducing non-value adding activities by utilising information sharing.
