Port of Tanjung Pelepas moves to AI-powered management system

The Port of Tanjung Pelepas in Malaysia, one of the busiest ports in the world, has entered into an agreement to deploy Innovez One’s AI-powered Port Management Information System (PMIS) to improve efficiency and optimise scheduling.

Innovez One’s MarineM software will provide an interface where agents can register their vessels and order services to support arrivals such as supplies, logistics and marine services.

Using algorithms powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, its planning module will automatically manage schedules and dispatch resources, assigning pilots and tugs to various jobs and handling the logistics required to transport pilots to boarding grounds.

The system is able to instantly reallocate resources if a vessel’s ETA changes, helping to reduce waiting times and congestion. Agents can monitor the status of their orders in real time and automate their billing process, while a live map of vessel movements is also included.

“Digitalisation is absolutely vital for ports like ours and is the way of the future, as shipping transports the world’s economy and is expected to grow even further in decades to come,” said Joe Schofield, Chief Operating Officer at the Port of Tanjung Pelepas.

“Thanks to artificial intelligence and machine learning, we will reach new heights in terms of efficiency, which will help us become even more competitive on the global stage. Most importantly, this will translate into a better and faster service for our clients and visiting vessels, and a more modern work environment for our employees.”

The MarineM system is expected be up and running by the third quarter of 2022.
