CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal digitalises berth data sharing

CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal (CSPADT) has agreed a deal to implement the Portchain Connect system to increase the quality and speed of its berth alignment through digital handshakes and data sharing with shipping lines.

Located in Khalifa Port, Abu Dhabi, CSPADT commenced operations in December 2018 and is the first overseas semi-automated greenfield container terminal for China’s state-owned COSCO SHIPPING Ports, operating as a joint venture with Abu Dhabi Ports Group.

The new software will allow the terminal to receive real-time schedule and move count updates directly from carrier systems, enabling for direct responses and counterproposals to align the vessel schedule with the terminal berth plan.

Portchain Connect also provides an overview of all vessel calls and supports the digital transfer of berthing information to relevant parties, removing issues associated with manual communication to improve schedule reliability.

“We are excited to work with CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal and help them drive efficiencies in their berth alignment process by facilitating streamlined data exchange,” said Thor Thorup, CCO of Portchain.

“We look forward to continuing our collaboration and continuously improving the platform based on user feedback.”
