Enablers affecting Port Operators

Port Operators
Port operators refers to all actors operating in the port area e.g. terminals, stevedoring, pilots, port control and port authority. Also other stakeholders related to a port call such as disposal, ship chandler and tendering boats.
EN-051 – Improved contracts including clauses that establish terms for implementing right steaming.
Port call synchronization and green / right steaming requires a change in existing contract templates (charter parties) providing incentives for just-in-time approaches and establishing / communicating / committing to port of readiness.
EN-053 – Standardised Port Call Message Format
A standardised port call format is to be established supporting the ship-to-shore, shore-to-ship, and shore-to-shore interaction supporting port call synchronization.
EN-071 – Procedures for interaction b/w Service Providers
Development of procedures of how different actords in a PortCDM-setting will interact with each other. Process maps/templates , shared in the PCDM community.
EN-072 – Establishment of PortCDM council
Establishment of PortCDM council
EN-096 – Regulate (by contract) the possibility to use performance data (estimates and actuals) for evaluation purposes
The system needs to keep track of usage.
See also EN-161

For the purposes of users to assess service providers and their service quality there is a need for evaluative standards.

EN-100 – Definition of states
A generic definition of important states to coordinate in enabling the efficient port approach.
EN-104 – Common model for port efficiency including common measurement system
A port maturity model for evaluating the efficiency of a port including a measurement system covering which variables to measure is needed for governing the improvement processes.
EN-105 – Incentive model in ports for info sharing and Port-CDM compliance
Incentives for sharing information objects need to be identified
EN-106 – Model for Port-Call-Process (Port Call Optimization)
A common defined model for the port call process serves the basis for reflection about performance. A generic model for the port call process is used as a basis for instantiation serving as an important input for EN-101.
EN-187 – Time-stamp definition
A common standard for time stamps (ETA, ETD, ETB etc.) is approved by the international maritime community.
EN-066 – Defining of the particular processes for a port.
Based on the generic state chart the definition of different variances of processes for the particular port needs to be defined in order to identify which information object that are relevant to be shared.
EN-068 – Procedure at port for earlier synchronisation/coordination with ships
Procedures for communicating port of readiness at a particular time providing basis for the vessel to reduce speed to arrive just-in-time. This means that the port, some dedicated actor, could inform the vessel at the same time as the port guarantees that no other vessel is taken to berth occupying the quay that was aimed to that vessel.
EN-101 – Guidelines for evaluation will enable ports to compare data (Port Maturity Model)
As an important source for ports with its actors to improve is to look upon other actors performance. Guidelines for evaluation covering what to look upon are therefore needed enabling ports to compare data with each other.
EN-102 – Define type of data to be stored and evaluated, based on the port call process instance and the state chart defined for the specific port call.
Data to be used for evaluation need to be defined for the use for external service providers to log the port call process for evaluation purposes.
EN-103 – Nomination process (service) including access to historical data
By an established process for nominating collaborators is to be defined in order to ensure that relevant can provide and access data. This also includes service providers that are accredited to log the conducted port calls and distribute those to others.
EN-205 – Common understanding of timelines for optimized performance in multimodal integration
To develop a common model for understanding the effects of delays on available resources and efficiency in the process of arrival and departure in ports.
EN-057 – Training of Master and port operators using enhanced information as basis for decision making regarding planning and realisation of port call operations.
Responsibilities for ships and port operators using enhanced information as basis for decision making regarding planning and realisation of port call operations.

I.e. if berthing time will be delayed by 7 hours. Captain can choose to reduce speed to arrive just in time or maybe arrive as first planned.

EN-120 – Training in operation for new system and procedures
To be part of IMO STCW and detailed in IMO model course for deck officers at operational level.
EN-095 – Allowed provision of sharing of performance data between different ports by using a standard way to address a port call (port call message format)
The port call optimization service will provide statistics and performance measures for the port for internal use. This enabler is an information service accessible to other actors retrieving a standardized set of performance measures describing the port (potentially to be used for assessing the port�s performance in accordance with the Port Maturity Model).
EN-097 – Allow the possibility to service providers to get access to performance data for analytics services
To establish a data analytics community is an important mean for the analysis and proposal of improvements of the port calls. By allowing service providers to get access to data, via collaborator nomination processes, analysis made of shared data combined with official data (such as e.g. AIS-data) and actor specific data advise can be given informing improvements of future port call processes and actor performances.
EN-160 – Technical integration with existing actor registers in shipping
The possibility to connect the Identity registry to existing catalogue services providing actor registries (such as managed by IMPA, FONASBA, IHMA etc.).
EN-116 – Port Call Synchronisation Service
The objective is to coordinate the vessels approach with port of readiness.
EN-197 – Port Call Optimisation Service
The objective is to coordinate and adjust actions related to other actors shared intentions and performances based on the set of states for a particular port call.
