maritime shipping digitization

Dynamically manage berth cargo sequences and handling activities.

Berth Scheduling offers a simple, visual workspace from which to manage the current port activities by cargo and plan the forward cargo lineup, allowing your dock schedulers and marine planners to more efficiently move equipment through the berth and reduce demurrage exposure. 

Learn how the newest module on the Veson IMOS Platform (VIP) will streamline your terminal operations, optimize cargo load and discharge, and provide visibility into critical port activities. 

Benefits of Berth Scheduling

A unique digital tool designed to bring new efficiency into the berth scheduling process in the context of an end-to-end solution, VIP Berth Scheduling has a number of compelling advantages for any professional responsible for maintaining vessel or barge traffic flow at the berth, or the impacted by berth activity:

  • industry standard

    Visualize your entire Berth Schedule.

    A dynamic Gantt chart provides your users with a commanding view of the current and forward activities across all berths at a given terminal. Cargo bookings can be allocated to available berths via an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface complete with warnings and restrictions for vessel type and cargo.

  • manage exposure

    Reduce exposure to demurrage.

    Complete integration with voyage and cargo activities standardizes the planning across your managed berths and takes the guesswork out of handling timelines. Your dock schedulers and marine planners are empowered to move equipment through the terminal more efficiently, mitigating demurrage exposure and maximizing visibility to potential claims.

  • integrates

    Automate internal workflows

    The Berth Scheduling workspace updates automatically with the latest operational data from other VIP modules, giving your team a real-time view of critical information. Users can actualize planned events directly from the visual schedule when the barge or vessel is at the berth under operation; this data will feed directly back into laytime calculations and forward voyage tracking.
