ATOM Labs, Navis’ innovation lab, is approaching a milestone in its Pit Stop Port Operations prototype project, which it launched in January to prototype the value of collaborative decision making (CDM) in the Port of Algeciras.

Different stakeholders, including carriers, terminals and pilots, actively participated in different project activities including joint process mapping and data modelling.

As part of the project, identified data components have been standardised in new international nautical standards launched in September in Rotterdam, with the support of several other ports and different organisations including the International Harbour Masters' Association, BIMCO and not-for-profit organisation GS1.

The project also identified relevant problems in working towards operational excellence at the Port of Algeciras and inherent challenges to supporting cost-effectiveness and network reliability for ocean carriers.

“In only four months, the sum of prototyping, data modelling and cross-connectivity between applications has enabled realisation of the value of ‘bringing the whole port eco-system together’ and is creating an innovation ‘wave’ for evolving the existing software applications as with PMS (port management systems), TOS (terminal operating systems) and COS (carrier operating systems) for better end-to-end co-ordination across port operational processes,” said Dr Oscar Pernia, vice president for Operational Innovation at ATOM Labs.
