Our TerminalSmart™integrated, web-based terminal logistics optimization platform effectively enables you to increase the utilization of your assets. It also reduces exposure to the costs of demurrage and delay using scheduling, forecasting, activity logging, and conflict management modules. The modules are supported by analytical tools designed specifically to optimize liquid terminal performance and reduce costs.

The TerminalSmart system leverages a web-based platform to provide a real-time, collaborative service that enables stakeholders to access to up-to-date information. You control the level of access granted to your employees, customers, inspectors, agents, and third parties. Using the TerminalSmart system, you can reduce the number of phone calls your team receives by providing answers to routine questions using the system’s interface while empowering your team to capture data at its source. You can also leverage our comprehensive role management functionality to assign data capture duties to the appropriate stakeholders. Users equipped with the TerminalSmart Flex Reporting module gain valuable insight on the progress of operations in real time using customized, operational dashboards. The Flex Reporting module drives terminal efficiency by benchmarking and trending key performance indicators (KPIs) to evaluate and improve practices.

PortVision 360 Integration

Integration with and access to the Oceaneering PortVision 360 maritime intelligence system further enhances TerminalSmart system functionality. The PortVision360 Enterprise service provides valuable access to real-time and historical vessel movements and supports monitoring of vessel traffic, the export of relevant data reports, and alerts on activity in proximity to your assets.

Scheduling and Activity Logging

The TerminalSmart scheduling and logging module efficiently streamlines movement activities and provides a comprehensive system for the logistics management of liquid terminals. It provides an opportunity to reduce idle time and enables optimization of vessel, truck, rail, and pipeline movements.

Web-based scheduling allows authorized users, both internal and external to your organization, to view and modify schedules with a flexible, drag-and-drop interface. Flexible configuration support includes features such as assigning multiple jobs to a movement and developing what-if sample scenarios to optimize your current schedule.  Keep your entire team aware of cost impact of demurrage with our heads up display on the schedule and on every event log.

The system enables you to leverage its flexible activity logging system to collect event details and conditions in a simple, consistent manner. The event logger benefits from the easy-to-use paperless data collection tool to measure the overall efficiency of the terminal. Our terminal experts can work with your team to develop an event log that meets your liquid terminal needs.

The system effectively becomes a single repository for all information associated with product movement at your terminal. A built-in document management system, along with form generation, enables the electronic capture and retention of all necessary documentation. The TerminalSmart system delivers information required to resolve commercial disputes including the automated creation of the terminal’s own Statement of Facts. The document generated by the system can be compared to documentation provided by vessel operators or agents.

Forecasting and Conflict Management

The TerminalSmart forecasting and conflict module monitors scheduled tank levels and pipe line ups providing your team the most up-to-date information concerning product location. The module increases efficiency and reduces risk by actively notifying your team of potential conflicts in pipe line ups and tank space limitations during scheduling.

The system actively monitors each schedule adjustment for potential conflicts. It warns the scheduler of vessel or dock fit conflicts, tank over-topping, roof landings, product mismatches, and line up conflicts. The information provided by the module enables your team to make optimized decisions during the scheduling phase to ensure safe and efficient terminal operations.

Resource Optimization and Traffic Management

The TerminalSmart system enables the user to analyze how to best optimize terminals to get the most throughput in the least amount of time and provides a solution for keeping information used to manage delay and demurrage claims at hand. System efficiency reduces costs by leveraging accurate vessel, terminal, dock, pipeline, tank, and third-party performance metrics

Thailand’s Kra Canal: Game-Changer Waiting to Happen

Building a canal across Thailand’s Kra Isthmus to connect the Andaman Sea in the Indian Ocean to the South China Sea isn’t a new idea. In fact, it’s been around since the 17th century, when a king in the region requested a report on the feasibility of the project. The notion resurfaced two centuries later, when Ferdinand de Lesseps—the “Father of the Suez Canal”—expressed support for such a...Read more
