SHENZHEN's Shekou Container Terminals (SCT) has implemented Portchain Connect to simplify the berth alignment process with shipping lines, reports London's Port Technology.
Shekou Container Terminals (SCT) joined the Portchain Connect network earlier this month, Portchain announced.
SCT is a major transportation gateway for both international and domestic cargo in and out of south China.
Through digital handshakes and secure data sharing, Shekou Container Terminals will use Portchain Connect to simplify their communication channels and improve the quality and speed of its berth alignment with customers.
To shorten the time to align the berthing window, Portchain Connect streamlines the flow of schedule data through providing improved communication channels that not only increase quality, but curb delays in transmitting information.
Portchain Connect enables Shekou Container Terminals to receive real-time schedule and move count updates directly from carrier systems, and enables them to respond and counter propose quickly, to align the vessel schedule with the terminal berth plan.
