Port Brisbane (Queensland Australia) will be using Port Dues - a digital port management module automatically calculating port dues.
Every year, Port Brisbane not only receives all types of cargo ships but also ~200 cruise liners. The Port Authority recently rounded off work on the new facility Brisbane International Cruise Terminal. The new passenger terminal is able to handle even the world's largest cruise liners.
Teresa Murphy, Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd’s Head of Technology, said:
“The Port of Brisbane was looking for an innovative digital solution to streamline our cruise ship booking and invoicing process and has selected Port Rotterdam’s solution to deliver. We are working very closely with our colleagues in Rotterdam and look forward to start using the new system when the Brisbane International Cruise Terminal becomes operational.”
The digital port management module collects all the information required for the automated calculation and invoicing of port dues. Port authorities can use the feature to satisfy their legal obligations in this context.
The modular structure of the application means it has a low threshold for implementation, regardless of the size of the port. Port authorities can easily expand the system with extra modules. It enables them to optimally manage their operations as well as take maximum advantage of the port's assets. The system uses big data and AI (artificial intelligence) to compile accurate information about various subjects, including departure times and ship ETAs (Estimated Time of Arrival). The system can also be used to record and report incidents.
