Robotic Process Automation at Ports

Robotic Process Automation does not need an introduction anymore; it has been in use for a while and is quite trending. Companies belonging to various sectors have started to embrace this innovative technology to ease their business processes. Ports are no exception.

Automated ports are safer when compared to the conventional ones. There are five constituents of automation in ports: equipment, equipment-control systems, terminal control tower, human–machine interactions, and interactions with the port community. If all the five constituents are leveraged jointly, one can expect maximum benefit, i.e., up to 55% reduction of operating expenses and up to 35% increase in productivity.

Uses of Robotic Process Automation  for Ports

Port gates Automation

A port terminal is a restricted area and extreme care must be taken to manage traffic at port gates. All entities that cross the gate must be identified and recorded, to ensure safety.

There has been a massive increase in the volume of container traffic passing through the gates and hence, it has become mandatory to employ technology to check the same. Robotic Process Automation  can be used for various purposes that include entry and exit logs, docking payments, verification, etc. This will help in streamlining the workflow and ensuring security, thereby reducing issues related to productivity that will result from queuing at port gates.

Damage inspection
Physical damage to the containers, wet damage, or leaks are quite common that can incur high repair costs. If the damages are identified at an earlier stage, it will be possible to cope with it in the best possible way.Robotic Process Automation  Dubai comes into use here. The technology can be leveraged to inspect damage accurately and without any delay.

Ship Invoicing
It is the responsibility of the port to prepare the required documents for vessel invoicing. Marine and harbour charges, docking, garbage removal, and crew transport must be invoiced for all the vessels entering the port. Rail cost, security, power, and customer-required movement must be charged per container.

These charges will be different, depending on the kind of service, type of container and the line. Multiple systems will have to be put in use to capture and assess the data to produce invoices. This is a hectic and time-consuming job, which can be made easier with the help of Robotic Process Automation  Dubai. Software bots can integrate various systems, output shipping line-specific invoices, and forward the invoices to the finance department.

Within- and between-ports communication
Robotic Process Automation  Dubai promises greater connectivity among ports by enabling real-time information sharing. It eases the process of data collection on cloud servers, data access and translation and enables self navigation.

With the aid of cloud platforms, the portuary industrial machinery can be linked to the digital system, thus allowing full connectivity within and between-ports. Maritime companies that are highly attached to their legacy systems might find some difficulty while using cloud; Robotic Process Automation in Dubai helps in avoiding these difficulties.

Implementing Robotic Process Automation in Dubai for communication within and between ports increases the precision level and safety of vessel mooring.

The advantages of adopting Robotic Process Automation across ports are many; it ensures more efficient control of traffic and trade flows, increased port capacity and efficiency, improved oversight of port emissions and improved process flow stability.

Currently, only large maritime gateways have implemented the technology. Gradually, even medium and small players will realize the potential of Robotic Process Automation and use it to scale-up their operations.
