Busy terminals, large terminals, or terminals with frequent changes to information all suffer from increased complexity in decision making. An over allocation of gangs or a misallocated crane has a ripple effect on the reliability and cost of your berth plan. Use Portchain’s Crane and Gang Optimizer to automate assignment for all vessels simultaneously. Used as an assistant to the planner, optimization can remove the heavy lifting so they can tweak the result to increase capacity, reduce operational cost and improve plan reliability
