DP World among first global terminal operators to offer real-time access to container & vessel information

In line with its commitment to constantly improve operational efficiencies for customers, global marine terminal operator DP World has introduced 3G internet service for container liner operators calling at its flagship Jebel Ali Port.

Jebel Ali is among the first global ports to offer this vital communication service using the 3rd generation mobile telecommunications (3G) service in operations. The enhanced e-service enables carriers to connect to the port through the Dubai Trade portal www.dubaitrade.ae and quickly file BAPLIE (Bay Plan/Stowage Plan of Occupied and Empty Spaces) information as the vessel departs for Jebel Ali, or acquire the data for onward ports.

The data identifies each container and its location, and also identifies spaces available on board the vessel. Terminal operators can then access the data and plan the most efficient loading and discharge of containers and cargo, working closely with the carrier. The data also highlights any special handling requirements, and proper weight distribution for ship stability.

Mohammed Al Muallem, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, UAE Region, said: “The BAPLIE message is the backbone of electronic container stowage operation. Using the 3G service in our operations is an exciting new initiative that adds to the tools we have rolled out to improve operational efficiencies at our flagship Jebel Ali Port. DP World constantly invests in technology to deliver supply chain efficiencies that directly benefit our customers.”
