Port of Tanjung Pelepas to use AI to Improve Efficiency

Port of Tanjung Pelepas AI

The Malaysian Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), a joint venture between APM Terminals (30%) and the MMC Group, has agreed to deploy Innovez One’s AI-powered Port Management Information System (PMIS) to improve efficiency and optimise its scheduling.

Port information management systems provider Innovez One said it would supply its MarineM solution to PTP to aid the port in its journey towards digitalisation. The system’s integration at the port is scheduled for the early third quarter of 2022.

MarineM will provide an interface where agents can register their vessels and order services to support arrivals, such as supplies, logistics and marine services. Using algorithms powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, MarineM’s planning module will automatically manage schedules and dispatch resources.

According to Innovez One, this AI-powered system can instantly reallocate resources if a vessel’s ETA changes, hence limiting waiting times and making PTP more resilient in the face of congestion.

MarineM will also enable agents to monitor the status of their orders in real-time and will automate the billing process. It also includes a live map where port managers can view each vessel’s movements.

“The transition of digitalisation and automation is speeding up in the entire maritime industry,” said Marco Neelsen, Chief Executive Officer of PTP.

PTP has proactively invested in its assets and infrastructure to secure efficient, sustainable operation and business competitiveness. PTP is committed to continuing the journey and creating value for our customers, shareholders and other stakeholders.”

This significant technological milestone will unlock new efficiencies at the Port of Tanjung Pelepas and ensure that all pieces fall into place seamlessly to support ships’ arrivals and departures,” added David Yeo, CEO and founder of Innovez One. “As recent months have demonstrated, what we refer to as the first and last mile of the journey at sea is critical. Digitalisation is now more important than ever to make ports more resilient to disruptions and avoid the multiplication of seemingly minor delays that can exacerbate port congestion.”

PTP said it would invest RM750 million ($178.5 million) in expanding capacity earlier this year. Speaking to reporters at the PTP 11 million TEU milestone celebration, Marco Neelsen said, “Capacity will grow from 11.5 million TEU to 12.5 million TEU within the first six months of 2022.”
