Marine Enterprise Suite (MES)
Marine Enterprise SuiteRequest More Info
The Marine Enterprise Suite (MES) has been designed to optimise the turn-around of vessels to increase terminal efficiency. Powered by the SEABERTH algorithm, MES is the leading berth scheduling application adopted by marine terminals and ports all around the world.
The Cirrus Marine Enterprise Suite, enables planners and schedulers to quickly produce an optimized vessel and berthing schedule, which obeys the constraints and operating rules at your port/terminal. MES contains an optimization algorithm called SEABERTH, which automatically creates and compares a number of possible schedules and recommends the best fit to the scheduler. The plans can be amended by the Scheduler who can override recommendations of the algorithm, in all circumstances the scheduler is in full control whilst not having to focus on all the complexity of the task.
The Marine Enterprise Suite, provides a platform for planning and scheduling, information can be served to the whole port community, customers and agents. At berth activities can be scheduled, activity times recorded, and documents printed.
- Optimise the shipping schedule in alignment with the needs of the port/terminal/refinery
- Reduce vessel waiting time and increase cargo throughput with associated revenue enhancements
- Improves customer service, in line with contractual and commercial priorities
- Improves infrastructure utilisation
- Identify opportunities for planned maintenance to reduce disruption
- Improves communication and management of KPI’s
- Share the plan in real-time with the port community, shippers and agents
- Reduce demurrage and have the necessary data to refute false claims
- SEABERTH Algorithm supports the planning and scheduling process and identifies the best vessel schedule
- Tidal data is used to apply restrictions affecting when vessels can move to or from the berth as well as determining their mooring direction port-to-quay or starboard-to-quay
- Port resources such as tugs pilots and mooring gangs, can be allocated depending on the type or size of the vessel
- Constraints Management allows for over 60 different scheduling constraints to be configured into the berthing rules
- Movement safety rules apply restrictions on vessel movements for example channel access or manoeuvring the vessel in channel
- Vessel Clearance ensuring the vessel is physically compatible with its assigned berth.
- Interactive Gantt Chart display provides a clear representation of the berth schedule.
