When you start a business with the aim to create tools that have impact on port logistics, you know there’s a world to win. The past four years we have been working hard and it is paying off. Thanks to our enthusiastic and talented team!
The Teqplay-team is growing, we are proud to announce that Sander Jellema has joined as of the 1st of January as our Sales and Marketing Manager. With Sander’s experience and can do-attitude we believe Teqplay will manage to grow and reach the goals for the (near) future.
Teqplay started four years ago and set out to create smart solutions for port call optimization. One of them is Port Reporter. As from today, more than 15% of the port calls in the Port of Rotterdam are organized and controlled with this easy-to-use and pro-active tool.
Imagine: one of your vessels is about to call the port and is running into a delay. The entire planning needs to be adjusted and coordinated, and all involved parties need to be informed. The result: a lot of phone calls and e-mails eating your valuable time added to the risk running into additional delays. And we all know…Time is money!
Saturday the 8th of December was already reserved in our agenda for a long time. Teqplay was invited at the “Waterklerken Banquet -2018” of the “Koninklijke Vereniging der Waterklerken Antwerpen“. A lot of tall tales had been shared with us. The kind of stories that belong to the world of ports.
Talking about the Wadden Sea, we tend to think about seals and beautiful mud flats. What many don’t know, is that it’s the place where lots of accidents happen every year. In 73% of the cases it’s about stranding of pleasure crafts and fishery.
Together with the Port of Moerdijk started a pilot for the inland vessels to facilitate barge skippers in digitally informing port authority on their visit and activities in the port. The pilot is part of the RiverGuide collaboration between the several port and waterway authorities, i.e. the Port of Moerdijk, Port of Rotterdam, Port of Amsterdam, Rijkswaterstaat, Groningen Sea Port, North Sea Port and the Provinces of Zuid-Holland, Noord-Holland and Overijssel.
Playing around with technology, thinking out of the box, driving innovation in order to build the port and the port community. That is what we love, that is what we do, that is what we are good at. And that is why we participated in the ChainPort Hackathon in Antwerp.
Real-time insight in the supply chain is key. Many processes in the organization depend on the actual delivery of the goods. Having insight in the flow on arrival and potential deviations is the first requirement for being in control. Managing the planning in different spreadsheets is holding organizations back from taking the next step in being in control on the supply chain.
In 2018 and 2019 more bridges in the Province of Noord-Holland will be added to the system
