Digital platform RightShip is setting up a dedicated taskforce for services to ports and terminals to bolster operations standards for safety, sustainability and crew welfare issues worldwide
Named RightPORT, the team is a single source of contact for all parties involved in the port-to-port supply chain. Its core focus is on providing the global network of ports and terminals with a service tailored to their specific requirements with instant access to information on vessel safety, crew welfare and environmental issues in one centralised location.
Building on RightShip's existing suite of maritime tools, data and expertise for ports and terminals, RightPORT aims to give port and terminal operators access to high-calibre tools on par with those enjoyed by its existing customer base of charterers and financiers.
Rightship ports and terminals manager Yucel Yildiz comments "RightShip's ambition is a zero-harm maritime industry. With more than 40 ports already taking advantage of the ESG solutions provided by RightShip, this announcement formalises our commitment to extend data-led solutions to the breadth of the industry."
"Ports and terminals are the critical points that connect the maritime world with onshore economies and communities – and that concentrate marine activity in contained areas. They are therefore crucial to our ambition, and our port and terminal team will ensure they have the data, expertise and tools to realise their ESG responsibilities and commitments."
The dedicated team will look to provide port and terminal operators with crucial information to help better understand the risk a vessel poses before, during, or after berthing to protect the wider supply chain and keep costs down.
RightShip cited its existing Marine Emissions Portal which allows operators the ability to assess the emissions profile of arriving and departing vessels. This data can then be used in different ways – for instance, creating an incentive programme of offering discounted port fees for lower-emissions vessels.
RightShip said "RightPORT taskforce is operational and fully staffed, and open to enquiries."
