Marlin SmartPort™

Port call optimization is an important topic in the global Ports & Harbors industry. There is a growing complexity facing port operators and associated logistics networks as they strive to deliver improved safety, increased security, governmental compliance, commercial competitiveness and efficiency of processes throughout the port community system.

ION offers a new digital optimization solution meeting these challenges. We offer a software platform that is visible to all key stakeholders across the system and other service providers who may need to plan, visualize, schedule, communicate and optimize activities during a port call. We address the complexity of port operational performance and offer a digital solution enabling ‘just in time’ port efficiency by allowing users to monitor their activities on dashboards and plan operations more efficiently.

  • Increased safety through improved situational awareness to allow joint ship/shore decision making on vessel passage plans
  • Improved collaboration between stakeholders allowing just in time planning of port operations and service delivery
  • Increased efficiency due to shorter port call turnaround times, reduced waiting times and better predictability
  • Improved communication process between all parties through smart real-time data sharing and Digital Whiteboard resulting in time savings for critical decision making
  • Cleaner environment as a result of reduced fuel burn and lower CO2 emissions
