The Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (Low Carbon GIA) launched a free-to-access portal to support the implementation of the Just in Time (JIT) arrivals.
The portal provides both port and shipping sectors with an overview of the JIT arrivals concept, including the main benefits, and general steps which can be taken towards its implementation in addition to key resources developed both by the Low Carbon GIA and other international organizations, such as the International Task Force on Port Call Optimization (ITPCO). The JIT portal can be accessed here.
The portal will be regularly updated with new developments and available information and resources. In the future, interviews with stakeholders from ports that have successfully implemented JIT will also be published on the portal where users can listen to their experiences and knowledge about the practical implementation of the concept.
Just in Time (JIT) arrival allows ships to optimize speed during their voyage to arrive in port when berth, fairway and nautical services are available. This makes JIT an important tool for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from ships
Capt. Andreas van der Wurff, Port Optimisation Manager at A.P. Moller-Maersk and Chair of the Low Carbon GIA Ship-Port Interface workstream, said.
The Low Carbon GIA has been actively exploring the concept of JIT arrival through various research projects and several industry stakeholder roundtables under the Ship-Port Interface Workstream for many years.
