PSA Marine has unveiled OHS-Sapphire, a digital solution that provides shipmasters with real-time alerts of delivery information when their vessels are alongside Singapore terminals.
ith OHS-Sapphire shipmasters can receive timely updates and gain greater visibility over the delivery of vessel supplies, which include spare parts and food provisions.
Ship crew can also plan their time and organise their activities effectively. Other real-time information such as pilotage services to vessels that call on the port of Singapore are also available.
As a new feature on ONEHANDSHAKE, it is also a step towards sustainability. With better planning, truck drivers can reduce idling time and ship crew can take delivery of goods in a timelier manner
said Mr Jimmy Koh, Head of Digital Transformation and Chief Pilot of PSA Marine.
Furthermore, Capt. Yasuhiro Taguchi, General Manager of NYK Group South Asia Pte Ltd, added that “real-time updates on the delivery of ship supplies is a game changer,” as “for the longest time, we have been dealing with uncertainty and it was not optimal from a resource planning perspective.”
