Agenda

OVERVIEW OF PORT ORGANISM

  • Port Institutional Framework
  • Port Management Structures
  • Impact on Operations, Planning, Financing
  • Port Reform Tools

AN OVERVIEW OF TRENDS IN PORT MARKETS

  • Smart Technology: its definition, scope, developments and impact on future ports
  • Influence of shipping lines (mergers, acquisitions, closures) and its impact on port business
  • Enhancing land use where water front land is limited
  • Developments in vessel sizes and impact onport infrastructure
  • Evolution in supply chains
  • Types of port structures
  • Regional competition and its impact on business and profitability

Discussion : Illustrations will be provided by the lecturer.

Participants will then use their experience to argue their case for a RIGHT MODEL for development of ports within their country.

IDENTIFYING THE RIGHT KPIS FOR YOUR PORT OPERATIONS

  • Design of KPIs based on cargo type and mode of port operations
  • Identifying what you want to achieve through KPI
  • KPIs selection criteria
  • Developing KPIs to achieve your business objectives and goals
  • KPI Measurement and Implementation
  • KPI objectives of Port Authorities, Port Operators and Port Owners and Operators

IMPLEMENTING PORT KPIS

  • Operational VS. Non-Operational KPIs
  • Port performance indicators covering:
  • Efficiency Indicators
  • Effectiveness Indicators
  • HSSE Indicators
  • (e.g. berth utilisation rates, cargo handling rates, cargo dwell times, ship waiting times, labour productivity and others)
  • Financial Performance Indicators

Class Exercise: KPIs computation and illustration on how it impacts port productivity

PORT OPERATIONS PLANNING AND OPTIMIZATION THROUGH USE OF SIMULATION MODELS AND SOFTWARE TOOLS; THUS ENABLING A SMART PORT SETUP

  • Simulation modeling of port operations
