RightShip launches ports and terminals team RightPORT

Digital platform RightShip has formalised its ports and terminals offerings with the launch of a ‘taskforce’ RightPORT.

The RightPORT team will be focused on providing data-led services to ports and terminals in the areas of vessel safety, crew welfare, and environmental issues.

The team will act as a single source of contact for those in the port-to-port supply chain, said RightShip, building on the company’s current suite of digital maritime tools for the ports and terminals sector.

As an example, RightShip said its data on vessel emissions through its Marine Emissions Portal allows ports to look at the emissions profiles of vessels using the port; that information can then be used by the port or terminal operator to create incentive programmes for vessel emissions reductions.

Yucel Yildiz, Ports and Terminals Manager at RightShip, said: “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.” 

Wassim Melhem, Product Owner of the RightPORT technology, said: “We can’t escape the reality that greater awareness and action is needed to reduce maritime risks encountered at every point in the supply chain. We’re here to help ports and terminals plan for a zero-harm future and reduce their costs and risks.”
