The current market situation of diminishing margins and tightening delivery windows has led to increased complexity in planning & scheduling processes, especially in the maritime industry. In addition, the maritime sector faces sustainability challenges. Environmental regulations and the need to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint are becoming increasingly critical.
Therefore, efficient resource utilization is not only a priority for cost savings in planning departments but also a crucial aspect of meeting sustainability goals. Simultaneously, emphasis on enhancing delivery reliability and flexibility remains important.
Challenges in Maritime
The maritime industry faces various challenges, including:
Complex Business Logic: The planning department must consider a variety of interdependencies. A few of these are: shortened load/unload times, product contamination (for liquid bulk), last-minute orders, various handling rules, production disturbances, inventory management at the storage yard and many more.
Demand Disruptions: The industry is susceptible to disruptions in demand, whether due to natural disasters, geopolitical tensions, trade disputes, or pandemics. The industry needs to adapt to changes in demand.
Sustainability and Environmental Regulations: Meeting environmental standards and regulations poses challenges. Balancing sustainability goals with operational efficiency requires investment in eco-friendly practices and technologies.
Cybersecurity Threats: The digitization of processes exposes companies to cybersecurity threats.
Extreme Weather Events: Climate change, such as rising sea levels and extreme weather events impact shipping routes and port operations.
