This edition zooms into three parts:
- Understanding the Ship Shore Safety Checklist
- What are the benefits both terminals and ships experience when digitizing ship shore processes
- What sets Smartflow apart from others in the market for the ship-shore safety checklist
The ship shore safety checklists enhance working relationships between ships and terminals, with the ultimate goal of improving operational safety. When either the ship or terminal personnel lack a clear understanding of the processes, mistakes take over.
The ship shore safety checklist is included in both ISGOTT 5 and ISGOTT 6. The main important update to the ship shore safety checklist in ISGOTT 6 is that communication should start before the vessel’s arrival/ interface at the terminal.

Terminals are focused on minimizing onboarding costs and optimizing expenditures. Smartflow offers a unique pay-per-use model, significantly reducing upfront expenses associated with traditional systems.
Time is of the essence when it comes to terminal operations. Smartflow ensures a rapid implementation process. Leveraging our expertise and industry knowledge, we can seamlessly deploy our system within an impressive timeframe of just three weeks. Moreover, our solution supports simultaneous integration across multiple terminals, enabling terminal operators to maximize efficiency across their entire infrastructure.
We understand that terminal operations are a complex ecosystem involving various systems and stakeholders. By integrating with other systems, our solution enhances overall operational efficiency, minimizing vessel waiting times and ensuring a smooth flow of goods.
Integration with terminal management systems (TMS):
This integration enables terminal operators to optimize their operations by harnessing the potential of real-time data exchange, improved communication, and automated processes. At Smartflow, we digitize various terminal processes, incorporating best practices from across operations, to provide tank storage terminal personnel with a user-friendly and efficient solution.
Flexibility for terminal adaptability
We recognize that each port has unique requirements and operational structures. Our solution is highly flexible, allowing terminal operators to tailor the system to their specific needs while keeping costs low. This flexibility enables terminals to adapt and scale their operations as demand fluctuates, ensuring optimal resource allocation and enhanced productivity.
Customizable setup for a liner experience
We believe in providing a unified experience for vessels visiting the port while still accommodating the terminal's individual setup preferences. Our solution allows terminal operators to define the basic setup, ensuring a standardized vessel experience while maintaining flexibility. This cohesive approach enhances vessel satisfaction, reduces turnaround times, and fosters a positive reputation.
Streamlined operations for all stakeholders
Our solution isn't limited to terminal operators alone. It extends its benefits to other key stakeholders within the port ecosystem, such as surveyors. By leveraging our solution, surveyors can optimize their processes, shortening the port stay and enabling a more efficient turnaround time for vessels. This streamlined approach benefits all parties involved, fostering collaboration and enhancing overall port performance.
