ARL introduces Lashing Planner

Hong Kong-based ARL Shipping has launched ARL Lashing Planner, a software application to plan lashing gang work on the quayside

Lashing Planner can save lashing costs by optimising resources to match planned quay crane activities.

Last year ARL launched its RTG Deployer software that uses TOS data to forecast and manage RTG requirements. Lashing Planner works in a similar way, taking planned container and quay crane moves and applying rules for optimal lashing team assignments to create a lashing team plan.

“The plan handles shifting of the lashing teams across vessel bays in operation as well as bays across vessels at the quay side, and results in reduced costs by cutting the overall lashing team requirement by at least 15-20%” claims ARL.

Lashing Planner is currently being tested in a major Middle Eastern terminal. "Planning of lashers is an often overlooked area of resource utilization in a terminal," said ARL director and CEO, René Bendt. 

"However, the potential for increasing the lashing teams’ productivity handling more vessel bays and more vessels with the same lashing teams, whether harvested directly by the terminal operator or via a sub-contractor, is definitely there.”

ARL has created an on-line ROI calculator to their Lashing Planner portal that can be accessed at: http://arl-shipping.com/terminals/lpt. ARL claims that most terminals can achieve a payback period of just months.
