SEAPort Solutions trials PAULA

SEAPort Solutions SL is a Spanish technical start-up company formed by Fundación Valenciaport, Infoport Valencia and Híades Consulting. Its main product is PAULA (Platform for Automatically Linking Agents), which is designed to optimise port call processes based on automated real-time information exchange among all stakeholders.

According to SEAPort, PAULA will facilitate data exchange, by means of the international standard IALA-S211, among all the agents that participate in the processes of port calls. The tool can be customised to the characteristics and particularities of each port and its operation.


“Thanks to this new software,” said SEAPort, “authorities and operators will be able to increase the efficiency of port call processes, helping to reduce the turnaround time and, therefore, improving the efficiency of the ports themselves.”

Pilot tests of this new concept showed that only 40% to 65% of the time spent in port, depending on the type of ship, is dedicated to loading and unloading operations, confirming the potential margin for improvement in process.
