AKQUINET and ISL complete feasibility study ‚LAVIS‘ successfully

‚Estimated Time of Availability‘ concept to support transport companies

Hamburg/Bremen, 24.11.2020 – It is nothing new that time and cost pressures are also increasing in port hinterland traffic. The planning of container acceptance at the seaport is a particular challenge when importing. A forecast of the estimated time of availability will support transport companies in the future. Together with akquinet port consulting GmbH, ISL has evaluated the feasibility of a corresponding information service within the project ‚LAVIS - Intelligent Data Analysis for Forecasting Cargo Availability in Seaports‘. The results were recently presented to representatives of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI).

One of the main project components included the analysis of the application scenario. ‚It was important for us to understand the perspective of the transport companies‘, explains ISL project manager Patrick Specht. ‚More than 90 percent of the companies interviewed in the project stated that transport customers are pushing for a speedy acceptance of the containers in the seaport. This group confirmed to us that a forecast of the cargo availability would support us considerably in this process‘.

From a technological point of view, the essential processes of a corresponding forecast application were integrated within the framework of an algorithm concept. A particular challenge was the medium- and long-term forecast of the expected unloading time. Since the planning of the terminal is only carried out immediately before the arrival of the ship, machine learning and simulation approaches were designed, with which an indication can be provided at an early stage.

In addition, the project team discussed possible operator concepts for the forecast service with experts from the port industry. After a positive conclusion on the "Estimated Time of Availability" could be drawn in the feasibility study, a prototype implementation represents the next logical step. ‚Now it is a matter of bringing the right partners together and evaluating the possibilities of a pilot implementation,‘ explains Norbert Klettner, akquinet port consulting GmbH. A service demonstrator created in the project is to support this process, with which the interaction of the forecast service can be illustrated in various scenarios.  

The Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) has funded the project within the framework of the mFUND research initiative for a period of one year. With the research initiative mFUND (Modernitätsfonds) the BMVI supports various research and development projects around digital data-based applications for mobility 4.0.
