Vessel Clearance Guide (VCG) is the appropriate solution for each terminal. This tool automates the vessel clearance process and minimizes the necessary user and customer inputs. Because the process is automated, the chance of human error is reduced significantly.
The details of the terminal, the jetty and the pipeline will be entered into VCG. The properties of a ship are imported into VCG by dragging and dropping a document containing the information. No further user action is required. The properties of the vessel are compared with the physical characteristics of the different jetties of a terminal. The result is a clear overview of the suitable jetties for the selected vessel.
This customer friendly way of working ensures that vessels can be cleared more quickly and customers will receive a rapid confirmation. At this moment the tool is in use by multiple terminals.
