Port operator gains deeper visibility into customers, port asset utilisation, export clearance and dwell days performance

17 October 2018, London, UK – Saudi Global Ports (SGP), a joint-venture company between the public investment fund (PIF) of the kingdom of Saudi Arabia and PSA international (PSA), has deployed QiO’s Foresight Suite® as part of the company’s digital transformation initiative to deliver improved insights and visibility to operational efficiency. The solution was designed to enable increased visibility into key performance indicators and higher utilisation of port capacity resulting in increased container movements.

To meet their growth and business improvement objectives, the Saudi Global Ports team partnered with QiO to design an Industry 4.0 approach to move away from manual processes and the use of thousands of spreadsheets to track shippers and consignees. The QiO solution was deployed in less than three months and deployed as an edge cloud appliance at their facility.

Saudi Global Ports operates at the Dammam’s King Abdul Aziz Port, an important deep-water port in the Arabian Gulf of Saudi Arabia. Dammam is the closest gateway port to the country’s economic centre and capital city, Riyadh, and as the largest Gulf port in Saudi Arabia, efficiency and maximum utilisation of all SPG assets is business critical to provide one-step logistics solutions to their customers.
