Nature: a surprising source of inspiration for maritime supply chains and port calls

Ever seen how nature creates and manages complex, efficient and sustainable ecosystems? It is fascinating. The maritime supply chain, including port calls, is also a very complex, competitive and collaborative system, with a great variety of stakeholders, each with its own interests. These are the valuable insights that the maritime industry can learn from nature in order to reduce waste and create a sustainable industry.

Create & Innovate: align on goals and engage | Episode 1: RiverGuide

Solutions we launch are co-created with our clients. We believe this close collaboration with clients and users is the way to create products that will serve the needs to the fullest. One of the first big projects of Teqplay was RiverGuide. Together with two members of the RiverGuide steering committee, Ben Röhner (Port of Rotterdam) and Paul van der Maat (Rijkswaterstaat) we go down memory lane.

Sail the world!

Rotterdam is our homebase, but now the moment has come to physically sail the digital world. It’s time to globally roll-out our smart solutions for the maritime industry, starting with Singapore!

The sky’s the limit … dedicated to go beyond

What happens when one of the world’s largest space to cloud analytics companies and a world-leading innovator in Port Call and Maritime Supply Chain Optimization join forces? The only right answer: interesting things!

Informed Decisions – Powered by Open Data

Teqplay’s belief in the value and power of open data has been proven once again. The new extension of RiverGuide Recreant Waddenzee brings safety and convenience through visualizing big and open data to the end-user.

Dedicated to create and innovate Port Call Optimization and Maritime Supply Chain

Digitization is the start of a new era in the maritime industry. Real-time information and tools to make smarter and informed decisions are key to be in control, pro-active and to successfully collaborate. The shipping industry needs insight in what is happening and is expected to happen, both in planning and execution. It’s all about improving asset utilization, reducing waste in operational cost labor and fuel. To spot opportunities in time is crucial!

The search for new Teqplay Talent

Excellence is the key to success and the required talent needs to be spotted early. The past years we have been closely collaborating with universities and the port community. In challenging research projects and graduation thesis we researched many challenges in collaboration with the port community. We did this together with interns from Erasmus University Rotterdam, TU Delft and the Rotterdam University (Hogeschool Rotterdam).

RiverGuide meets the Wadvaarders

On Saturday the 26th of January the yearly event of the Wadvaarders was held. It was organized at the “Maritieme Academie” in Harlingen. At the event a workshop was organised to present and discuss various apps to the Wadvaarders community. RiverGuide was also invited and we were happy to present. A great opportunity to show what we have developed based on the inputs from the previous workshop and an opportunity to get user feedback and find participants for the pilot.

Port call 2.0: more, better, lower price

It was until the late 1980s that the telephone with rotary dial could not be taken away from the desk. Exactly this old-fashioned way of thinking is still present in many maritime processes and companies. The tools have been modernized, in the form of smartphones and the mobile internet, but the way of working remained the same. It is as a new icing on the old cake. It’s time for change!
