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!

Teqplay: when commitment leads to success

When you start a business with the aim to create tools that have impact on port logistics, you know there’s a world to win. The past four years we have been working hard and it is paying off. Thanks to our enthusiastic and talented team!

Port Reporter – in control on your port calls in 2019

Imagine: one of your vessels is about to call the port and is running into a delay. The entire planning needs to be adjusted and coordinated, and all involved parties need to be informed. The result: a lot of phone calls and e-mails eating your valuable time added to the risk running into additional delays. And we all know…Time is money!

RiverGuide Wadden Sea – increasing safety

Talking about the Wadden Sea, we tend to think about seals and beautiful mud flats. What many don’t know, is that it’s the place where lots of accidents happen every year. In 73% of the cases it’s about stranding of pleasure crafts and fishery.

RiverGuide Moerdijk – Notices to Port Authorities

Together with the Port of Moerdijk started a pilot for the inland vessels to facilitate barge skippers in digitally informing port authority on their visit and activities in the port. The pilot is part of the RiverGuide collaboration between the several port and waterway authorities, i.e. the Port of Moerdijk, Port of Rotterdam, Port of Amsterdam, Rijkswaterstaat, Groningen Sea Port, North Sea Port and the Provinces of Zuid-Holland, Noord-Holland and Overijssel.

Control Tower for the maritime Supply Chain

Real-time insight in the supply chain is key. Many processes in the organization depend on the actual delivery of the goods. Having insight in the flow on arrival and potential deviations is the first requirement for being in control. Managing the planning in different spreadsheets is holding organizations back from taking the next step in being in control on the supply chain.
