Port Activity App keeps you current

A buzz of activity surrounds a ship approaching port. If the ship’s schedule changes, this can pose challenges for cooperation between port and logistics operators. The solution: the Port Activity App, which enables efficient and economical port calls by improving information flow.

The Port Activity App helps maritime logistics operators and ports to become more efficient through real-time vessel and port information. The app also features an emissions calculation function, which helps ports and maritime operators to achieve their sustainable development goals.

The vessel emissions calculation function, developed in cooperation with Finnish companies Unikie and Envare Solutions, includes piloting in the fairway, port transfers and the berth time. The calculation starts when the ship enters the port’s waters and ends when the ship leaves the port. The emissions calculation function covers nine different emission categories and complies with international standards.

This function is part of the app’s expanding sustainability resources, which also include a waste receipt system for waste left at ports, berth planning and Just-in-Time planning systems for incoming ships.

The Port Activity App is part of Fintraffic’s maritime traffic management ecosystem work. In this effort, the target is to enable smoother data flows between various maritime players. The Port Activity App collects information relevant to all port operators, under one application, from many different systems. Port Activity is an open source app, which means that ports can customize it to meet their own needs.

The use of Port Activity App skyrocketed in 2022: the app is already being used at 21 ports in Finland and is now being introduced abroad as well, starting with Sweden. Development work has been carried out together with the users, taking the entire port operating environment into account in the devs effort.
