Graphical Bayplan and Load/Discharge Confirmation under the QC and in the QC Cabin

A tablet running Quay Crane Visualiser

You have planned your loading and discharge sequence; printed and dispatched the bayplans to your hatch clerk under the crane and to the crane driver in his cabin. The walkie talkies are fitted in the qc driver's cabin and at the side of the hatch clerk.

And still your trucks need to go to a holding area upon receiving discharge containers, until they get instructions for planned yard location. And when you change your crane loading plans during the port stay, your operation need to halt and wait for revised bayplans and load/discharged lists to be printed and distributed to the hatch clerk and tally men.

Some of your hatch clerk's instructions as well as own notes and reportings are handwritten on the printed bayplan, and only updated in the central system later.

Now the solution is here: give the hatch clerk, tally men and quay crane driver online access to the graphical bayplans and crane work queue from a graphical tablet device.

The visualiser application support for loading and discharging process:

  • Login
  • Select crane and current bay to visualise it
  • View up-to-date bay plan and crane work queue in a graphical display
  • Quay driver view discharge containers, including planned sequence and hot box priorities in a graphical display tailored for crane cabin strong sun light conditions
  • Hatch clerk update discharge moves by touch screen upon drop on truck
  • Hatch clerk update load moves upon spreader connect, and immediately quay driver screen visually indicate vessel target slot, replacing most audio instructions between hatch clerk and driver
  • Out-of-gauge, twin & quad lifts as well as double cycle moves supported
