Port strategy | Addressing Endpoint Efficiency
The terminal’s operations in North Africa will be overhauled as part of a new efficiency project.
HPC Hamburg Port Consulting has been commissioned by the Sudanese Ministry of Transport on behalf of the Sea Ports Corporation of Sudan (SPC) to improve the terminal operations of the South Port Container Terminal (SPCT) in Port Sudan. The goal is a significant reduction in vessel waiting times and increased productivity of cargo handling equipment and terminal operations.
Minister of Transport, HE Mergani Musa Hamad, said: “For our country, SPCT is the gateway to international trade and a major employer for the Port Sudan region. We therefore aspire to a modern and efficient container terminal that will be a growth engine for the city and our country as a whole. We want to do this in a transparent, collaborative manner and with the support of internationally recognized port experts. I have great confidence and believe in the power of our workforce. Together, we will be able to make SPCT a resilient and effective backbone of Sudanese commerce.
HPC consultants focus on generating greater efficiency in operational and administrative processes to accelerate vessel handling processes. In addition, working closely with SPC, HPC will pave the way for a planned maintenance system and efficient repair services to ensure increased equipment productivity and lower operating costs. In addition to increased terminal efficiency, the program emphasizes comprehensive training in health, safety, security and the environment.
The trained program is based on an in-depth analysis of current assets and on-site infrastructure. All agreed activities will be developed and executed with terminal management.
