Qube Ports & Bulk provides wharf-side port logistics and port management services to all Australian capital city ports in the Australian region.
Qube Ports and Bulk required a better approach to packing the Spirit of Tasmania I and II ferries crossing the Bass Strait on a daily basis. With shipment demands and loads changing frequently, the existing approach was an inflexible and time-consuming white-board and Excel-based planning process. The expertise and knowledge for packing the ferries was also limited to a few individuals.
The Spirit of Tasmania I and II are critical to Tasmania as they transport both vehicles and freight on a daily basis. As a result, Qube Ports and Bulk’s priority was to ensure all ferries were packed as efficiently as possible for load balancing and optimising fuel.
