Just In Time Arrival Guide released

A new Just In Time (JIT) Arrival Guide which aims to provide both port and shipping sectors with practical guidance on how to facilitate JIT ship operations has been released.

The Guide has been developed by the Global Industry Alliance to Support Low Carbon Shipping (Low Carbon GIA),  based on research and discussion amongst its membership, and the Guide documents the findings of a series of industry roundtables which brought together nearly 50 companies and organizations who are key stakeholders in the port call process.

The Guide provides a holistic approach to JIT ship operations, considering contractual aspects to its implementation as well as operational. The guide is envisaged as a useful toolkit for many stakeholders including shipowners, ship operators, charterers, ship agents, shipbrokers, port authorities, terminals, nautical and vessel service  providers. All these actors ultimately play a key role in implementing the necessary changes and facilitating the exchange of communication required to realize JIT ship operations.
