Port authorities are on the front lines of protecting a country’s safety – they inspect and approve every cargo entry. They also maintain a widely dispersed set of fleet assets required to load, offload, and move cargo. Incorporating best maintenance practices improves operation efficiency in this tight-margined industry where port shutdowns result in months-long backlogs of goods.

Port Industry Challenges
Ventyx can help public infrastructure organizations address the challenges around ports:
- Managing a set of various assets as an operational unit - Organizations require a flexible solution that can analyze data to predict and plan maintenance activity and costs in order to optimize operations.
- Managing downtime and availability through an organizational view of the asset ecosystem - Organizations need a “single source of truth” that aggregates spatial and hierarchical asset data so that conditions observed in the field can be quickly and reliably reported to minimize the time an asset is out of service.
- Ensuring facility availability through maintenance best practices - This includes improving the way work orders are developed and segmented according to the type of work in order to provide greater predictability around maintenance needs.
- Improving port security and accountability of assets - Auditable and accurate asset condition monitoring and usage information ensures that assets are not being used for unauthorized or illegal movement of goods through the port.
