Shipping industry has been around since the start of human civilisation. However, an old industry doesn’ have to contend with old ways of doing things. Robotic Process Automation (RPA), coupled with intelligence of A.I. (artificial intelligence) can automate various aspects of operations in shipping. We at Gleematic focus on automating documentation processes in this industry.
Shipping is heavily regulated and requires a lot of documentation, especially for cross-border voyages. Operations-teams are drowning in the seas of tasks such as immigration clearances, checking bills-of-lading, updating authorities for incoming and outgoing vessels, declaration of cargo, etc. We have been helping shipping agencies and shipping lines in Singapore and in neighbouring countries automate various tasks, so that work can be done faster, cheaper, and more accurately.
RPA enters crew’s info for immigration; A.I. recognize faces on identity documents to ensure accuracy
RPA informs government websites for arrivals/ departures; A.I. predicts likelihood of lateness/ punctuality
RPA reads instructions from structured Shipping Instruction documents; A.I. makes sense of other semi-structured data
RPA extracts data from multiple documents for preparation of manifest; A.I. can analyse multiple manifest-documents to predict patterns
A.I. makes sense of data from crew’s certificates and classifies them; RPA enters these data into desired fields of government sites/ portals
of time for integration
Gleematic A.I. RPA is easier to use and set up, compared to other automation tools, so that even end-users can be empowered to tap on the power of A.I. robots. You can learn to create and edit scripts to direct the robots.
