1 PAPC Conference IAPH Africa-Europe Regional Meeting PMAESA Council Meeting Djibouti Date: 3/11/2008

2 National Infrastructure A countrys trade efficiency relies on the processes that it carefully builds for its trade supply chain A countrys infrastructure capacity / demand may experience in spikes, ramp-ups, surges, …etc., while its infrastructure grows in steps Solutions for capacity / demand growth does not always lie in a matching increase of infrastructure Non capital-intensive projects may prove to be more effective than concrete laden projects PPP is vital to non capital–intensive projects, since services are driven by HR, technology, efficiency and effectiveness

3 Port Congestions Other Face The immediate solution to any port congestions is: building another port Investments in new ports take time Investment in these economic down-turns could delay decision for years Immediate focus is usually on quay side and in-terminal operations Limited maneuvering room for getting cargo out of the terminal Off-port yards are a costly, difficult solution Coordinating truck operations with cargo availability is key to immediate improvements Hence, NAFITH TCS…

4 NAFITH Profile NAFITH (National Freight Information and Transportation Hub) is a freight transportation logistics service to facilitate cargo movement countrywide, or through transport corridors Concept developed by FreightDesk Technologies (USA) and Nafith Logistics PSC. Jordan Has been adopted by Jordan through a Public – Private Partnership with Nafith Logistics PSC., operated as privately-funded, publicly-chartered utility, financially supported by users and beneficiaries

5 5 More than 2000 truck transits per day Recurring congestion problems in Aqaba city and at key port terminals Long, indeterminate wait times causing 3x longer roundtrip times than necessary Poor coordination between trucks and terminal activities Limited shipment status visibility for cargo owners Pollution and disruption of popular tourist areas (exhaust/noise/traffic) High truck transport costs No performance measurements The Situation (2005) Government support and legal authority required for improvements Pervasive corruption problems Incumbent trucking cartel resistant to changes to status quo Limited use of computer- based systems in transportation sector Limited infrastructure to support 24x7 operation of computer systems The Challenges ASEZ Truck Movement – Before NAFITH


7 Other Objectives of TCS Enhancing security and safety Decreasing truck emissions and pollutants Decreasing cost of freight from and to ports Abiding by national regulations Providing information on transportation and freight nationally

8 Main Stakeholders Ministry of Transport Port Authorities Terminal Operators Customs Trucking Companies, Truckers Border Control Authorities NAFITH

9 Yards – after TCS


11 11 INTERNET Truck/cargo status Billing/payment info Request entry & route Time & route assignment Verify truck, driver, route, cargo Provide truck ticket with routing instructions Track truck enroute and at marshalling yards Record cargo pickup at terminal Record truck exit Nafith Truck Control System FDfolio Government Regulatory compliance and status reports Truck Company Manager Dispatcher ASEZA Truck Movement – The Solution Electronic validation and compliance checks

12 TCS IT Systems Automation of Business Flow implemented by NAFITH Developing a Web Based, Multiple Language system, including Arabic Automated and manual capture of detailed logistics event data across cargo and vehicle movement life cycles Flexible management of Capacity of the marshalling yards, destinations and roads through Advanced Queuing Algorithms Verification of Trucking Companies and Availability of Cargo through integration with MoT and National Customs Creating an easy-to-use matrix of adding/removing destinations and roads on a need basis Complete Transparency and Control between ground operation and administrators An information Hub to retrieve Statistical Information on truck flow within the ASEZ through an extensive reporting module for future projections (congestions areas, truck turn over, truck flow, … etc) High Volume of Transactions and Large User Base

13 Logistics Event Capture Screen based entry System to system integration RFID GPS Barcode

14 Detailed Operational Data

15 Planning Statistics

16 16 Avg. 3000+ permits daily/18,000+ daily events Validates truck, driver and cargo information and routes traffic to reduce congestion and enhance security Freight rates dropped 20% due to improved efficiencies and trucking company profits rose Transparent, automated system removes manual decisions thereby reducing corruption Improved visibility of information used to support cargo tracking, equipment/driver utilization and regulatory compliance Fully localized user interface Requirements gathering began mid-August; system operating three months later by mid- November 2005 Received 10-year services contract to operate business and manage 200 people and IT systems ASEZA TCS – After NAFITH

17 National Impact of TCS Quantum increase in transport efficiency Terminal operators focus on terminal operations Coordinated moves, e.g. drop off/pick up, on the rise With TCS, regulators are removing operational constraints on trucking companies System keeps traffic moving with seasonal and other spikes in volume Data from TCS facilitates better short and long term planning TCS can give priority to strategic supplies, e.g. fuel, grains, when necessary Better environment with less pollution Improved road safety and incident management More investments materialized in the trucking and logistics sectors because it simply became more transparent and feasible


19 Toppings Pre-notification of containers and shipments Coordination of express permits Appointment system for containers and bulk cargo, enabling stakeholders to have longer term planning Terminal operator staff planning for overtime or higher than usual loads Implement RFID network and tags to capture events more efficiently More timely information for all stakeholders (clearing agents, truck companies, shipping agents, and ports)

20 NAFITH: Conclusion TCS in Jordan, like PierPASS in Los Angeles and GEM in New Orleans, is leading the way to improve truck logistics around ports NAFITH is well-suited to implement solutions that can work in the cargo transport environment in Africa Our experience with coordinating and monitoring transit cargo can enhance services to land-locked countries and through corridors NAFITH TCS approach can increase capacity without major new physical infrastructure Advanced services needed more cutting edge technological investments in a short period of time
