Peterson launches new Transport Request ToolLeading international energy logistics company Peterson has announced the launch of its Transport Request Tool (“TRT”), designed to digitally streamline the offshore transport order process and is the latest application in Peterson’s growing suite of digital applications.
Following the successful introduction of Peterson’s eCargo, the first system to digitise quayside operations making them more transparent and efficient, the next step was to digitally streamline the offshore transport order process. With this new innovative solution, cargo items are no longer treated as cargo for a specific vessel, but as a request to be transported. The new tool removes the need for duplicate data input allowing clients to enter their transport requirements directly via TRT, removing unnecessary over processing in the supply chain allowing Peterson to focus on adding value to the customer in other ways.
Ron van der Laan, regional director, Peterson commented: “New technologies are fundamental to enable the oil and gas industry to streamline and enhance operational efficiencies both on and offshore.
“With the increased focus on long term cost reduction, particularly in mature basins, and the continuing low oil price our sector must respond and adopt emerging technologies and leverage the power of automated processes to ensure a long term sustainable future. TRT is the latest tool in our continuous drive to deliver operational excellence for our customers.”
The first of Peterson’s clients to use TRT is Wintershall. Rob Molenaar, logistics superintendent, added: “A focus on collaboration and genuine team work, combined with logical and innovative thinking is what is needed within the industry at this time.
“Peterson has taken great steps in this direction particularly through the creation of vessel sharing initiatives and pioneering technology concepts and we see this tool as a big step towards greater efficiency in the offshore supply chain.”
