Good planning – the key to success

VIDAR ULLEBØ, Port operations manager, Hydro Aluminium Høyanger
Grieg Logistics AS has been serving Hydro Aluminium AS as agent in Høyanger and Aardalstangen since 1971. Approximately 300 ships are calling these ports annually with import of raw materials such a petcoke and alumina and export of high quality aluminium.
The long sailing distances for the vessels, many arriving from loading ports in Brazil and USA, and logistics at the terminals, including optimizing usage of quays and storages, requires a good planning of the calls with regard to customs handling, pilot order, ISPS-regulations, tug availability, bunker supply and document flow. All these tasks are fully or partly booked and coordinated by the agent in order to make a smooth port call, with ships arriving and departing in time according to the terminals’ schedule.
