MOL introduces J-CARPS to bolster car carriers’ operational efficiency

Tokyo - Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL) has started operating the J-CARPS system, jointly developed with the Japan Cargo Tally Corporation.

This system is designed to streamline and enhance the efficiency of the car loading process for car carriers, a process that typically involves loading thousands of units onto a single vessel.

Generally, around 6,000 to 7,000 units are loaded onto a car carrier. The loading process is as follows: J.C.T.C checks (counts) where and how many cars are loaded onboard the vessel at each port in Japan, and shipping companies uses the results to prepare a cargo loading plan for the next port.

Traditionally, information about the location and quantity of cars loaded onto car carriers was managed separately by shipping companies and the J.C.T.C., with data shared via email. However, MOL recognized the potential for improved efficiency by centralizing this data into a unified system. As a result, the J-CARPS system was developed, providing a single database where all parties involved, including shipping companies, stevedore companies, and the J.C.T.C., can access and update loading plans and performance data in real-time.

One of the key features of J-CARPS is its “file attachment function” and “simple message sending function,” allowing stakeholders to communicate and collaborate seamlessly within the system. Additionally, by consolidating databases and standardizing data formats, J-CARPS eliminates discrepancies between systems and enables shipping companies to optimize loading capacity more accurately, MOL said.
