MOSES (autoMated vessels and supply chain Optimisation for Sustainable short sEa Shipping) aims to improve the SSS component of the container supply chain through a series of innovations including innovative vessels and optimisation of logistics operations:

-For SSS traffic, a hybrid feeder will be developed, designed to accommodate cases where ports do not have the means to load/unload. The feeder will be equipped with a robotic container handling system that is self-sufficient in terms of loading and unloading of containers and enhances the operational capacity of small ports.

-In addition, an autonomous system for manoeuvring and docking ships (MOSES AutoDock) will be developed, which will provide operational independence from the availability of port nautical services (pilots, tugs and mooring).

-A digital platform (MOSES platform) will also be developed to link demand and supply of cargo volumes (shippers, forwarders, shipping companies, ports). The platform will use machine learning and big data (availability of modes, cargo volumes and delivery times) to maximize SSS traffic.

The final result of the project will be a complete redesign of the port operation based on the feeder operation with own means of container handling and not depending on the availability of pilots or tugs to enter the port. Regarding the participation of FV, our main role is to analyze how the port operation will be affected and identify modifications that need to be made in the ship/port notification systems, container terminal operations, hybrid ship battery loading systems and study the cargo flows between the port of Valencia and medium size ports.

The aim of the project is to explore the use of new technologies that can improve the productivity of the ports managed by the Port Authority of Valencia and that will enable the ports of Sagunto and Gandía to be strengthened.

On the other hand, in the future, technologies such as the autonomous vessel are foreseen, which will obviously require the adaptation of some operations, but it will also be necessary to rethink some business models.
