The Client

AGS Parking and the Port Authority of Dakar

Location: Dakar, Senegal

Sremium worked hand in hand with AGS and the Port Authority of Dakar, Senegal to deliver:

  • Design of a HGV holding facility to coordinate vehicles for port access
  • Bespoke traffic flow and holding area management platform
  • Automated vehicle identification systems
  • Integrated payment and account management
  • Project Management

Project Timeline

  • Sremium engaged Q4 2018
  • Vehicles waited often for days to gain access to the port. The port had reached a hard limitation to growth
  • Vessels were being rerouted to ports in neighbouring countries with capacity
  • First trials 04/19
  • Go live 11/19

The Challenge

When Sremium embarked on this project, it encountered several challenging scenarios:

1. Trucks forming long queues at the port entry, sometimes extending up to three trucks deep and remaining stagnant for days.

2. Lack of communication between transport companies and destinations within the port, resulting in a first-come, first-served approach.

3. Frequent mechanical breakdowns and delays in customs procedures, leading to extended waiting times for drivers or loss of their position in the queue.

4. Inefficient coordination causing a bottleneck in port capacity, disrupting traffic flow in neighboring residential areas, and diminishing property values.

5. Poor internal port procedures coordination, exacerbating inefficiencies in resource planning and allocation, including:

  • Absence of a digital schedule for vessel arrivals and pier assignments.
  • Lack of digitized requirements for incoming vessels (e.g., water, fuel, cargo type).
    Inadequate estimation of vessel stays.
  • Insufficient daily progress updates for vessels within the port.
