The ship stowage plan could, in this scenario, be seen simply as a dynamic diagram that depicts the real-time location of each container currently stowed on the ship.
Thus, while the automatically developed stowage plan may simply reflect the most efficient layout for a particular terminal, it increasingly reflects the integration and communication between terminals belonging to the same firm, with productivity gains spread between different terminals across the loop rather than being concentrated in a single site.
As implied above, these infrastructures could include the ship stowage plan, but they may also include the computer terminals and screens that are integrated into each straddle carrier, providing the stevedore with real-time information regarding which container to pick up next, and where it should be placed.
