YILPORT’s Smooth Operations Help Move Millions Of Goods Every Day
Innovation YILPORT’s Smooth Operations Help Move Millions Of Goods Every Day Judith Magyar Brand Contributor SAP BRANDVOICE Storytelling and expertise from marketers | Paid Program Jun 14, 2023, 02:08pm EDT | Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Images of huge container ships gliding in and out of ports have come to symbolize the modern supply chain. Managing these ports – the gateways of international trade – is a highly complex business. The most important part of the ocean shipping industry, seaports expedite the movement of millions of goods each day. They provide facilities for docking, loading, unloading, and storing cargo, and many are undergoing a massive transformation as the industry recovers from pandemic-related disruptions. All-inclusive logistics hubs One company that excels at this intricate task is YILPORT Holding , which owns and operates 24 marine ports and terminals and 7 dry terminals around the globe. These terminals offer multipurpose services, supported by inland container terminals, depots, warehouses, and logistics centers. The company was established in 1980s by Robert Yüksel Yildirim, Chairman and CEO of YILPORT Holding. Originally known as Mr. Chrome, Yildirim was the market maker of the chrome industry before becoming the Lord of the Ports. As a game-changing mechanical engineer, his vision for YILPORT Holding’s growth strategy in port operations has been followed closely by the industry. “Our mission is to rank among the top 10 international operators by 2030 and be the game-changer in port and terminal operations. In a world where everything is so interdependent, our sector is a key player in world trade,” said Murat Akbudak, CFO for YILPORT Holding, at the recent SAP Seaports Innovation Summit held in Istanbul, Turkey. The company’s C-level team was on hand to highlight the advantages and benefits of doing business with YILPORT. Erhan Çiloglu, CMO of YILPORT Holding, outlined the company’s one-stop shop service model . Available at all locations, it includes resources and facilities to handle container, bulk, and liquid cargo and provides damage-free stevedoring for automotive roll-on/roll-off services, logistics services such as freight forwarding, pilotage and tug services at all terminals, and much more. “Our customers can take advantage of combined services to minimize costs and maximize the velocity of cargo flow,” said Çiloglu. “We are an end-to-end service provider, with simple supply chain solutions to facilitate operations for our customers. We are very excited about new terminal opportunities in our pipeline that will be implementing our business philosophy to streamline operations.” At the heart of the modern supply chain YILPORT Holding High-end, integrated technologies YILPORT is the fastest-growing international terminal operator in the world, and its equipment can handle the world’s largest container vessels. It manages 17 million TEUs (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units or 20-foot containers) in 12 different countries. In 2022, it broke its all-time container handling record by growing 9%, a feat which is projected to be repeated this year. Clearly, operations of this magnitude can only function smoothly with the help of technology. The company’s linear processes have been built and improved with automation, easy communication tools based on EDI to exchange documents electronically, common platforms, and Web-based solutions and systems. “Our operations are managed centrally and embrace automation and the data-centric nature of the new industrial revolution,” said Dericioglu, Business Systems Director of YILDIRIM Group. “Industry 4.0 principles are applied to all systems, remote monitoring through IoT, and our cloud infrastructure. Our assets are already digitalized for the smart ports in the future.” To accelerate its journey to the intelligent enterprise and streamline its order-to-cash processes, YILPORT ran a pilot project at Gemport, one of its locations in Turkey, implementing the SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management solution with the help of SAP Specialist partner, Acuiti Labs. “We are using an advanced cloud-native solution developed by Acuiti that allows the end customers of SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management and SAP Subscription Billing to buy and self-manage their subscriptions,” he explained. “This tool has a special accelerator for port management that makes it easy to view invoices, make payments, raise disputes, and manage the subscription lifecycles, streamlining the entire process.” Long-lasting results The pilot implementation had three goals. The first was to automate invoice generation and empower customers through a new, self-service portal. The second was to ensure data consistency across systems for accurate invoicing, reducing disputes and revenue leakage, and the final goal was to provide a holistic 360-degree view of the customer’s financial data. At the close of the project, YILPORT boasted a fully operational end-to-end container line of business leveraging SAP Billing and Revenue Innovation Management’s best practices and a solution scalable enough to be rolled out to other ports in the region. Thanks to the use of innovative technology, YILPORT is well on its way to achieve its vision to become one of the top 10 global port operators by 2030. But technology is just one part of the story. The company is investing in low-carbon and energy-efficient practices to meet regulatory compliance and standards and to reduce waste in the operational environment. It is developing new business models together with customers and partners to provide an even wider range of port service offerings, and it maintains a strong focus on safety and training to reduce work-related injuries. Last but not least, YILPORT Holding takes a holistic approach to integrate sustainability within all aspects of its business. This approach is seen as essential to developing a robust business for the people, customers, environment and communities within the operating companies. All these actions combined are what give this company its transformative power and pioneering character. Follow me on Twitter @magyarj Follow me on Twitter .

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
