POLO – Port Activity App

Port call information at your fingerstips

POLO – Port Activity App provides a new toolset for ports to improve the overall efficiency of port flow, covering the end-to-end chain of actions and operations related to vessel visit. It is a user interface for port digitalization and communication based on open ecosystem and open interfaces, strengthening collaboration both inside the port community and between ports.

It creates an ecosystem for awareness, automation and autonomous operations using four layers:

  • Knowledge: a centralized place of information and common situational awareness
  • Communication: a digital toolchain replacing traditional phone calls and emails
  • Workflow: enabling a shared workflow for efficient port operations and extended planning horizon
  • Intelligence: optimizing business operations with real-time data analytics and AI


POLO – Port Activity App is developed in collaboration with ports and port professionals, supporting all hands-on port operations. A native mobile application is available for port actors on the move.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.


POLO – Port Activity App integrates all port area functions in a timely manner, providing a virtual operation room for port operations. The solution can be leveraged in all types of ports regardless of their systems or operating procedures.

We are constantly developing the application further based on the requirements from ports. We have open interfaces for any new system to be integrated. The stability of integrations is secured with Aino.io based monitoring system.
