Case Study

Project Title

Company Overview

The Port of New Orleans is a deep-draft multipurpose port at the center of the world’s busiest port system – Louisiana’s Lower Mississippi River. Port NOLA owns a maritime industrial park with over 1,000 acres of properties that lease under long and short term agreements. The properties are zoned for heavy and light maritime industrial uses including shipbuilding and repair, warehouse and distribution, truck and container depots, basic materials handling, cement handling, steel distribution, refrigerated warehousing, manufacturing, packaging and transloading. 

Challenge

  • The Port needed a process to quote leases which include term fees and also variable usage fees, such as water usage, or freight volume.

  • A process to generate periodic lease and usage invoices was required.

  • The Port was experiencing manual processes that were error prone.

  • The invoice revenue recognition is spread monthly across the invoice term. Many leases are annual amounts.

  • The Port required a solution deployed within 90 days

  • The Port had a constrained budget to complete the project within.
