The Group's container terminals Tecon Rio Grande and Tecon Salvador will, as the first in Latin America, work with XVELA as early adopters of the company's cloud collaboration platform.
According to XVELA, early visibility can help terminal operators identify potential issues in advance and resolve them before they have a negative effect on the vessel operations. This includes real-time notifications of any mismatch between the carrier's stowage plan and actual stowage execution, such as a hazardous box in a non-hazardous slot, so potentially costly mistakes can be corrected before load operations are complete, reducing the risk of ships not sailing on time.
The terminals will use the solution to collaborate with Log-in Logistica, a provider of cabotage door-to-door intermodal logistic services in Brazil and the greater Mercosur region (apart from Brazil also Argentina, Paraguay, and Uruguay).
"As the first terminal operators in Latin America to use XVELA, Tecon Rio Grande and Tecon Salvador demonstrate that they are leading the way toward a more reliable and service-oriented supply chain," Guy Rey-Herme, President, XVELA, said.He furthered, "By working directly with their ocean carrier customers through XVELA's business network, Tecon Rio Grande and Tecon Salvador, along with any carriers calling at these terminals, can benefit from a win-win collaboration that drives greater efficiency, higher resource utilization, and better service for all parties."
