Port productivity specialist 1-Stop Connections (1-Stop) is to showcase its flagship product, the Vehicle Booking System (VBS) — a premier system for the terminal to landside interface, at TOC Europe from 27 – 28 June.
The terminal capacity management system removes congestion from roads, while streamlining processes inside the terminal.
Greg Winstanley, who has worked on DP World’s past projects with landside interfaces, will show attendees how VBS works in one of the busiest terminals in Australia.
Winstanley knowledge and application of the VBS has resulted in reducing truck turnaround times, delivering consistencies and productive movement of containers to the supply chain.
1-Stop has claimed that his expertise has helped to produce the most productive and best landside interface in Australia.
The company has reported that port communities have benefited through a reduction in queue and truck turn times because of VBS.
According to 1-Stop’s data, truck queue times at some terminals have been reduced from 2 to 4-hours, and in some cases, trucks have to wait no time at all.
At some terminals, the truck turn times have been reduced from 91 minutes to 37 minutes and there has been a 30% decrease in dwell times in the first 2 weeks of operation.
1-Stop has also reported increased throughput, with terminals experiencing a 35% improvement in truck servicing in the first four weeks of implementation.
Trucking companies have claimed that they're experiencing up to five times more utilisation per truck and increased co-ordination across the whole supply chain.
Winstanley commented: “The VBS is the single most powerful and important tool to any Terminal. It is not just a Booking System but a complete information hub.
“Carriers have a very low TTT and Importers and Exporters have ended up with a much cheaper and efficient supply chain.”
