APM Terminals Buenos Aires (APMT Buenos Aires) has launched cargo tracking app as part of efforts to digitalise operations and make trade more efficient.
In a statement, APMT Buenos Aires said the app had been launched because of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has forced ports, terminals and other stakeholders in the supply chain to improve operations.
The pandemic has caused congestion at many of the world’s most important hubs for containerised trade and in response some of chosen to invest in technologies to cope with the fluctuations of traffic.
With the launch, APMT Buenos Aires said it is continuing to redouble its digitalization plans and channel the largest number of face-to-face procedures on digital platforms.
The tracking app was developed entirely locally and will help improve customer experience. It will let customers download cargo documentation and permits, trace containers and ships through the port and find out about upcoming arrivals.
Gimena Sergiotti, Head of the Commercial Team of APM Terminals Buenos Aires, commented, “We are proud to begin 2021 by renewing ourselves, presenting a new technological development designed in Argentina, to be a better, safer, more modern and digital port every day.”
