APM Terminals Callao (APMT Callao) has become the Peruvian port to introduce a digital customer platform that logs, streamlines and coordinates General Cargo operations in the port of Callao.
According to a statement, the platform, titled MOST, and in which APMT has invested approximately US$1 million, is a state-of-the-art platform that can be used by maritime agents, customs agencies and carrier, among many others.
It can be used to register cargo and view real-time information, make online payments and generate authorizations for the loading and unloading of all types of General Cargo from any location and at any time.
During the pilot phase, the time needed to complete transactions and operations were cut by 67% and 12% respectively.
APMT Callao is Peru’s largest multipurpose terminal and is handles for 40% of the country’s total container traffic and more than 70% of Peru’s non-containerized general cargo.
With volumes growing rapidly, this investment in the MOST platform provides General Cargo customers with greater accessibility, versatility, speed, safety and efficiency for their foreign trade operations.
In a statement, APMT said: “MOST provides a clear graphical interface for monitoring operative movements in the port, warehouses and onboard vessels.
“It provides the status of the cargo in terms of quantities, weights, detailed location and dispatch. Furthermore, its vessel schedule shows real-time vessel berthing and departure times.”
