Tecon Rio Grande and Tecon Salvador, located in Brazil, have become the first container terminals in Latin America to use XVELA’s cloud-based platform for collaborative planning.
XVELA, a maritime business network for ocean carriers and terminal operators, will enable the terminals to share real-time information on vessel call planning for improved operational efficiency.
Tecon Rio Grande and Tecon Salvador have joined dozens of terminals trialling XVELA’s latest solution in “Phase One” rollouts.
In this early adopter phase, the terminals will use the solution to collaborate with Log-in Logistica, a provider of door-to-door intermodal logistic services in Brazil and the Mercosur region.
According to a statement, XVELA’s early visibility can help terminal operators identify potential issues in advance and resolve them before they have a negative effect on the vessel operations, thus minimizing delays.
Both terminals are part of Wilson Sons Group, one of the largest port operators and logistics services in Brazil.
Tecon Rio Grande handles 98% of all container cargo that passes through the Port of Rio Grande due to its physical advantages and technology investments, while Tecon Salvador has also benefited from investments in technology and infrastructure.
Guy Rey-Herme, President of XVELA, commented: “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.
“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.”
