IT developer ROLIS, part of the Global Ports Group, has partnered with TransContainer PJSC to implement the Conterra IT system developed by ROLIS for management of the Chita-1 container terminal.
In a statement, the terminal operator said ROLIS will implement Conterra with a set of IT solutions at TransContainer’s terminal in Chita, which is in Zabaykalsky in Russia’s Far East.
This will facilitate the online management of the container yard, an internet portal for the pool of road carriers and vehicle supply, and online regulation of the reception and loading of containers onto trucks and flatcars at the terminal. The system will also automate the formation of shipping documents.
Terminal departments will be able to export data from Conterra easily and swiftly and provide clients with updates on container status and operations with containers. Conterra will be integrated with TransContainer’s existing solutions, including the billing system, as well as the technological systems of Russian Railways.
Igor Yakovenko, General Director – First Executive Vice President of LLC Management Company Delo, said, “The longterm strategic priorities of Delo Group include the development of innovative digital solutions and the implementation of commercial and operational synergies across the Group’s assets.
“I am confident, this IT-partnership of Global Ports and TransContainer will become a successful example of such developments”.
Albert Likholet, CEO of Global Ports Management LLC, also commented, “In 2020, Global Ports and TransContainer successfully launched several commercial services for customers.
“Now we are expanding this cooperation and are planning to implement a modern IT system by our IT developer, ROLIS, at one of the TransContainer terminals.
“I am sure that the pilot project will prove efficient, and the wide network of TransContainer’s terminals will create an opportunity for scaling up our technological partnership”.
Alexander Isurin, president of TransContainer, was quoted as saying, “We are focused on increasing the efficiency of our operations and expect that the implementation of the Conterra IT system will not only increase the speed of container processing but also reduce terminal costs through better planning and the optimisation of our cargo and yard operations.”
