Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), which is owned and operated by International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI), has announced that it has chosen to implement 1-Stop Connections’ port community solutions.
PTI previously reported that one of ICTSI’s other terminals in Laguna, The Philippines, has recently began its expansion of new facilities that aim to store empty and loaded containers.
1-Stop is already the system of choice at the Port of Melbourne, where the terminal and logistics community have benefited over the years from 1-Stop’s port community solutions. This recent signing between 1-Stop and VICT will result in continual productivity improvements and optimised operations for the future.
Anders Dømmestrup, CEO at VICT, said: “We wanted an efficient, effective and easy-to-use solution to service the Melbourne port community, which could be implemented seamlessly to match our go-live by the end of 2016. We also regard 1-Stop’s solution as scalable, robust and best in class.”
Michael Bouari, CEO of 1-Stop, said: “Our mission is to optimise the movement of cargo, and we’ve witnessed what happens when this mantra is adopted. Truck queues and traffic congestion is greatly reduced because workloads are spread across peak and off-peak times.
“Guesswork is removed when data integrity is upheld and maintained, especially when this data is shared and accessible to members.
Michael Bouari concluded: “1-Stop’s port community solution comes in the form of a unique suite of services which promotes efficiency, and will be integrated into VICT’s systems over the coming month.”
ICTSI exhibited a solid financial result in Q1, 2015 with a 19% revenue increase from the same period in 2014.
This result comes shortly after ICTSI’s decision to sell 90,000 shares in Naha International Container Terminal, Japan for around US$880,000.
