Dunkirk’s AP+ Cargo Community System began operation in April
GECOM president Patrick Nerrière and François Mahé des Portes, president of the MGI executive board, have signed an implementation contract for the AP+ Cargo Community System (CCS) at the Port of Dunkirk, France.
The AP+ CCS, which began operation on April 2nd, replaced GECOM’s Gemini port information system following a successful month-long training period by MGI, which involved as many as 259 employees including shipping and forwarding agents, handlers, customs and the harbour master's operatives.
“This signing formalises the collaborations taking place in the field between all private and public actors operating on behalf of the port community and the MGI teams,” said François Mahé des Portes.
Dunkirk, the third largest port in France after Le Havre and Marseille, handles containers, general cargo, bulk shipments and ro-ro vessels. Since the launch, AP+ import, export and transshipment modules have been installed.
AP+ is the first tri-modal CCS integrating land, sea and air transport processes.
