VICT NAMES 1-STOP AS THEIR PORT SOLUTIONS PROVIDER
1-Stop’s solution suite to be adopted by VICT to support automation and port community needs
Victoria International Container Terminal Ltd (VICT) has chosen to implement the wide range of port community solutions that 1-Stop Connections (1-Stop) have to offer. 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.
VICT’s CEO, Anders Dømmestrup says, “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.”
Mr. Dømmestrup went on to say that 1-Stop’s demonstrable track record in the provision of port community solutions is well positioned to meet VICT’s needs considering its high degree of automation.
“1-Stop’s collaboration with VICT will deliver benefits for all members of our port community,” says Michael Bouari, CEO of 1-Stop.
“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.
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 months,” says Mr. Bouari.
VICT is a subsidiary of International Container Terminal Services Inc. (ICTSI), an international operator of container terminals serving the global container shipping industry. ICTSI is the largest port operator in the Philippines and has a portfolio of 29 container terminal operations in 20 countries across six continents.
Based at Port of Melbourne’s Webb Dock East, VICT will operate Melbourne’s 3rd international container terminal as well as the empty container park which is connected to the terminal.
