APM invests in MOST

APM Terminals Callao has introduced the MOST customer platform to log, streamline and coordinate general cargo operations at the Peruvian port.

The implementation of the MOST platform represents an investment of nearly USD1 million. It can be used to register cargo and view real-time information; make online payments; and generate authorisations for the loading and unloading of all types of general cargo.

During the pilot phase, APM Terminals said that users were able to complete transactions 67 percent faster when using the platform.

Customs agents will be able to assign a load to transport companies, while others can plan and coordinate equipment and personnel. APM Terminals added that terminals can allocate yard and quay resources.

The interface can also be used to monitor movements in the port, warehouses and onboard vessels.

“With volumes growing rapidly, this investment in the MOST platform provides general cargo customers with greater accessibility, versatility, speed, safety and efficiency for their foreign trade operations,” said APM Terminals.

This year, the multipurpose terminal also completed a USD2 million investment in storage improvements.
