Hutchison Ports BEST in Barcelona, Spain, has launched Hutchison Ports ubi – a mobile application that is capable of tracking arrival and departure schedules of ships, trains, containers and trucks at the port.
Hutchison Ports BEST is the first semi-automated terminal in the Hutchison Ports.
Available to BEST users, Hutchison Ports said that the system provides transparency of information and agility in decision making to reduce operating times in the logistics chain. The app is also updated with real time developments or incidents that arise in the terminal.
With the application, the truck door process is digitised, allowing paperless tracking of operations. More specifically, the driver can view the PINCODE, before entering the terminal, to know when he can pick up or deliver his container and receive the gate tickets on his mobile phone.
The application is aimed at all terminal users, including shipping lines, rail operators, freight forwarders, transport companies, importers/exporters and truck drivers. It is free and available on the App Store and Google Play.
