In addition to state-of-the-art infrastructure and modern management systems implemented to provide integrated port logistics solutions to its clients, DP World Santos uses the NAVIS logistics planning system, one of the most modern in the world. NAVIS integrates specific software for making reservations in the yard and planning container logistics and placement on the ships, grouping containers by order of handling in the Ports.
The system also enables cargo management from the reservation of the parking spot by the truck company, recognition and guiding of the driver entering the terminal, parking of the truck and entering the loading area to the ship.
The compound also counts with Gates that guarantee the celerity and automation of the whole process, and the identification of the drivers by a biometry system and BDCC (system of identification for customs enclosures). Control of incoming and outgoing vehicles and cargo will be done by Optical Character Recognition (OCR), which verifies the truck plate number, container number and driver information, allowing for automatic access, provided that the vehicle is properly scheduled for the time.
