1-Stop solution for port operations

A new ‘thought-changing’ technology has been developed which aims to make the coordination of container movements more efficient in the supply chain.

1-Stop Modal (Modal), developed by 1-Stop Connections (1-Stop) is a tailor-made electronic gate and inventory management solution which brings together container park/yards, depot, shipping lines, terminal, carrier and rail operations.

Michael Bouari, CEO, 1-Stop, said: “In these challenging times, where being competitive as a business relies in being efficient and maximising your asset utilisation, 1-Stop has embraced this productivity mindset to partner with stakeholders in the industry to turn challenges into opportunities.”

He said that some of benefits that can be attained by using the Modal system include a reduction in queue times, truck turnaround times and dwell times. Benefits also include increased throughput, utilisation and co-ordination across the whole supply chain.

Mr Bouari explained that Modal has been created in collaboration with and in direct response to the community’s needs and requirements.

It is one of several new solutions that will be rolled out over the next 18 months which focus on connecting and co-ordinating the logistics chain.

One Australian facility is already using 1-Stop Modal with more customers expected to be using Modal by the end of 2017.
