The company PACOCI
PACOCI is a company owned by the Bolloré Group and APMT50/50. It is based in Abidjan and its main activity is the repair of dry and reefer containers. They also do a bit of container stuffing on their fleet.
The repair activity consists of inspecting empty containers and according to the necessary repairs produce a quote to the container operator. If this quote is accepted, repairs are undertaken. They therefore mainly manage empty containers.
The company’s expectations
They called on TGI to find a solution for the management of their repair terminal. OSCAR, which is adaptable to repair terminals, would allow them to computerize their data and have a better follow-up of the activities of the PACOCI terminal.
* Identify containers at the entrance and exit of the depot in real time
* Track the status of the container (to be repaired, start repair, end of repair) in real time
* Commissioning machines for container movements
* Locate containers on their fleet
* Streamline operations in general
* Send EDI messages to their customers to inform them of the entry or exit of containers.
The solution provided by TGI
OSCAR is the TOS chosen to meet the needs of the site because it makes it possible to digitize the entire container management cycle on the terminal. From the entry to the exit of the container on the terminal, all movements and operations on the container are recorded in the system in real time and make it possible to optimize the rest of the process.
During the study phase, we define the process mapping that will be configured in a strictly according to the company’s wishes. These processes are accompanied in the system by management rules that will make it possible to accelerate operations and improve their management and control.
The site started on the new system in September 2021. From Go live, data is actually collected and processed in real time in OSCAR. The management of operations is carried out from the control room. The containers are tracked from the entrance gate to their final exits from the park. The stock on the park is up to date in real time. Beyond the gains related to the industrialization of the processes resulting from this implementation (listed below), a gain on the security of the terminal was also observed (less travel on the terminal)
* Better flow control
* Increased productivity
* Reduced wait times
* Availability of information in real time
* Automatic reporting
* Automatic data exchange with partners
* Remote monitoring of activities
* Better billing management
