New terminal management system for Cuxport

New terminal management system for Cuxport
The digital networking of ports is progressing at high speed and Logistics 4.0 is already a term that is familiar to many people. Cuxport too is relying on digitalisation and is starting to develop a state-of-the-art digital management system for its multi-purpose terminals in Cuxhaven from July onwards.

dbh Logistics IT AG, a leading company for software and consultancy work in the fields of customs and foreign trade, transport management, the port industry, compliance, SAP and cloud services, has been selected as the partner for introducing the system. The current basic modules of “Advantage portos”, a software series related to the port industry and the provider’s connections further inland, are being adapted to the special requirements of the multi-purpose terminals in close cooperation with the Cuxport users.

The new terminal management system includes the organisation and supervision of all the handling and warehouse processes and enables an electronical exchange of data with customers like shipping companies, freight forwarders and shippers – as well as with public authorities like the customs services and Niedersachsen Ports, the seaport’s operator.

The goal is to make the processes at the terminal much slimmer and more efficient. The system is also designed to simplify current administration as a result of the mobile process controls and the high degree of connectivity with partners. “Equally, the aim is to map the huge and growing spectrum of services at a multi-purpose port at a system level, as the market demands – and with a view to the ongoing process of digitalisation during the next few years,” says Mario Juranz, Project Manager at Cuxport. “We’re taking the next step with a web-based order and material management system and extensive gate automation – and our partners will benefit from this too.”

“Our business and freight volumes are growing constantly and this will increase all the more as a result of the completion of our new berth 4 in the middle of 2018. Alongside this, we’re investing in the future viability and efficiency of our processes and terminal logistics with the state-of-the-art management system,” says Peter Zint, Managing Director of Cuxport. “As a result, we’re freeing up resources and creating the capacity for new business.”

Following a kick-off workshop in June, the system will now be further adapted and put into service. The plans envisage completion of this process by August 2018.

„We’re very happy to support Cuxport in the all-round digitalisation of its logistics chains. We’re already making available an excellent basis for handling the special requirements at Cuxport through our ‘portos Lagerei’ and ‘portos Terminal’ software modules,”
says Karin Steffen-Witt, Port Solutions Project Manager at dbh.
