Port and landside Logistics – 13th of November 11:15 am. 

Bringing new intelligence and efficiency to port logistics planning

VBS was developed to drive efficiencies by addressing the common issues shared by port communities around the world – the lack of transparent information flow, under-utilisation of equipment and inefficient practices. 1-Stop’s flagship product is the premier Terminal to Landside interface, currently active in 17 facilities and terminals across Australia, New Zealand and South East Asia.

Flexibility for terminal operators

1-Stop VBS provides the capability to optimise port operations. Our user-friendly digital interface – for desktop, mobile and tablet devices – is the ‘mediator’ of all messaging and information that is vital to port and freight operations.

VBS allows terminal operators to match terminal resources with landside demand. Terminals can configure timeslots, work-day calendars and business rules, and create and maintain customer details.

Minimising manual data entry and virtually eliminating time-consuming and error prone paperwork, VBS harness technology to streamline operations from ship to gate.

For example, when the quayside is busy, landside resources can be adjusted to support best use of equipment. Equally, when quayside activity is lower, landside operations can be ramped up to support clearing for the next vessel arrival.

More than just a booking system, VBS provides a complete terminal capacity management system, delivering benefits for terminal operators and freight carriers alike.

Equipment, fleet and human resources can be accurately matched to demand, spreading incoming vehicles and container movements over full 24 hour periods.
