ITS: Enhancing Future Freight Productivity tour

ITS logo The world’s leading transport technology event is being held in Melbourne, Australia this year.

Boasting over 9,000 attendees and 300 exhibitors from 60 countries, it is one of the largest gathering of IT professionals from various sectors in the community.

With the theme this year of “Enhancing Liveable Cities and Communities”, the 23rd ITS World Congress is an opportunity to learn more about how automated and connected vehicles, road safety, big data and smart transport technology will help make our roads safer and influence the way we, and future generations, will get around.
As the leader in port community solutions, 1-Stop were invited to host a select group of delegates on a tour and visit to a terminal in the Port of Melbourne. The site visit enabled the visualisation on how 1-Stop’s innovative solutions has had a positive impact on the Australian community.
1-Stop has been a long-time provider of efficiency solutions to the logistics community. By pioneering an online bookings system for the terminals, 1-Stop has delivered ongoing innovation to the containerised community, removing hundreds of millions of dollars in inefficiency. 1-Stop introduced and standardised electronic messaging for various supply chain participants which has resulted in a paperless gate and automated access controls.

The tour included a visit to Swanson Dock West (operate by DP World Australia). Delegates gained insights on container yard operations and truck movements through the port, and saw first hand how 1-Stop’s Vehicle Booking System (VBS) is used as a tool to drive productivity amongst the port community.

Delegates were also shown how the VBS’s proactive pre-gate access timeslot bookings system enables better transparency in information flow among which enhances terminal capacity management.
