Terminal improves efficiency by upgrading its TOS for the entire operation
IT Partner, part of the IT Partner Group, and the software vendor of choice for the Logistics and Maritime industry globally, has announced today together with VSH TRANSPORT, part of the VSH United Group with their headquarters in Paramaribo, Suriname that the operation of the Multi Cargo Terminal of VSH TRANSPORT is running on a stack of products from the CENTER SUITE. The implementation has successfully been completed with onsite support and remote assistance from IT Partner.
VSH TRANSPORT has been a customer of IT Partner for over a decade now. The products that VSH was using had been developed many years ago. IT Partner continued to use new tools and technologies for the different modules in their CENTER SUITE ensuring that the product offering stays up to date.
VSH TRANSPORT decided in 2020 that they too wanted to upgrade their entire operation. Because of the good relationship and outstanding performance of IT Partner, they once again choose IT Partner as their vendor of choice.
Sjoerd Poort, Managing Director of VSH TRANSPORT says:”
“Over the years IT Partner has proven to be a solid, reliable partner who knows our business and operations and the special characteristics of the world of Logistics. Our previous solution was working fine, a very practical system. However when I saw the very advanced possibilities of the newer versions of the CENTER SUITE products, I knew I wanted the advantages and could not afford to miss this opportunity of increasing our efficiency.”
The implementation includes the Mobile APP, Gate-, inspection- and more advanced weighing functions, graphical vessel- and yard planning and full control of Container Handling Equipment via the advanced Move Management Module. Via EDI Management VSH TRANSPORT connects to all external and internal stakeholders such as agencies and box operators.
“The CENTER SUITE products will help to reduce Truck Turnaround Time and the number of movers. It also provides more advanced tools for reporting, making it easier to manage the Multi Cargo terminal on a daily basis”, says Dennis Brommert Managing Director from IT Partner.
“Although we are able to do implementations completely remote, we now chose to have a team onsite and one in the Netherlands. In this way we were able to have a maximum reduction of the downtime of the terminal helping VSH TRANSPORT to deliver the excellent service they always provide to their customers. And that’s what we do as well, we deliver excellent products and services.”
