arl-shipping.com launched cloud based collaborative planning, optimization and performance measurement apps for container terminal operators. The tools are instantly available via a web interface and a zero investment, pay-as-you-go usage scheme entailing little or no own terminal technical infrastructure and IT management tasks, and no complex technical deployment project.
The business services tools are provided against a low monthly usage fee -typically a few hundred Euros per month- and a volume dependant transaction fee -typically 1-2 Euros. All apps are accessible from mobile devices like handhelds and mobile phones, and all apps are prepared for collaboration. The terminal users can share selected information with internal stakeholders, external partners like customers or suppliers, or publish on own public website or to corporate Facebook and Twitter accounts.
All data transfer from the terminal TOS to the hosted platform is safe-guarded by embedded encryption and business transaction and collaborative services are provided on arl-shipping.com’s cloud servers secured by personal credentials.
