Tuesday, November 13, 2012

PortVision to provide Sunoco Logistics with TerminalSmart dock management system and vessel-tracking services software.

PortVision® has signed a three-year agreement with Sunoco Logistics to provide the company with its TerminalSmart™ platform, which integrates dock management, scheduling, reporting and analytics with the PortVision Automatic Identification System (AIS)-based vessel tracking services.

TerminalSmart is the industry’s first web-based service platform that integrates vessel tracking, dock management, and analysis in a single, convenient operational dashboard for marine terminal operators. TerminalSmart supports dock scheduling, comprehensive dock activity logging, and business intelligence reporting. The platform provides real-time operational benefits such as predictive ETA of inbound vessels, and real-time alerting of stakeholders based on dock schedule changes.
 
TerminalSmart also gives terminal operators access to PortVision’s comprehensive database of both real-time and historical vessel movements based on AIS vessel-tracking data, and combines it with powerful management, analysis and reporting tools to enhance terminal operations.
 
“"PortVision’s TerminalSmart platform is expected to bring important capabilities to our business operations,”" said Dave Chalson, Sunoco Logistics’ vice president of operations.  "“It is anticipated that this product will help our marine transportation managers improve scheduling, vetting, logistics, loss control and demurrage management, and streamline and enhance activities associated with front-line dock activities and dock management.” Sunoco Logistics will be deploying the TerminalSmart platform at multiple terminals throughout the U.S."
