The world’s second-largest shipping line in terms of container vessel capacity, the Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. (MSC) is working in conjunction with their partner Traxens, a data and services provider for the supply chain industry on a pilot project in the Spanish city of Valencia to use an Internet-of-Things (IoT) network to enhance their operational efficiency at the port.

This project is being carried out alongside another project both companies are working on for smart container solutions using IoT for customers across the globe.

An unprecedented visibility of cargo flow from door-to-door can be achieved with the use of such real-time tracking technologies, this technology adds efficiency, safety and predictability where previous methods of chasing information had been time-consuming and expensive.

The new pilot project at the MSC Terminal Valencia is in cooperation with the Port Authority at the Port of Valencia and Fundacion Valenciaport (FVP). Starting in September 2018, the project aims to provide a better overview of traffic to help improve operational efficiency.

MSC Spain Intermodal Project Leader, Jaime Lopez said, “We have already used IoT devices by Traxens for tracking our containers and we believe that the functionality can really help port authorities in improving operations. This could bring benefits to all parties.”

MSC Spain trucks, as a part of the pilot project, have been fitted with dedicated IoT devices by Traxens, this allows for near real-time tracking of vehicle movements. This tracking feature will allow port authorities to predict and manage potential congestion issues, along with anticipating truck arrivals at the gates.

Traxens have also provided access to their data analytics platform, TRAXENS-Hub, this will offer enhanced analytics and reporting capabilities for all port authorities.
