The platform will be deeply integrated into the goods release process wherein specific authorizations are required to
allow containers and goods to exit locations. In that regard, it replaces much of the traditionally physical documentation
utilized in these activities.
The PCS will digitize authorization documents from various stakeholders including Delivery Orders, Terminal Releases, Customs
Releases and Trucker Identification in addition to Truck Licensing and Registration. As such, Operational and Security personnel
handling trucks at the Terminals' entrance and exit gates can use the PCS to view, in one place, all the above authorizations.
This pertains to the collection of empty containers, delivery of export containers, collection of import containers and return
of empty containers.
Staff members vetting the movement of containers and goods through Terminal and Warehouse gates were traditionally tied to stacks
of paper proving authorization. With the added pressure of truckers demanding attention, they were also required to vet the
authenticity of documentation, ensuring clients’ goods were never delivered to the wrong parties and/or without due process.
The PCS will seek to simplify the vetting process for the workers handling and reviewing documentation at each location’s gates.
Given that the platform will be integrated with many stakeholders including Shipping Agents, Terminals, Customs and Licensing
Authorities, it will quickly and conveniently provide gate vetting staff with the information necessary to allow or disallow container,
goods and personnel movement through their gates. This will enable greater personal and business productivity.
