Unisys announced today it has completed the “Intelligent cargo” project with Brazil’s Secretariat of Ports, which is a study to monitor cargo operations and bring improvements to the import, export and navigation processes at Brazilian maritime ports and logistics chains.
The study recommended improvements which include increased coordination between the organizations responsible for cargo processing and inspection, an increase in the redundancy and waste associated with paper-based manual processes, more sharing of data, etc.
“The Intelligent Project Cargo represents an important step int he standardization of business processes, deployment of on-container tracking devices and sharing of information among stake holders involved in Brazil’s port’s logistics chain,” said Steve Soroka, managing partner of Homeland Security for Unisys Federal Systems.
Intelligent Cargo was established in 2010 to simplify port procedures, help reduce the amount of time cargo and ships spend in Brazilian ports, improve the sharing of cargo data, and make import and export operations more efficient.
