Digitalisation is reality with a new great milestone done at the Port of Le Havre

Last October 29th, the giant of the seas MSC MIRJAM owned by MSC, the second largest liner shipping company of the World, is on operation at Terminal de Normandie Port 2000.

Prior to her arrival on Le Havre waters and until she was docked, the Harbour master has monitored in real time the entire process and has anticipated all the operations related to the movement of the ship within its S-WING software. The effectiveness of interoperability with SOGET’s Port Community System has allowed to a fully dematerialized processing of imported cargo, in direct partnership with French Customs.

In the presence of a press & TV media audience, the Deputy Harbor Master, Alexandre Guyot demonstrated from the Harbor HQ Tower the 3D S-Wing vessel traffic management tool in full interconnection with the Port Community System S)ONE and praised "an exceptional collaborative work that allows digital seamless connectivity between all the stakeholders in the transport logistics chain, for better predictability".

According to Antoine Berbain, Delegate General Manager of HAROPA, "the future is in the digitization of port services to bring ever faster, more efficient, intelligent and secure flow of goods. These new generations of port IT tools, interconnected and developed along with the supply chain stakeholders, are encompassed into the "Smart Corridor" approach promoted by HAROPA: "the modernization of the Port Community System is part of this initiative. Our common ambition, throughout the Seine axis, is to provide a better service to our customers by offering a 100% digital call and paperless procedures".
