Perishable goods are of high monetary value, so the proper care and monitoring of the containers during their stay at the terminal is vital for both the shipping line, and the importer / exporter client. With the implementation of the automatic monitoring of containers, there is an availability of real time information of the containers temperature, receiving immediate alerts of any modification or alteration of the programmed temperature, allowing immediate action in the repair of the container.

We have implemented an innovative new service called Pre webcam that will provide our customers an excellent tool offering certainty and transparency of the services provided to the given trust to us in the handling of their products. Likewise the “Previous Tracking” where the customs agent will be able to know the status of its container during the revision, showing all the times of the operations, from the placement of the container in the prior area until its closing and confirmation. With the implementation of the maintenance based on the reliability of the RCM methodology, it raises the standard of the care quality that the used port equipments receive in the handling of containerized cargo.
