DP World San Antonio has become the first terminal in Chile to implement the latest version of Identec Solutions’ Reefer Runner and becomes the third in South America to do so.
DP World San Antonio was established in 2011 and is one of Chile’s largest and most modern multipurpose port terminals.
With an annual capacity of 1.25 million TEU, it offers a strategic location for importers and exporters and has experienced significant growth its expansion in 2015, thanks in no small part to its highly strategic location.
It has in the past four years been looking for ways to reduce the workload of Reefer Management by automating monitoring and capturing energy data.
Maurico Argandona, Senior Operations Manager, DP World San Antonio, reacted:
“The implementation of an automated reefer monitoring and management tool was important to our company because it allows these activities to be done remotely,” he said.
Further benefits of the system, according to Argandona, are that it minimizes “all risks related to injuries to personnel” and provides “information online, making operations more robust and finally allows detailed measurement of the consumption of each type of refrigerated cargo, which delivers us valuable information to perform carbon footprint analysis by type of load”.
