In Circle world
On 19th and 20th September Paweł Wojciechowski, the Rhine – Alpine Corridor European Coordinator, visits the Ligurian Ports. The visit is the opportunity to go deep into the knowledge of the Ligurian Port System and to meet the Institutions and the Operators. Specifically, among the other programs, there’s the welcome meeting at Sala dei Capitani (Genoa Port Authority, Palazzo San Giorgio) and a visit in the afternoon to the ports of Savona and Vado Ligure and the VIO Intermodal Terminal and Logistics centre. Circle took part to the welcome meeting and will be in the afternoon on 19th of September at Savona, as consultant of the Savona Port Authority for the development and management of co-funded projects. Among the themes that will be treated the effective integration of the multimodal system with the Core TEN-T Network to make easier the movements of the goods towards the intermodal and logistics hubs in the hinterland and the movement along the Corridors to the European destinations.
Milos (Making Intermodal Logistics Optimization Simple) is the solution by Circle for the optimization of processes with reference to port, logistic chain and intermodal transport fields.
The solution is made by modular applications able to manage the global Door-to-Door freight transport: TERMINAL AUTOMATION - a set of modules and connectors for automating and optimizing terminal operations. Milos modules and connectors allow both inland and port terminal operators automating and digitalizing truck/train gate information flows; MILOS – CUSTOMS MANAGEMENT- three specific modules has been developed for automatically managing the following registers: Temporary Storage Warehouse, Customs Warehouse and VAT Warehouse; MILOS – INTERMODAL CORRIDOR MANAGEMENT - innovative solutions for managing goods along intermodal corridors. The CORRIDOR MANAGEMENT module and its related connectors allows making interoperable information systems of stakeholder involved in the intermodal logistic process; MILOS – PCS / TOS INTEGRATION – the Port Community System (PCS) connector and the Terminal Operating System (TOS) connector in order to connect third systems (PCS, TOS, Rail Systems, MTO systems & Freight Forwarder etc.) respectively to PCS and TOS.
August is upon us and the thought of all is directed to the holidays: who’s going to the sea, who in the mountains or those who simply stay at home ..
Circle instead is going to become a Google Partner.
Marco Polo Programme aims to ease road congestion and its attendant pollution by promoting a switch to greener transport modes for European freight traffic. Railways, sea-routes and inland waterways have spare capacity. Particularly, given the foreseen upcoming increase of Liquefied natural gas (LNG) demand as cleaner marine fuel in the maritime industry due to expected restriction on emissions and prices opportunities, there is a clear training and building capacities need and interest from the sector’s stakeholders.
