MILOS – Making Intermodal Logistics Optimization Simple
MILOS is the solution by Circle for managing containers, trailers, general cargo through the logistics-intermodal chain, in order to quickly sort goods arriving at the terminals and rapidly handle and trace them.
Circle offers 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; managing and optimizing rail and crane operations by using specific graphical interfaces and mathematical algorithms; digitalizing yard operation in ferries terminals; digitalizing the container weighing process in compliance with SOLAS requirements.
Circle has developed three specific modules has been developed for automatically managing the following registers: Temporary Storage Warehouse, Customs Warehouse and VAT Warehouse. Furthermore, eCUSTOMS and CUSTOMS CORRIDOR modules and connectors allow the digitalization and automation of Customs procedures (included the innovative fast corridor procedures) in compliance with the new European Union Customs Code.
Circle offers 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 INTERNET OF THING module allows managing electronic seals inside a terminal and within intermodal logistic chain in a door-to-door perspective in order to enhance visibility and security of goods.
Circle has developed 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. It is set up with some “general Web Services” (managing operative info., gate automation infos and customs infos) and it is already integrated with the main PCS and TOS.
