Melbourne International RoRo & Automotive Terminal’s (MIRRAT) new booking system at Wallenius Wilhelmsen‘s Melbourne terminal provides real-time information on the status of cargo, helping to keep the supply chain running smoothly.
By communicating real-time information on the status of cargo moving through MIRRAT, the system allows truck operators to better plan their journeys, helping to prevent delays. This has a positive impact for OEMs and freight forwarders as it ensures cargo is being delivered and collected according to schedule.
The booking system allows transport operators to book a collection or delivery slot in advance online. This means that on arrival to the terminal, truck operators can bypass the current administration process and proceed directly to the gate, guaranteeing much faster turnaround times.
Jed Smith, Head of Commercial and Stakeholder Management at the facility, said, “This tool facilitates the industry wide collaboration needed to drive efficiency improvement and communication between transport operators and MIRRAT. Better understanding of who is collecting what and when, benefits all terminal users through improved traffic management, informed planning and reduced turnaround times, which all lead to efficiency gains.”
