Container Terminal Operators (CTOs), also known as stevedores, use electronic systems to manage their day to day operations.
They have electronic data interchange (EDI) links with key stakeholders, including 1-Stop, shipping lines, ships' agents, transport providers and Australian Customs Services.
1-Stop's CTO clients benefit from the following business advantages:
- improvements to receival and delivery operations;
- improved service to customers;
- better business practices; and
- reduced EDI development costs for electronic messaging.
Messaging Hub – we provide a common platform for electronic business communication. Users of the hub can transfer EDI messages in multiple formats to various parties of the supply chain.
Vehicle Booking System – the 1-Stop Vehicle Booking System (VBS) is a web based slot booking system designed to allow road carriers to organise the collection and delivery of containers at the wharf.
Maritime Security Identification Card (MSIC) – any person needing unescorted access within a maritime security zone is required to display an MSIC. Applications for an MSIC must be done through an approved issuing body. 1-Stop is a centralised facilitator of services to the international trade and logistics industry, having been granted this status by the Department of Transport and Regional Services (DoTaRS).
Payments and invoice solutions – we provide a fully integrated and paperless invoice solution that can electronically post VBS, storage and other related invoices on behalf of CTOs directly to customers. Invoices can be linked with our industry payment system known as ComPay, providing an online facility for customers to pay invoices anytime, anywhere: 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.
