Sunoco Logistics will be deploying the platform at multiple terminals throughout the US.
TerminalSmart integrates dock management, scheduling, reporting and analytics with PortVision Automatic Identification System (AIS)-based vessel tracking services, and offers a predictive ETA of inbound vessels as well as real-time alerting of stakeholders based on dock schedule changes.
“PortVision’s TerminalSmart platform is expected to bring important capabilities to our business operations,” said Dave Chalson, Sunoco Logistics’ vice president of operations.
“It is anticipated that this product will help our marine transportation managers improve scheduling, vetting, logistics, loss control and demurrage management, and streamline and enhance activities associated with front-line dock activities and dock management.”
TerminalSmart also gives terminal operators access to PortVision’s database of both real-time and historical vessel movements based on AIS vessel-tracking data, combined with management, analysis and reporting tools to enhance terminal operations.
“We are pleased that Sunoco has selected TerminalSmart for its busy US terminal operations,” said Dean Rosenberg, PortVision chief executive officer.
“Sunoco Logistics is widely regarded as having among the most efficient and attractively located pipelines and terminals in the Gulf Coast, and we are committed to helping the company further improve operational performance with the TerminalSmart platform.”
