Mukran Port optimizes processes in the port
Sassnitz-Mukran July 15, 2016 - Mukran Port has opted for settlement of its processes to a new software. INPLAN Port Management Software aggregates a multitude of different functions which until now are operated individually in a central system. Consequently, all the service areas of the port will be more closely linked which contributes to a more efficient management of the port’s logistics processes. Due to the changeover, performance and flexibility of port and rail operations will be further enhanced and at the same time logistical bottlenecks will be minimized.
Harm Sievers, Managing Director of Fährhafen Sassnitz GmbH, believes the port location well equipped with the new software: „With INPLAN Port Management Software we are able to respond faster and more flexibly to new customer requirements. The software does not only shape the internal processes more efficiently, but also provides a closer link with our customers.“
Mukran Port will introduce gradually the new system. First, the software for port and rail operations will be introduced and subsequently expanded to the business areas of utilities and real estate. INPLAN Port Management software relies on proven functionalities to optimally map the port-specific services and customer requirements. At the same time the various analytical and statistical functions ensure ideal monitoring of processes.
The applications of the system are tailored to the requirements of Mukran Port. This includes modules for calculations / proposal preparation, traffics management (vessels and rail), warehouse management, real estate management and billing / invoicing for all business areas. Other modules can also be added according to future needs. This allows flexible and easily responds to changing future business conditions. An important aspect in the course of Mukran Port’s future positioning as a multi-functional port.
