“Mitigating cost components, improving asset lifecycle and enhancing overall process efficiency at ports and terminals are few of the outcomes of cost-effective ports and terminal services. Interfacing fuel management data with ERP systems will lead to valuable insights across different industry verticals.”
The use of diesel-powered equipment in ports is widespread and mainly due to efficiency, performance, and reliability. Moving millions of containers through port terminals requires millions of litres of diesel. Terminals typically mitigate cost components and improve asset utilisation, and process efficiency through data analytics. Part of ensuring a seamless and cost effective ‘Moment of Service’ to customers at yards, quaysides, and gates requires the accurate monitoring, analysis, and management of fuel consumption data, as well as real-time terminal ERP system integration.
To meet this challenge, Envecon, Gold Channel Partner to IFS & industry’s leading software solutions provider to more than 150+ ports and terminals globally, has established a strategic partnership with Ressource Solutions, a leading industrial fuel management solutions provider in Africa. This endeavor will provide bespoke, state of the art fuel management modules, as a part of their ERP solutions, to the global ports and terminals, and logistics market segments.
For Envecon, this partnership will further enhance their port and terminal ERP solutions which are used by more than 30,000+ users, globally. It also brings additional value to their existing clients as they will now have access to accurate fuel data and better cost management.
“The ability to provide additional fuel management functionality to our customers that seamlessly integrates with our ERP Systems, will strengthen the benefits for our customers.” – Vincent Elfring, SVP, Envecon and LogStar.
For Ressource Solutions this further extends the reach of their popular, sophisticated, fuel management solutions to ports and terminals. It also brings additional value to their existing port and terminal client in terms of access to Envecon’s ERP systems.
“Being part of Envecon’s outstanding ERP offering is a natural fit for Ressource Solutions and will assist port and terminal operators to identify fuel management issues, implement corrective actions and optimise the use of fuel.” – Deon Mostert, Head – Business Development, Ressource Solutions.
