Hutchison Ports ubi, one step further in digitalisation and sustainability at BEST
18 MAR 2021
Hutchison Ports BEST has launched a mobile app, Hutchison Ports ubi, taking a step further towards digitisation and sustainability of the logistics chain. The app has several functionalities, such as tracking (arrival and departure schedules) of ships, trains, containers and trucks operating at BEST.
Hutchison Ports ubi is a new channel that is available to BEST users. It provides transparency of information and agility in decision-making to favour the reduction of operating time in the logistics chain. In addition, it is updated with real-time developments or incidents that arise in the terminal.
It is an application developed by the Hutchison Ports and rolled out to each terminal. The application is called ubi, referring to the Latin term “ubique”, which means “ubiquitous”, i.e. everywhere at all times.
With this application, the truck door process is digitised, allowing paperless tracking of operations, avoiding physical contact in times of pandemic. More specifically, the driver can view the PINCODE, before entering the terminal, to know when he can pick up or deliver his container and receive the gate tickets on his mobile phone.
Additionally, Hutchison Ports ubi alerts users any changes in the status of ships, trains and containers that have been selected to follow.
This application is aimed at all terminal users, including shipping lines, rail operators, freight forwarders, transport companies, importers/exporters and even the truck driver himself.
The Hutchison Ports ubi app is free and available now on the App Store and Google Play.
