zoom Philippine-based container terminal owner and operator International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI) has chosen 1-Stop Connections (1-Stop) system for its Australian subsidiary Victoria International Container Terminal Ltd (VICT).1 -Stop is already the system of choice at the Port of Melbourne. This recent signing between 1 -Stop and VICT will result in continual productivity improvements and optimised operations for the future, 1-Stop says.”We wanted an efficient, effective and easy-to-use solution to service the Melbourne port community, which could be implemented seamlessly to match our go-live by the end of 2016. We also regard 1-Stop’s solution as scalable, robust and best in class,” VICT’s CEO Anders Dommestrup said.Dommestrup went on to say that 1 -Stop’s track record in the provision of port community solutions is well positioned to meet VICT’s needs considering its high degree of automation.”Our mission is to optimise the movement of cargo, and we’ve witnessed what happens when this mantra is adopted,” said Michael Bouari, CEO of 1-Stop. ”Truck queues and traffic congestion is greatly reduced because workloads are spread across peak and off-peak times. Guesswork is removed when data integrity is upheld and maintained, especially when this data is shared and accessible to members. 1-Stop’s port community solution comes in the form of a unique suite of services which promotes efficiency, and will be integrated into VICT’s systems over the coming months.”
A group of environmentalists in Hamilton staged a day of action today.They’re trying to win support for their stand that oil trains and oil pipelines are dangerous for our communities.They’re trying to win public support and at the same time tackle the federal government. They’re fighting the government’s efforts to ship more oil to market from the oil sands in northern Alberta.“Protect our climate. Protect our climate.”The protesters shouted Saturday afternoon with a mock up of a freight train made up of oil tankers and driven by a Prime Minister who promotes the Alberta oil sands.They took their message to the Federal Government’s main building in the city.One of their concerns is the possibility of another Lac Megantic disaster of exploding train cars carrying oil.Environmentalist, Don McLean says, “We need to defend our communities and defend our climate and in Hamilton’s situation one of the key pieces is oil trains running through our city.”The protesters also say Canada should stop focusing on shipping and burning oil for fuel and think instead about energy alternatives and turning around climate change.And even more concerns about oil pipelines like Line 9 in Northern Hamilton.Environmentalist, Jim Quinn elaborated, “we do not need pipelines. what we need is another source of energy. we need another source of economy and we need to be building our green economy.”They say it won’t be easy to cut off oil use, but Canada can’t keep going in the direction it’s going in.As part of a national day of action to defend the climate, they say protesters were planning to make the same in demonstrations in 100 cities across Canada on Saturday, May 10th.
