Brazilian shipping company Wilson Sons is investing BRL 1.4 million (USD 280k) to strengthen operational efficiency at Rio Grande Container Terminal.

Specifically, the investment will include establishing a Terminal Operation Centre, designed to bolster operational intelligence and streamline data analysis processes, as reported by DatamarNews.

This initiative will see the creation of an operational intelligence data analysis cell, facilitating more efficient operational planning and ultimately leading to improved delivery of yard and ship operations.

Central to the center‘s infrastructure is a video wall, serving as a focal point for displaying key performance indicators (KPIs) in real-time. This enables enhanced visibility into operational and management processes, particularly concerning operational automation. By consolidating operational systems under unified governance, this initiative aims to drive efficiency gains and promote modernization, ultimately fostering higher levels of productivity.

Additionally, Wilson Sons’ investment portfolio includes the establishment of a Maintenance Control Centre. This center will leverage Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to facilitate real-time asset tracking, thereby enhancing data visibility crucial for decision-making processes. Key benefits of this initiative include the integration of equipment telemetry and alerts, streamlined maintenance tracking, improved operational safety, comprehensive record-keeping of analyses and failures, reduction of fixed assets in stock, and enhanced equipment availability for maintenance purposes.
