MSC Belgium has introduced a new container release system that allows customers in the Port of Antwerp to collect their containers quickly in a secure environment.
The container release system offered by the Mediterranean Shipping Co. subsidiary enables users to log into an independent, secured portal Web site. The logging-in process includes an additional identification step, which the company said creates a secure network so that criminals have less opportunity to take advantage of business functions. Additionally, MSC Belgium customers can see which containers have been assigned to them, together with the status of the containers.
Customers will be able to continue using the old system until June 10, giving them about a month to get used to the new system.
