DP World Southampton to Launch Vehicle Booking System

DP World Southampton to Launch Vehicle Booking System

Container terminal DP World Southampton, which operates at the Port of Southampton in England, will launch a vehicle booking system, called VBS Premium, on Jan. 1, 2013.

“The aim of VBS Premium is to make the back office management of containers and bookings easier, making the transport booking process even more productive,” said Steve McCrindle, the terminal’s head of operations.

The system allows haulers to upload lists of containers so they can be tracked automatically for booking status, manage containers and bookings, combine containers and appointments, show appointment availability in real time and determine the container’s expected location in the terminal.
