SEA: Agri-bulk delivery system

Project leader

The Systems and Information Department and the Commercial and Business Development Department of the Port of Tarragona.

Project description

SEA, Agri-bulk delivery system  is the system that facilitates the purchaser and the transporter  the collection of goods from the agri-bulk terminals that the Tarragona Port Authority makes available to the various agents involved in the process. It works as follows:

The purchaser requests  a volume from the  terminal for a given date  and the terminal indicates the availability of the goods.  The  transporter receives the order and location, chooses the available time slot and indicates the truck that will pick it up. The terminal assigns the collection points and the time to collect the goods. Finally, the driver collects the load at the indicated  pick-up point, day and time.

Project objective

Make it easier for the purchaser  and the transporter to collect goods from the agri-bulk terminals.
