London Gateway picks CNS

London Gateway, the new port being developed on the Thames, has chosen Community Network Services (CNS) to provide the Port Community System that controls containers flowing through the port and logistics park.

The port and logistics park is due to open in the fourth quarter of 2013. CNS’s Community System, “Compass”, will give customers a single electronic point of access enabling the registration of manifests, declarations of imports and exports, tracking containers in temporary storage and arranging the pickup and delivery of cargo.

Simon Moore, chief executive of London Gateway, said: “Compass, developed by CNS will allow our customers the most efficient means of coordinating their imports and exports through the port authority and will reduce waiting times, road traffic, environmental impact and logistics frustrations; helping to make London Gateway the preferred destination for the import and export of cargo.”
