Port-Centric Logistics

About this event

Port-Centric Logistics


Port-Centric Logistics is used to describe logistics and distribution services based at the port where goods arrive. At its heart, it is intended to be an alternative to inland depots and centrally located national distribution centres. In practice PCL allows shipments to be stored at ports and therefore cut the number of handling stages throughout the supply chain.

Port-Centric Logistics is favored by big national and international retailers, such as Tesco, and are rapidly growing in popularity as businesses look for ways to streamline supply chains and landowners such as Port Authorities look for additional revenue streams.

As well as reducing supply chain links, and therefore cutting costs, port-centric logistics also improves operations and customer service because containers are unloaded, checked and distributed from a single port-based location. In this webinar, understand how to:

  •      Evaluate the different technologies available in robotics and in warehouses to
  •      Effectively implement PCL in your Port
  •      Realise the tangible benefits of Port-Centric Logistics
