Milan, July 9, 2019
Circle S.p.A., leading its own Group specialised in process and management consulting services and in providing innovative technological solutions for transport and logistics sector, announces the launch and implementation of an “International Fast and Secure Trade Lane” (IFSTL) between the ports of La Spezia and Casablanca, involving Autorita’di Sistema Portuale del Mar Ligure Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority), Agence Nationale des Ports (ANP), Terminal del Golfo (TDG), Tarros and Terminal San Giorgio (TSG), as well as the Casablanca Terminal and Tarros Maroc. The project will be technically coordinated by Circle.
Circle boasts a solid collaboration with all the parties involved in the project. The Italian company will implement the technical system (MILOS for IFSTL) for TDG, TSG and Tarros, and it will be used to manage the Casablanca – La Spezia commercial / operative and maritime trade lane by Tarros itself.
The project provides an improvement in terms of efficiency and timing for trade between European Union and North Africa, and the logistics corridor between Casablanca and La Spezia therefore represents a keystone for the future development of the MED region. The ambitious goal of the project – which is entering today into the operational phase, thanks to the meeting of the operators at Logismed Casablanca last April 10, which was consolidated by the signing of the MoU between ANP and AdSP del Mar Ligure Orientale (AdSP – Eastern Ligurian Sea Port Authority) and announced at Transport Logistics June 6 – aims also to establish an interoperability between the operating systems of the actors involved.
“This project shows our will to keep on investing in the Moroccan Market in order to foster the trade relations between our two Countries. This is in line with Tarros’ aim to provide its customers with increasingly efficient and innovative solutions”, Mr Danilo Ricci, Tarros Group General Manager, stated.
All the companies involved in the project will be integrated into the platform to improve safety, supply chain and efficiency, both for operators and for the final recipients of the goods. The main improvements of the project concern:
- Overall digitalisation of the logistics system;
- Time reduction inside the terminals;
- Real-time traceability of the goods involved and speeding up customs processes.
The project therefore envisages a first pilot-phase to create a logistic corridor to be used by private operators by the end of 2019, in order to subsequently extend the system to other Maghreb and MED ports. With this new project, Circle continues its path of international growth as outlined in the development plan between now and 2022.
