Empresa Portuaria Valparaíso (EPV), Chile’s largest port, has once again entrusted Indra, the leading Spanish multinational consulting and technology firm and one of the main players in Europe and Latin America, to modernise and expand its global technological platform after awarding it a new contract worth €7.5 million.
Indra already completed the technological modernisation for the Port of Valparaiso’s expansion as well as the development of a comprehensive solution in 2007, so this new project consolidates the company as a strategic technological partner of EPV. It also strengthens the multinational’s position in the area of port and maritime systems, with projects completed in countries that include Hong Kong, Poland, Portugal, Morocco, Angola, Cape Verde, and Spain, among others, as well as a number of contracts in progress for Panama Canal expansion project or the Port of Southampton in the United Kingdom.
The new project awarded by EPV includes developing new features, expanding the scope as well as providing maintenance during another five years, extendible to eight, for the logistics communication and information, foreign trade and control system for the Port of Valparaiso’s community. Among other improvements, the solution will integrate new agents in the communication and information transfer processes to complete the entire chain that comprises the port community, from the import and export cargo source to the maritime transport, and vice versa. It will also feature an innovative marketplace for hiring logistics services and state-of-the-art ITS (Intelligent Transport Systems) for tracking operations.
