Doubling Cargo Handling Capacity with Optimized Logistics Using SAP Cloud Platform

SAP Networked Logistics Hub, running on SAP Cloud Platform, allows HPA to consolidate unstructured data from freight forwarders, container terminal operators, and depot and chassis lessors and provide it across the port in real time through a central private cloud. This enables a consolidated situational picture of port traffic and more effective cargo handling across the supply chain and results in greater port capacity—helping HPA move more goods for more customers.

“The smartPORT logistics platform running on SAP Cloud Platform has allowed us to double cargo handling capacity. The more partners that participate, the more effectively the port will run.”
