SLS Bucharest Intermodal Terminal opens new intermodal terminal in Romania

SLS Bucharest Intermodal Terminal, the logistics and transport operator under the ownership of FAN Courier, has officially opened the intermodal terminal located in one of Romania's most complex industrial parks.

The new investment is part of the company's medium and long-term development strategy, announced in 2020, following its entry into the FAN Courier portfolio. The investment made by SLS Cargo in partnership with P3 has a value of around US$2 million and gives the company the status of exclusive operator of this terminal. At the same time, the operational capacity of the company has increased significantly.

Encompassing an area exceeding 55,000 m², SLS Cargo ranks as the second-largest lessee within the P3 Industrial Logistic Parks along the A1 highway. The SLS Bucharest Intermodal Terminal is expected to achieve an operational capability of handling up to 750 containers monthly, facilitating the transit of 15 trains each month, including return routes to Constanța Port.

Pioneering the "one window" concept, SLS Cargo integrates road, sea, and air transport services into its portfolio, complemented by an array of warehousing, distribution, and customs consultancy services.

For the optimisation of operations and enhanced cargo movement visibility, SLS Bucharest Intermodal Terminal has chosen the Navis Cloud Terminal Operating System by Kaleris. This user-friendly system boasts an interface facilitating gate management, yard planning, cargo tracking, billing, and real-time data communication to carriers and clients via Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) connections.

"We’ve been asked by SLS Cargo to design their digital platform solution to manage their operations and then to integrate the Navis Cloud TOS with their administrative and customs process," stated Marco Fehmer, CEO of DSP.

Adaptability to various cargo types is a notable feature of the Navis Cloud TOS, making it a fitting choice for both the current and future needs of the terminal. The system, offering a unified view of all operations and information, empowers the terminal to make informed decisions that yield optimal outcomes for its clients.

In this strategic context, DSP - Data and System Planning, a technology company specialising in the ports and terminals industry since 1986, and certified as the first Navis partner in 2007, will spearhead the design of Business Process Management and act as the Solution Integrator for SLS.

"When we needed a TOS for our new intermodal terminal, we knew we would get the best results with the Navis Cloud technology from Kaleris due to their extraordinary reputation and proven track record in the industry," said Mihai Stoica, CEO of SLS Cargo.
