What balance does Puerto San Antonio make regarding the state of cargo recovery that is being experienced this first semester, after the most complicated part of the economic disruption derived from the COVID-19 pandemic has passed but which currently generates externalities in terms of commercial and operational in the port logistics chain and international trade? Between January and July of this year, San Antonio transferred 14,371,465 tons of general cargo, a data that represents 11% more than the same period in 2020, which is obviously a positive balance and that makes us happy. San Antonio’s leadership in the transfer of different types of merchandise is due to the commitment of many actors, including concessionaires, port workers, EPSA’s own collaborators, truckers, etc. On the other hand, port congestion is a global phenomenon that has changed market conditions, with processes in the international logistics chain that go far beyond a rate determined by one port or another. In fact, the cost to move a container today costs US $ 10,000 versus US $ 1,000 a year ago, which naturally is a foreign matter to us and that responds to the costs that shipping companies charge to cargo not only in Chile Instead, we are talking about a rise that affects cargo globally. Regarding port rates, San Antonio has one of the lowest TUPs in the Chilean port system and there has been no increase in that value for two years. However, there are some factors that are beyond our scope of action related to the removal of cargo that has already been unloaded and it is here that we continue to work together with other actors in the logistics chain to inject more efficiency into the land process and reduce times. The port works 24/7, 365 days a year, however, the other end of the chain, which are those who receive the cargo or send its removal from the port, are not doing it at the same times, generating a lag of this cargo and that our port storage capacity is completed, making cargo dispatches or receptions less efficient. We have had good results in asking the actors for greater coordination, for example, we created a table with the ANAC (association of car importers). With them, a weekly table was created in which withdrawals were coordinated in third shifts and new areas were set up for reception and dispatch. The cargo owners have indeed expressed their concern about these situations, which when explained understand where it is generated. And the effort that is requested of them is that they can operate continuously like the port terminals, from the removal of cargo from the ports, to the reception in their warehouses, especially for shipments that leave direct from maritime concessionaires in address to consignee facilities. How is the port handling the growing storm surge problem and all the externalities that this generates? For the specific case of closure due to storm surges or weather conditions, it should be noted that it is not a measure that is taken arbitrarily and there are several entities involved in it. We must ensure, above all, so that the tasks are carried out safely, without jeopardizing the integrity of our workers, the maritime infrastructure and the environment, nor of the cargo to be mobilized. The one that dictates the parameters to determine the closure or restrictions of the port operation is the Maritime Authority, with whom we are in permanent contact to face adverse weather conditions and a joint work on the matter to be able to modify the maximum wave height allowed in operations. departure and landfall of the ships that carry out cargo transfer in our 4 concessioned terminals. Competitiveness is very relevant, and to be competitive we need to have the port open and safely for as many days as possible. In this sense, it should be noted that San Antonio became the first port in the country to have a robust and integrated system of electronic lines to allow the entry of ships with reduced visibility. These are virtual signs that allow boats to land without the need to have all the physical lines visible. On the other hand, we currently have a wave forecasting system, which allows us to more precisely plan our operation in the face of meteorological events that affect our coast. The reinforcement of the real-time measurement system for Winds, Tides, Waves and Visibility (VCMOV) is also part of the plan, which involved the installation of a second meteorological station and a second oceanographic monitoring buoy. This will generate better data for the Maritime Authority to make decisions regarding port restrictions or closures. Another milestone related to the efficiency of the operation is related to the simulator of the Maritime Instruction and Training Center (CIMAR), with which the San Antonio bay, the port facilities and the type of ships that call were recreated. Regarding the projects in the short and medium term, there is a coordinated effort between the Maritime Authority and the concessionaires to execute a plan that allows to efficiently face this type of natural phenomena, in order to improve the current Vessel Traffic Control System (VTS). We also look forward to the next installation of the Integrated Port Control Center (CICPort), a project that will consist of a building where there will be personnel from Puerto San Antonio and the Chilean Navy in charge of operation and maintenance. This seeks to provide greater security to ships, increase traffic control and thus make more efficient decision-making to open and close ports, taking advantage of the available time windows in a better way. Regarding the Outer Port Project, what is its status and how is the city-port relationship with the new municipal authorities of San Antonio viewed? As for the Exterior Port, it is a project of the State of Chile that will ensure the necessary port operation for the next 100 years that the country requires. It will gradually expand the cargo transfer capacity in San Antonio until it reaches a total of 6 million TEU / year, more than doubling the current transfer capacity of the Valparaíso Region. With this, we will also be enabled to serve state-of-the-art container ships of 400 meters in length (long), which currently cannot dock in any port in the country. It will have positive impacts on the commune and province of San Antonio, allowing great economic activity and generating significant benefits in terms of direct and indirect jobs, road connectivity, housing, gastronomy, tourism and local commerce, among other areas. In terms of employment, only in the construction phase of the project, which would last approximately 8 years, will require the hiring of 1,100 workers, reaching a peak of around 2,200 jobs in the period of greatest demand. Likewise, by the time the Outer Port is operating at full capacity, 2,000 new port and logistics workers will be added to the operation, which will be added to the current staffing. Continuing with the environmental processing of the Puerto Exterior project and once the citizen participation has been concluded, in March of this year we asked the Environmental Assessment Service for an extension until May 31, 2022 to provide satisfactory responses to the observations contained in the Consolidated Report of Request for Clarifications, Rectifications and / or Extensions (ICSARA). The request is based on the fact that the inquiries received will require responses based on the execution of specific studies and activities in the field that must necessarily cover the four seasons of the year, together with the preparation of reports that, as a whole, will allow to deliver in an adequate way. the answers to the clarifications, rectifications and / or extensions requested. The Outer Port of San Antonio is an opportunity to achieve an adequate harmony between port activity and the city, since it will provide answers to current problems and will allow the creation of a new urban order for San Antonio. We are convinced that dialogue is the formula to achieve the development of the entire province and to establish a correct city-port relationship. For this reason, we are already managing official conversations with the newly assumed authorities to build a new way of relating, without prejudice to the fact that we have already had some phone calls and we held a meeting with some councilors who asked us to learn about the tourism project works on the ground called North Coastal Walk. We want to emphasize that, in the design stage of the Outer Port of San Antonio, one of the priorities has been that the project represents an urban contribution. For the construction phase, the use of railway infrastructure and new road solutions has been considered, with the aim of reducing the number of vehicles in charge of transporting stone material in cities, and, consequently, its possible impacts on urban roads from San Antonio and Llolleo. Trans-Port 2021 will offer a wide range of presentations on best practices and success stories at a global level in matters of digitization and sustainability. How does Puerto San Antonio receive the invitation to participate in this event and what expectations does it generate? The event has broad institutional support from the public and private sectors, with Puerto San Antonio being one of the main sponsors. It attracts thousands of people and exhibits shipping companies, manufacturers of ships, products and everything related to maritime matters. It is a window of this sector for the whole world, and San Antonio has to be present, not only because of the relevance of our port today, but also because we are committed to an important project that is to increase cargo transfer capacity. This international body allows the exchange of exhibitions, technologies and information. It is an ideal meeting point to socialize a project as important as the Outer Port. We decided to be one of the main sponsors of Trans-Port 2021 because we are assuming our role as a strategic port in the country, and also considering the tremendous challenge that our growth project implies.

Volcan presents Chancay Park, a “world class” industrial logistics complex, at Trans-Port 2021

Press Trans-Port 2021

Volcan and its Chancay Park project are already part of the Trans-Port 2021 community, the Exhibition and VII International Congress, which will be held between November 9 and 11, 2021 at CasaPiedra Santiago de Chile, and will address the main trends, initiatives and projects of the maritime-port industry and foreign trade in Latin America, and whose central theme is “Digitization and sustainability: Challenges of the maritime-port industry” Volcan Compañía Minera is a Peruvian company with more than 75 years of experience in the mining industry dedicated to the exploration and exploitation of minerals, as well as the commercialization of their concentrates. It has more than 354 thousand hectares of mining concessions, eight operating mines, six concentrator plants and a leaching plant; it also participates in the energy sector with hydroelectric plants, transmission lines and in the transportation sector through a 40% stake in the Chancay port project. In this sense, Volcan is a diversified mining company, a world leader in the production of zinc, lead and silver and committed to the development of Peru. In recent years, the Lima-Callao strategic hub has shown high levels of congestion. Faced with this problem, Volcan decided to start the integral and sustainable development of the port-industrial node of Chancay, 78 km from Lima and with direct access to the Pan-American highway, in order to position it as a great strategic ally of Callao and as a space of logistics, industrial and technological quality to promote the industrial and foreign trade sector of Peru, and configure an advanced innovative axis with Lima, to reinforce its leading position in the South American Pacific. In 2019, Volcan formalized the entry of the Chinese company Cosco Shipping Ports Limited (CSPL), a world leader in port management, in the development of the Chancay Multipurpose Port Project, incorporating this strategic partner for the project with a 60 % stake, Volcan maintains the remaining 40% ownership. The next stage in the development of the port-industrial node began with the planning of the Chancay Industrial Logistics Complex (“Chancay Park”) project, the ideal complement to the Chancay port. This industrial logistics complex is an ecosystem of companies, in which the different industries and services coexist, interact and establish synergies to achieve a qualitative leap in terms of diversification, competitiveness and innovation, incorporating environmental aspects as well. Chancay Park is a “world class” project, a reference for Peru and all South America. A project that integrates and surpasses the conventional concepts of logistics parks, industrial parks and free zones, to become a true logistics-industrial and service “city”, with a strong social focus and environmental preservation that will allow it to become a legacy for future generations. The Chancay Industrial Logistics Complex is located in a strategic place, surrounded by agricultural fields, with excellent infrastructure of roads that connect the project with the main distribution points, and with an integrated multifunctional vocation, to include logistics, industrial areas, service complexes and technology and residential areas. It is mainly oriented to international commercial investments, but also to complement the limitations of the current industrial structure of the Lima-Callao area. The industrial logistics complex will work directly with the new port of Chancay in the storage and distribution of national and international exporting companies in Peru and will have a gross area of 843 Ha which will be divided into: (i) logistics zone, (ii) industrial zone, (iii) commercial zone, (iv) residential zone, (v) amenities, and (vi) green areas. The logistics zone will include 59 Ha of marketable land, while the industrial zone will have 199 Ha of marketable land. Projects such as Chancay Park, which are to be developed over several years and in various socio-economic frameworks of international trade, require a high degree of flexibility. Its planning must be able to adapt, phase to phase, to the requirements of uses and activities, lot typology, connectivity and services that shape the market, both global and Peruvian. The planning of Chancay Park, in this regard, has been conceived with flexibility for: • Allocation of primary uses and activities at each stage of development: logistic, industrial, commercial, services, residential, etc. • Ordering of circulation and connectivity according to the impacts and needs of Chancay Park as a whole. • Development of unit aggregation for the various developers, each of which can implement their own control and security system. • Development that allows for custom-controlled zones. • Lots that can be adapted into different product typologies depending on market demand. • Central zone distributions as a function of demand. The Trans-Port 2021 community officially welcomes Volcan and its Chancay Park project, which will surely be an interesting investment alternative for institutional participants who will be present at the VII Congress and Exhibition in Santiago de Chile

TPS Valparaíso anticipates Trans-Port 2021 “Digitization and sustainability are aspects that inspire our day-to-day operations.”

Nota asociada a categoría: Main News

Press Trans-Port 2021

Andrés Repetto, TPS Operations Manager, together with Trans-Port 2021, reviews the main challenges of the port terminal over more than 20 years of operation in support of Chilean international trade. In a context where companies have made progress in deepening their internal gender equality policies, how is this type of initiative assessed within TPSV and if it is part of its corporate sustainability strategy? At TPS, sustainability has been the foundation of growth throughout our more than 20 years of concession. We know that we are a fundamental part of the logistics chain of foreign trade and we are aware of the responsibility that falls to us in the development of this sector so relevant to the country’s economy. When we talk about sustainable development, a diverse company is a key factor; therefore, addressing gender equity issues is within our focus. In the case of TPS, around 15% of our staff are women, a proportion that stands out compared to the 2% of women who work in the maritime port sector worldwide, according to figures from the International Maritime Organization (IMO); and our commitment is to continue in that way, always ensuring that our selection processes allow diversity in the application from its origin. TPS currently has a balanced executive team in terms of gender, with women in management and leadership roles. Another relevant aspect from the general perspective of equality is that in TPS there is no salary gap between men and women, since salaries are established according to the position that each person holds. What types of labor practices has TPSV identified as part of its modernization process, and what role do they play in aspects such as continuous improvement of operations, security and digital transformation? TPS is a terminal limited in terms of space and inserted in the heart of Valparaíso, therefore, both characteristics constantly challenge us to keep searching for solutions in innovation and technology to improve its efficiency. In this context we are always in a process of continuous improvement, modernizing both our processes and equipment, resulting in increased safety, quality, efficiency and productivity. All changes present challenges, and since the procedures are carried out by people, a critical step is to bring them closer and familiar with them through testing and white runs before launching production systems. A large part of the new technologies that we have implemented address opportunities for improvement associated with manual processes. When a technology solves a problem that was common to a person, the reception of that technology is positive. On the other hand, the pandemic meant adapting practically all the processes of our activity, which we successfully achieved thanks to the commitment of our collaborators, who assumed from the first moment the mission of continuing to work so that the country could continue its operation. Our greatest satisfaction, in this sense, is having been able to provide our workers with everything in our power to protect their health. Without a doubt, the safety of people and the operation was the great axis around which all our activities revolved throughout the pandemic. As it is one of the pillars of our culture, this meant reinforcing the programs that we had been working on for some time with our collaborators, companies that are part of the operation and contractors; as well as implementing new projects, with a comprehensive vision that encompasses the health care of all people, the care of the environment and the prevention of accidents. The pandemic has also accelerated the digitization of executive work, as it has led us to interact in digital meetings and have conversations on whiteboards or digital applications, which has worked very well. Likewise, at TPS we like to digitize and develop software and applications to solve our problems and there are still many opportunities to deepen digitization in those processes that require typing, understanding by this, the manual processes that become more complex with the increase in volumes of cargo. TPS COMPANY INFORMATION Terminal Pacífico Sur Valparaíso, TPS, is a relatively young company but with a lot of experience, thanks to the trajectory of Ultramar and above all to the skills and professionalism of all the people who work at the Terminal. In 2020 we celebrate 20 years as concessionaires of Terminal 1 of the port of Valparaíso, which in turn is managed by the Port Autorithy of Valparaíso (EPV), which belongs to the Public Companies System (SEP). In these 20 years, we have moved more cargo than in the entire history of Valparaíso, which for centuries has been the main port of the country. Our concession contract, which runs until December 31, 2029, considers the operation and administration of Terminal 1, designed to receive container and multipurpose ships, as well as passenger ships. Contribute to people’s quality of life through international trade, in a sustainable way and with operational excellence. The TPS facility is approximately 15 hectares, which compared to other port terminals in the world is a small area; but we are great in efficiency, since we move a lot of cargo in relation to the area we have. The Terminal has operational areas such as the Berth Front, the yard where the cargo is stored, the Gates or accesses, etc .; and administrative areas, where the offices are located. TPS has several accesses for the different functions. In addition, there is a TPS office in the Logistics Support Extension Zone (ZEAL) in the upper part of the city. The services provided by TPS are mainly divided into services to ships and services to cargo.

The objectives of the Study include sharing in an academic and practical way the components of the Comprehensive Model of Competitiveness and Management of Port Logistics Chains; develop a strategic application to the reality of each participating port; and analyze the challenges of operational continuity in the face of disruptive events such as COVID and other variables facing the maritime-port industry in Chile today. Mr. Rodrigo Lobo, Manager of the fairs group (Trans-Port) of GL events Chile Group, was in charge of opening the meeting with words of welcome to the representatives of the six port communities that will participate in the Study. “This initiative is part of the actions prior to the Trans-Port 2021 Event in November, and which connect us in a practical way with the Chilean maritime-port industry. We hope to disseminate the main results of this study, which will undoubtedly be a step forward in identifying opportunities and gaps for improvement in the local and national port logistics chain”, said the executive. On the other hand, Dr. Rosa Gonzalez, professor of the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences from the Universidad de Los Andes Chile, commented the scope of the study in each port community. The program consists of two stages: The first includes a four-week training workshop with weekly sessions where aspects such as: the competitive context of the global maritime-port industry will be addressed; the logistics management components applied to the maritime-port value chain; Case studies and best practices; Analysis of disruptions and their impact on the operational continuity of foreign trade and port business; and Evaluation of the degree of implementation of best practices in a specific port reality. The second part of the study, lasting two weeks, will allow participants from each port community to evaluate elements of competitiveness and management of their own port reality. The study expects to have a participation per port community of between 40 to 100 people, reaching a total of about 300 professionals and officials from the various organizations and companies that make up the port logistics chain of the ports under study. Registration for the training workshop will be open until Wednesday, July 7 in each port community. The start of the sessions is scheduled for the week of July 12, 2021 and for those participants who comply with the attendance and surveys, they will be given their corresponding certificate of participation.

Under secretary of Transport, José Luis Dominguez analyzes the sector an says: “Digitization in logistics generates higher productivity efficiency and competitiveness”

Press Trans-Port 2021

The Undersecretary of Transport of the Government of Chile, José Luis Domínguez shares with the Trans-Port 2021 community his vision on the advances promoted by MTT in matters of sustainability and digital transformation, whose fundamental pillar has been the promotion of logistics communities port facilities as State policy. 1. What lessons learned can be highlighted in the actions taken by public ports in this period of pandemic and economic recovery? The MTT has focused mainly on ensuring the continuity of supply chains and maintaining the supply of the population as, as far as possible, the operation of key economic activities in the country, without neglecting and requiring employers and port authorities permanent health care and control and care measures for port and logistics workers. The pandemic has made us face a scenario of permanent change and global challenges for the operation of the logistics system. For this, actions have been permanently coordinated with the Ministry of Health. We have established mechanisms for the movement of workers associated with port activity, crew of ships and aircraft, and ground transportation personnel, with the aim of not interrupting supply chains. Likewise, different projects have been promoted in logistics digital transformation, such as the Maritime Single Window or the Port Community Systems, which allow us to advance towards the objective of minimizing face-to-face procedures and reducing the time involved. 2. How are sustainability strategies viewed by the MTT and how are they deployed by public ports in their businesses, workers and territories? Sustainability, from a comprehensive perspective, has been a permanent issue of occupation in our ministerial management. We must ensure that the deployment of actions is sustainable both in economic, social and environmental terms. In the case of ports, in the first place, this is manifested daily in current operations, with examples such as the signing and compliance with Clean Production Agreements (APL) in numerous ports and that, through the shared construction of specific goals by the Private actors linked to each port have allowed investment in improvements that have led to significant improvements in the environmental component of port activities. This is the case, for example, of the port of Antofagasta (with the modification of the process of shipment of mineral concentrates to dump containers) or the measures implemented in the logistics-port system of San Antonio, which have scope throughout the logistics chain . Likewise, an improvement is also produced through the incorporation of the environmental component in the development of the plans and projects of each port in particular, carrying out the required environmental analyzes and complying with the requirements and measures established in the processes of environmental assessment, maintaining a constructive dialogue with the communities. In the area of cultivating sustainable relationships with workers, we have developed a permanent work together with the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare and representatives of the organizations of dock workers and related companies, to progressively improve regulations in this regard. Additionally, we have promoted the creation of the Port Logistics Communities (CLP), and last year it supported instances to discuss and share issues relevant to their communities such as “Governance and Sustainability”; “The role of the Logistics Communities in the resolution of contingencies”; “Improvement of port system processes through collaborative work” and “Technological solutions for the logistics chain”. The Logistics Communities are internationally recognized as instances of collaboration and management in the implementation of improvements in the port logistics chain, whose adoption of good practices enhances their efficiency and coordination. The shared experiences have made it possible to highlight the contribution in the improvement of logistics processes and the benefits that a CLP can provide to the people who live in the cities in which they operate. 3. What is the degree of progress in the digital transformation initiatives that the ministry is undertaking together with the maritime authority, public ports and the road transport sector? Digitization in logistics generates greater productivity, efficiency and competitiveness in the sector, therefore, the MTT, through the Logistics Development Program, works to promote the gradual introduction of technology in different areas of logistics. Thus, for example, we provide guidelines and tools for the adoption of technology in the port logistics chain, in addition to starting to raise the needs and requirements for airport logistics. An example is the Maritime Single Window (VUMAR), a digital platform that will manage the information on the reception and dispatch operations of ships, making all the required information available to users and allowing interoperability with the rest of the national and international systems. This platform began its work since 2018 and it is expected that all the modules will be developed in December 2021. When the project is completed, this system can be used -with the consequent benefits- by the Ship Agencies, Shipping Companies, SAG, Sernapesca, PDI, Customs, Health Service and port terminals, Sicex, Maritime Authority, international ports and users who require information associated with these operations. Starting in 2022, integrations with these organizations will be carried out gradually to complete the massification. Regarding land transport, the Foreign Trade Transport Identification System (SITCOMEX), which we are currently developing, will facilitate the entry of trucks to port and logistics areas without the need to present papers and documents for identification. We also work with ports to design a Port Community System Base Module, PCS, interoperable with national-level platforms (such as SICEX and VUMAR). This design provides national ports with a set of technical integration standards so that they can implement the functionalities of each port system on it. This work continues during this year, in order to have a definition of transversal basic services to include in the systems of each port; business model alternatives for its administration; definitions of the technical and management team profile to develop the functions of the case; as well as with guidelines to involve the logistics communities in these developments. 4. Trans-Port 2021 is committed to bringing together the main protagonists of the economic recovery of the global maritime-port industry, in addition to its main suppliers. How should Chilean ports and authorities take advantage of this event? We value all the opportunities that allow us to bring together logistics actors, which is so fundamental for the country and which silently involves a lot of work, coordination, projects and engineering developed at the service of the country, the productive sectors, and which ultimately lead to a greater development and quality of life for people.

From Chile and for Latin America, Trans-Port 2021 VII Congress and Exhibition is consolidated as the main event organized and promoted by Fisa of the GL events group for the Maritime-Port Industry of our region. To date, a wide range of multilateral and multinational organizations, governments, public services, public and private companies in the sector, providers of industrial solutions, academia, and a large number of specialists who will make up our thematic panels in the fields of digitization and sustainability. In June, the three main ports in northern Europe have been confirmed, and representatives of the port authorities of Antwerp, Hamburg and Rotterdam will be present at the event. Trans Port 2021 has rescheduled its dates to adapt to these times, which will take place between November 9 to 11, 2021 in Casa Piedra, Santiago de Chile. The event that will bring together the maritime-port industry will have for the first time a hybrid format, that is, face-to-face and virtual. This will make it possible for everyone to participate in the exhibition from any device and in any place, if there are still international travel restrictions on that date. In this new edition we will have a space for networking, both in the building and through our virtual platform Trans Port Connect, which will allow exhibitors and visitors to interact in both formats. In addition, we will have greater national and international coverage, there will be access to the exhibition at any place and time, we will have customizable stands in the face-to-face version through QR code and permanent update in the virtual stand. Continuing with our activities prior to the event, which allow us to maintain close contact with the Trans-Port Community, last May we held the first Trans-Port 2021 Webinar together with our collaborators from Panama (Webb Fontaine), Chile (Ministry of Transport and Empresa Portuaria San Antonio) and Peru (National Port Authority of Peru), and where there was an interesting debate on recommendations and lessons learned for change management derived from port digital transformation projects. In this new Trans-Port 2021 July Newsletter, we share the opinions of two of our sponsoring organizations. On the one hand, on behalf of the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications (MTT), Mr. Undersecretary José Luis Domínguez shares his vision of the digital transformation and change management initiatives that the ministry undertakes with various port and maritime authorities in the country . We are also accompanied by the Spanish technology company INDRA, whose strength and capacity for innovation has led it to develop a series of cutting-edge projects with the maritime-port industry in Europe, Latin America and Chile. Trans-Port, in a strategic alliance with the University of the Andes, began in June the Study of “Competitiveness and Management of the port logistics chain” together with six port logistics communities in Chile, which will enable the training of more than 200 executives and officials of the companies and organizations that make up the value chain in each of these ports. The results of this study are expected to be delivered during the November event, which will allow us to measure the main existing gaps and opportunities for initiatives in the areas of sustainability and digital transformation. We continue to build the great Trans-Port Community, a meeting place for all public organizations, private companies, suppliers, professionals and academia related to the Latin American maritime-port industry. We want to invite you to be part of this event, as a sponsor or attendee, and to visit our website www.trans-port.cl to find out news and upcoming activities. We are waiting for you at Trans-Port Santiago 2021!
