Indra is a global technology and consulting company and technology partner for the key operations of its clients’ businesses around the world. It is a leading provider of proprietary solutions in specific segments of the Transport and Defense markets, and a leading company in digital transformation and Information Technology consulting in Latin America and Spain, through its subsidiary Minsait. Its business model is based on a comprehensive offer of its own products, with an end-to-end approach, of high value and with a high component of innovation. At the end of the 2020 financial year, Indra had revenues of 3,043 million euros, close to 48,000 employees, a local presence in 46 countries and commercial operations in more than 140 countries. The company has a unique experience in Transportation: it has more than 2,500 projects developed in more than 100 cities in more than 50 countries and its technology is present in more than 70 ports around the world. Its line of Mova Traffic solutions and, specifically, its systems for the exploitation and management of logistics-port operations facilitate a comprehensive and optimal management of ports. They make it possible to improve operational processes and quality of service, in a more efficient and sustainable way, as well as offer greater efficiency in the use of public and private resources and boost the competitiveness of port infrastructures. All this contributes to the economic and social development of the port and its community. In Latin America, Indra has port references in Uruguay, Panama, Brazil, Peru and Chile. In the latter, Indra has carried out the digital transformation of the Port of Valparaíso, achieving significant efficiency improvements and cost reduction. More recently, Indra has completed the development of the reception module for the Maritime Single Window (VUMAR), the electronic platform promoted by the Ministry of Transport and Telecommunications of Chile, which allows the processes associated with the attention of ships to be made more efficient for make calls at Chilean ports. In other countries of the region such as Uruguay, its developments control the customs access of goods to the port of Montevideo. Indra has also been one of the main technology providers in the expansion of the Panama Canal and has modernized the information management systems of the Panama Maritime Authority. The company has also implemented its One-Stop Shop or Port Community System solutions in countries such as Spain, Cyprus, Portugal, Morocco, Angola or Cape Verde. For Marcelo Peñailillo, Indra’s commercial director of Transport in Chile, the company’s presence at the Trans-Port 2021 event “is a great opportunity to highlight the importance of digitization in the new logistics-port models. Technologies such as Big data, sensors, IoT, smart devices or smart grids are today key to optimizing operations, increasing sustainability and reducing the impact of port activity on the environment and on nearby cities ”. At Indra, Marcelo Peñailillo underlines, “we are developing numerous projects to contribute to the digitization of ports and maritime single windows, incorporating the latest digital solutions, the most innovative developments and expanding the digital transformation to the entire logistics chain”. During the Trans-Port 2021 event, Indra will present cases, lessons learned and technological trends in digital transformation projects in transport and port environments at a global and Latin American level.
