Hogia delivers support for handling large freight flows to the Port of Södertälje
It will now be easier for ports and terminals to handle large volumes of goods. Hogia is launching a mobile application that digitalises manual operations and provides increased operational control. The first to get up and running with the app is the Port of Södertälje, which will use it for unloading and loading import cars. Every year, one third of Sweden’s new car imports, approximately 120,000 cars, are delivered to the port. Large parts of the handling process can now be automated.
