This first meeting has allowed us to gain different points of view concerning the management of empty equipment and approximate solutions from the conviction of all parties, of the need to find solutions to improve the current situation. The meeting comes after several months of work, in which ATCBA compiled the information available in relation to the rest of the ports of the State on the problems generated by this situation and the measures taken to improve it.
The participants discussed about issues such as avoiding the carries in mass; the transmission of the whole chain of the categorization of the status of the container, the authorization of the trade-in of equipment in the deposits, the liability in case of refusal on the part of the customer, the technical solvency in the review, the information on the type of load and the need to implement the platform Teleport 2.0.
