Thanks to Nova Systems’ latest innovation, the Shipping Agency module, ship loading and unloading and transhipment operations become simpler and more immediate.

“With the ‘Shipping agency’ module, the issuing of policies, taxes, freight accounts and all the manifests laid down depending on the agency’s operations can be obtained. BeOne also allows costs and revenues to be analyzed by individual journey-ship and company, dossier, policy and management of the costs and takings with regard to the management of the disbursement account,” explained Riccardo Tarocco, Chief Software Architect.

All this is integrated with the accounting module, BeOne e-invoice, management control and the customs operations.

BeOne was also designed to assist the operational activities of shipping agents, who act in the name and on behalf of shipping companies. “As regards this part of the module, the software allows the ship to be managed as a craft that arrives and departs from the port. BeOne is multi-branch, so each branch is linked to its port of reference. In the case of a single ship, the ERP can manage several shipping companies with loads on the same journey-ship, both on embarkation and disembarkation, and goods coming from or to be sent to different destinations,” noted Tarocco.

BeOne enables the management of containers on embarkation and disembarkation and containers in transhipment, that are to be loaded for a different final destination. The possibility therefore arises of tracking a container transiting through the port: the container arrives on one ship and can then continue its journey on a different ship.

“Through BeOne, this operation is managed with a single dossier. The software has some specific functions that enable the rapid entry of the agency file and the simultaneous creation of the positioning order. The administrative database also allows, both on embarkation and disembarkation, the arrangement of containers on the ships and in the companies depending on the load limits or the possible cost/benefit for the shipping agent.”
