Under the aegis of the Port and Maritime Union of Port of Le Havre (UMEP), it is now mandatory to take a truck appointment to the gate for loading or unloading a container at any terminal operator in Port of Le Havre. SOGET TAS solution has been used since 2011 on one dedicated terminal; waiting time for truckers with an appointment ID in the system, decreased to an average of 40 minutes. This successful experience convinced stakeholders of Port of Le Havre to extend the system to all terminal operators. This will facilitate the traffic around and in the Port area to be fluid and avoid truck congestion. This is the first time in Europe that such a system is extended to port community wide.
