DP World Callao continues to invest in the South Pier, automating its refrigerated cargo monitoring by using Reefer Runner


The use of cutting-edge technology will improve the service of its operations and give staff more time to provide value-added services for this type of merchandise.


DP World Callao, the concession holder of the South Pier of the Port of Callao, is the first port terminal to implement the latest version of IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ Reefer Runner, a system to automate and remotely perform the monitoring of refrigerated containers (reefers).

The solution is a means of reducing the time it takes to monitor the temperature of reefers. This provides real-time monitoring to reduce the risk to cargo and provide greater safety to personnel, as they spend less time in the operating yard.

“As part of the commitment we have made as Peru’s first digital and automated port, this stage is very important for us since we will get real-time information 24 hours a day. On temperature, alarms and energy consumption for each of our reefers,” says Gerard van den Heuvel, CEO of DP World Peru.

In the same vein, Marcio Mateus, Director of Information Services and Technologies at DP World Peru, adds: “At DP World we focus on using the best technologies on the market as part of our commitment to service excellence. For more than a year, we have had a comprehensive digital platform in place that allows users of the South Pier to carry out import and export procedures for their cargo from their offices, which is also being extended to other companies associated with the Group. Proof of this is not only that since 2017 we were the first to coordinate with SUNAT and implement our exit ticket to be considered as a cargo waybill but also the implementation of OCR systems for digital reading of containers arriving at our facilities.”

“DP World Callao is at the forefront of technology, implementing SMART technology for each type of customer, be it for the state or private sector, we are turning the South Pier into a world-class terminal more and more every day,” van den Heuvel concluded.

When the project is completed, IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ Reefer Runner will be able to monitor up to 840 reefers at the terminal, which will make for a better process for exporting and importing perishable products.
