As a head of Terminal and Business Solutions at Ports America, Stanley Canepa’s task was to effectively and efficiently manage all of their fixed and mobile assets.

“We manage all types of cargo and for that we need a variety of assets from anything from large gantry cranes to RTGS and all the way down to the little forklifts to move on general cargo”.

For this reason, Ports America have hundreds of millions of dollars of investment. Effectively manage the assets with all this huge investment, it’s critical not only into the financial performance but it’s critical to safety too.

“Providing effective not only preventive maintenance but also moving forward with predictive maintenance is crucial for having all these assets available to operations at the right time, at the right place.“


Ports America realized they need to be operating all their fixed and mobile assets seamlessly in the cost efficient way, ensuring each container is picked up and then being transitioned either into storage or taken out of the gates of the port to attend destinations as quickly as possible.
