4TRAX: PCS and IoT for secure supply chains
For MGI, the 4TRAX project involved experimenting with the integration into the AP+ Port Community System of data from a solution based on IoT sensors. This consisted of an intelligent patch developed by Traxens and positioned on containers belonging to the company CMA CGM.

Discover 4Trax/Smart Container
MGI has developed a module that allows communication with the platform centralising the data from the sensors to inform those involved in multimodal containerised transport and the end customer in real time about events linked to the transport of the goods, while providing legal proof thanks to administrative and commercial information. A demo has been set up for the export from Marseille to Algeria of containers of medicines, a sensitive and high-value commodity, with pre-routing by rail. These high value-added goods require a high degree of traceability and a reduced transit time at the port.

Strengthening EDI connections
"The relationship between Geodis and MGI goes back a long way. We have been able to establish a close collaboration not only on national territory but on all the sites where MGI is present.

Competence, availability and reactivity are the main qualities of this dynamic team
"I appealed to our partner MGI when setting up an EDI interface between the CI5 portal and our TMS tool dedicated to forwarding. At all stages of this project, from the initial study through to quotation, implementation, development, improvements and amendments, I received great support from the MGI teams, both in terms of the business relationship and technical support. Competence, availability and reactivity are the main qualities of this dynamic team that come to mind. My most demanding requests were heard and analysed, and alternative solutions were proposed if technical constraints were too great. We will undoubtedly have other projects in the future, given the preponderance of inter-system exchanges in today's world and their undeniable contribution to productivity in our industry. And I am confident that I can once again rely on this indispensable partner with peace of mind."

Greater flexibility in hazardous declarations
"For more than 35 years in Marseille, MGI has been a key player in the transport of goods. As a freight forwarder and with an average of 9,000 TEU per year leaving our Port St Louis du Rhône site, it is impossible for us not to work with their CI5 software. In the transit for about fifteen years, I knew its predecessor AP+. Although already very powerful, the arrival of CI5 made it possible to move up a gear in the declaration of our containers. It is much more fun and easy to use because it is very intuitive. It also offers us greater flexibility in terms of dangerous declarations, for example. To sum up, CI5 has made our daily lives easier since its arrival."
