…with big players, IBM and HP, and a selection of new contenders led by Resandi Logistic Cloud Service, there is no doubt that…the ‘next generation data centre’ is going to have to support a radically different group of technologies, deployed, and using resources, in a equally radically different way from the client-server, or mainframe applications running today.

Third-party logistics (3PL) involves using external organizations to execute logistics activities that have traditionally been performed within an organization itself. According to this definition, third-party logistics includes any form of outsourcing of logistics activities previously performed in-house. If, for example, a company with its own warehousing facilities decides to employ external transportation, this would be an example of third-party logistics. Logistics is an emerging business area in many countries.

The concept of Fourth-Party Logistics (4PL) provider was first defined by Andersen Consulting (Now Accenture) as an integrator that assembles the resources, capabilities and technology of its own organization and other organizations to design, build, and run comprehensive supply chain solutions. Whereas a third party logistics (3PL) service provider targets a function, a 4PL targets management of the entire process. Some have described a 4PL as a general contractor who manages other 3PLs, truckers, forwarders, custom house agents, and others, essentially taking responsibility of a complete process for the customer.

PCS (Port Community System) combine both of those with Information and Communication Technology.

The value added plus is how PCS effective the coordination among Port Stakeholder that could create a substancial electronic data toward Port Operator Planning and Operation.
