Otral Terminal

Terminals are important logistic hubs. Disruption at container terminals or to terminal services can have a serious impact on the whole of the supply chain.

Otral Terminal (Otral = German acronym standing for Organisation of Transport Logistics in Extraordinary Situations) is an agreement between four terminal operators to coordinate their logistics operations to supply essential goods in the event of a shortage. By cooperating and coordinating their resources in such a situation, the terminal operators can ensure goods continue to be shipped in sufficient quantity for as long as possible without the need for state intervention.
