Container Terminal

Container Terminal Description

A Terminal Operating System, or TOS, is a key part of a supply chain and primarily aims to control the movement and storage of various types of cargo in and around a container terminal or port. The systems also enables better use of assets, labor and equipment, plan workload, and receive up-to-date information.

Automation in the Container Terminal Business today is essential to better serve customers and improve profitability. Moreover, increasing port calls of mega-vessels, more productive quay cranes, and increased GBP altogether have led to a surge in container volume that are handled in yard, which makes today’s yard operations even more challenging. Joining this trend, many terminals are preparing ambitious plans to automate almost every single process of its Terminal Operation/Gate.
