INFORM | Optimization Software for Maritime and Inland Terminals
INFORM specializes in Agile Optimization Software to improve operational decision making. We offer a wide variety of optimization solutions for maritime and inland terminals. Designed by terminal professionals and powered by best-of-breed algorithms, they are able to make split second decisions, moving every container and equipment into an optimized position, giving them a head start for their next move – irrespective of their grade of automation (manual, semi or full).
Integrating with almost every existing TOS and IT landscape, these systems render a wide range of terminal processes (e.g. rail crane operations, yard management, etc.) more productive, agile, and reliable. Major terminal operators around the world use INFORM’s field-proven software to speed up their processes: APM Terminals (Maasvlakte II), Port of Hamburg (HHLA CTA + CTB), Port of Los Angeles (TraPac, LLC), GCT Deltaport, and many others.
