In a bid to enhance general cargo operations at its ports, Abu Dhabi Ports Company is implementing a brand new terminal operating system (TOS).
The port management software called “Master Terminal” will replace Abu Dhabi Ports’ existing systems and support the management of all aspects of general cargo operations, including bulk, break bulk, project and roll-on/roll-off cargo, according to Abu Dhabi Ports Company.
The software aims to provide increased visibility and productivity for operations, reporting and planning procedures, as well as real-time information about cargo flows at any time of the day.
Executive Vice President, Ports Unit, Abu Dhabi Ports, Gary Lemke, said: “We are committed to continual investment in order to stay competitive in the 21st century and to confirm our position at the forefront of progress. ’Master Terminal’ will boost our service offerings and support us in handling our growing general cargo volumes and delivering trade excellence.
“We selected Jade Software as our partner to install ‘Master Terminal’ because it is the best product to meet our requirements.”
Managing Director of Jade Software, David Lindsay, said: “Master terminal will be installed during the second quarter of this year. The first two ports to be implemented will be Khalifa Port and Zayed Port, as both ports play key roles in the UAE’s import and export business, with an annual capacity of 20 million tonnes of cargo”.
