MGI, Port Community Systems (PCS) expert and TGI Maritime Software, leader in the French-speaking Terminal Operating System (TOS) market, are working together to ensure AP and migration to Ci5 for a number of maritime terminals.
The terminals include: Terminal Des Flandres (Dunkirk), SMART (Mayotte) and DATA Terminal (Martinique).
Ci5 is an intelligent PCS dedicated to the management of the flow of goods which delivers fluidity, traceability, security and competitiveness for all terminals in order to create an ever-more efficient supply-chain.
Ensuring traceability for imports or exports of goods is the objective jointly pursued by TOS and PCS. This is how Ci5 and OSCAR exchange thousands of messages every day.
Rémi Julien, MGI CEO says: “Strong integration with IT terminal systems is a must for port efficiency. I am delighted that the cooperation between MGI and TGI launched 10 years ago is still going strong with our new generations of products in order to guarantee greater operations performance, safety and fluidity.”
MGI and TGI Maritime Software worked together in project mode. As a provider and integrator of “OSCAR” TOS, TGI’s goal was to provide the necessary developments in the TOS so that interfaces works optimally with Ci5. A dedicated team, developers, testers and trainers joined together from both sides to ensure goods traceability.
Terminal Des Flandres (Dunkirk), Data Terminal (Fort de France) and SMART (Mayotte) particularities were taken into account to offer a solution tailored to customers’ specific requirements.
The first deployments of the Ci5 and OSCAR solution was on 1 December, 2019 in Mayotte and early October in Dunkirk. The next one is scheduled for 31 March 2021 in Fort de France.
Ci5’s interface is intuitive, ergonomic and focused on user needs. Its design is based on the latest cutting-edge technologies: Block Chain, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility.
It guarantees operational productivity gains by offering, in particular, a personalized display, intuitive entries and simplified data searches. Thanks to real-time information, supply chain players can anticipate and plan all land and maritime operations before ship’s arrival or departure (or any other transport mode).
For example, with the Ci5 mobile application, the passage of carriers at the gate is recorded, container and seal numbers quickly filled in by truck drivers. Thus, information data transmission is significantly reduced and movement of goods accelerated.
