The TBA Group has revealed that its Autostore Terminal Operating System (TOS) has been running successfully at the Port Authority of the Cayman Islands (PACI).
According to a statement, Autostore TOS is maximizing the potential of Konecranes’ Boxhunter RTGs, which are the first to be delivered to the Caribbean region.
The cranes were chosen by the inland container terminal, located a few kilometres from the sea port at George Town, for their performance, ease of operation and ease of delivery.
PACI, TBA and Konecranes collaborated with each other for a timely go-live operation, which saw the Autostore TOS fully aligned with the erection of the Boxhunter RTGs.
Alfredo Ramirez, Konecranes Sales Manager for the Americas, has emphasized the strategic importance of the deal between all three parties.
“This deal follows upon our first BOXHUNTER RTG deal in South America.
“It shows there’s a real need for this kind of innovative container crane in the Americas and the need for specialist supporting technology to assist with the smooth implementation and operation of the equipment.”

The Autostore TOS is currently being used at over 35 locations around the world, the software allowing users to control the movement and storage of containerized cargo.
In addition to this, the user can use the TOS to optimize assets labour and equipment performance, plan workloads and receive real-time information to improve decision-making.
