Are TOS Systems Efficient Enough for SMTs?
We often see press releases selling breakthroughs and innovations happening at large terminals, usually heavy investment in equipment, infrastructure or IT, and its flagship product in the maritime terminal industry: The TOS (Terminal Operating System). But innovation isn’t just restricted to the large players in the industry, small and medium sized terminals (SMTs), with relatively small investments, can also benefit from TOS and providers dedicated to this SMT market.
WHAT MAKES REQUIREMENTS FROM SMTs SPECIFIC?
MORE FLEXIBLE TURN-KEY SOLUTIONS
There are very specific requirements to take into consideration when dealing with SMTs. Indeed, in most SMTs, when it comes to TOS implementation, there are constraints to consider while preparing and proceeding with changes:
• Budget is of course very often proportional to volumes and turnover
