Overview | Terminal Operation System
The needs for super-sized and high-performance terminals are rising as international trade and numbers of large vessels have increased. Overall productivity and efficiency of terminals is becoming more important in the global competition between the terminals, and the increase of throughput and demands for efficiency is requesting terminals to become more optimized.
OPUS Terminal is the Terminal Operating System suitable and optimized for conventional as well as automated terminal operation. As CyberLogitec has applied the latest IT technology for OPUS Terminal system architecture, it guarantees high system reliability with transaction load balancing at peak time. Moreover, OPUS Terminal offers a high system flexibility & scalability which enables our customers to save the total TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
As the result, moreover 90% of container handling operation in Korea is supported by OPUS Terminal, and automated terminals such as Hanjin Newport Company, Pusan Newport Company (DP World operation), and Total Terminal Intl’ Algeciras in Spain already are enjoying the benefit of OPUS Terminal. The needs for super-sized and high-performance terminals are rising as international trade and numbers of large vessels have increased. Overall productivity and efficiency of terminals is becoming more important in the global competition between the terminals, and the increase of throughput and demands for efficiency is requesting terminals to become more optimized.

Benefits | Terminal Operation System
Optimized yard operation
OPUS Terminal TLC (Terminal Logistics Control) system maximizes terminal productivity with optimized real-time planning, job scheduling, dispatching and resource pooling functions. With actual status of containers & equipments data in the terminal, TLC sends job orders to automated yard equipments based on optimized algorithm. Moreover, it enables users to select preferred yard allocation-rule by either grouping or scattering according to yard utilization rates and equipment workload for real-time grounding.
OPUS Terminal supports controlling of terminal equipment such as:
- Ship to Shore Crane (Twin / Tandem Lift support)
- Straddle carrier, RTG, RMG operation
- Top Pick, Reach Stacker operation
- Automated Stacking Crane
- Shuttle carrier & Terminal Truck pooling
Yard equipment pooling
OPUS Terminal Yard Equipment Pooling system increases equipment availability by decreasing yard truck/straddle carrier idle time and unnecessary travel by suggesting the optimal travel path. It supports pooling per STS Crane, vessel, and berth which leads to higher productivity.
Resource Management system supports resource planning and management for labor and equipment to save terminal running costs. Adopting lean management logic, OPUS Terminal Resource Management system minimizes the terminal’s unnecessary manual work and maximizes the operation productivity.
