[This article was originally published at theceoviews.com]
CyberLogitec was established in 2000, but the company’s experience in the industry dates back to the 1970s where its solutions were initially developed to solve the needs of a large South Korean shipping group, which it was once a part of. In 2000, the company’s strong solutions and development capability led to a decision to spin-off CyberLogitec and promote its solutions commercially to players in the international maritime, ports, and logistics space. The organization delivered its first TOS (Terminal Operating System) in that year and has been steadily growing in its solution suite to cover the needs of maritime, port, and logistics companies throughout the globe ever since. CyberLogitec now counts more than 150 companies as its customers worldwide. In 2017, noting the global footprint the company had amassed and to service the significant new partnership they had entered into with the shipping giant ONE, the group established CyberLogitec Global as its Global Commercial Headquarters in Singapore. The location chosen for its reputation as a gateway to global markets and one of the most important maritime hubs in the world.
CyberLogitec has been recognized as one of the 50 Innovative Companies of the year 2021 and some may say this was a long time coming. For more than two decades, CyberLogitec has worked with shipping lines, terminals, and logistics providers to optimize their business operations and processes through flexible, end-to-end solutions and business consulting services. “Unlike many other providers to the industry, CyberLogitec not only brings the technical know-how but backs it up with rich experience working within the industry ensuring we understand our customer’s needs from the perspective of their business,” said Tevin Hyung-Chol Choi, MD of CyberLogitec Global. Over the years, CyberLogitec has continually worked to understand the evolving needs of their customers and refine their product offerings to meet those needs. This has required employing advanced technologies to stay ahead of the curve. Nowadays, the latest technologies such as machine learning and IoT integration are incorporated into CyberLogitec’s proprietary heuristic engine that powers many of the features in its OPUS range of products.
CyberLogitec has proven to be a pioneer in the industry, helping their customers overcome challenges and hurdles they face running large, complex businesses. Terminal and Maritime operations are extremely data-driven. Hence the company aims to tackle efficiency through integrated solutions designed to unlock the value of the data the business creates to minimize manual labor or work duplications and algorithmically plan more effective operations. On top of the features expected within a conventional TOS, its solutions can help customers run unstructured document analysis, ensure operations throughout the terminal are running at optimal efficiency,and proactively track KPIs to determine and deal with process leakages. These features are coupled with its commitment to meet and exceed expectations through reliable service delivery, by meeting deadlines and adding value to their partners through comprehensive consultancy services. CyberLogitec solutions can also automate both simple and complex tasks faced by terminals such as Advanced Yard Planning (AYP) which automates yard planning and identifies the most suitable locations for cargo, and Advanced Housekeeping (AHK) which ensures the yard is kept orderly based on the most efficient use of terminal assets and with minimal manual interference. With its innovative platforms such as OPUS Terminal, the organization is confident in helping terminals reach their full business potential in digitizing operations for its continued success.
CyberLogitec and its team are focused on future innovation. The company is constantly working to integrate emerging technologies such as blockchain and artificial intelligence into its offerings. In terms of internal expansion, CyberLogitec already has a presence in all the major global business hubs. Its location in Singapore is a strategic one too, as the Republic has a high concentration of shipping lines, feeders, bulkers, and logistics firms, which earned its recognition as a leading maritime nation.
CyberLogitec has recently launched two new divisions dedicated to the advancement of digital smart ports. Its TOS is enhanced with AI technology using IoT inputs and predictive analysis of collected data.These technologies provide greater visibility of patterns in day-to-day operations, identify potential safety concerns or downtime proactively, and ultimately lead to better planning with the aid of detailed predictions which will not only bring greater efficiency but also help terminals align to digital standards and increase collaboration between various parties within the industry.

CyberLogitec has proved successful in increasing productivity levels in the industry and helping their clients come out of any challenge stronger. One recent example is the partnership with The Apical Group, an edible-oils manufacturer in Indonesia, to implement OPUS Terminal and its latest liquid bulk features at their terminal in Balikpapan. Through the project, the port operator has been able to speed up decision making using real-time operating data instead of traditional manual methods of managing jetty operations and checking valves– a much more time-consuming and resource-intensive approach. CyberLogitec was selected as the best partner to help them with supply chain traceability,as well as ensuring that operations can be performed at peak efficiency. Experience has shown that the OPUS Terminal TOS can be the catalyst to boost overall productivity and efficiency for CyberLogitec’s customers while contributing towards the customer’s drive for a more sustainable ecosystem.This year the organization has also implemented OPUS Terminal at Super Terminais in Manaus Brazil. A great example of a remote implementation with the project team based in Asia, it is helping them boost productivity, improve the accuracy of container inventory, and achieve higher overall operational efficiency with the help of the advanced container terminal features in OPUS Terminal. The company also ensures the current customers are continually cared for. Last year, it also helped a South Korean terminal operator to upgrade to its latest version of OPUS Terminal originally implemented in 2010. After this TOS upgrade, the client has been operating stably, improving the efficiency and convenience of operations for operators. With these recent improvements in conventional features of OPUS terminal combined with Advanced Modules, the organization has implemented and optimized processes through its Remote Go-Live approach to ensure the safety of employees and associates during this pandemic which ensures the clients’ timelines are met while operational disruptions are kept to a minimum in spite of the ongoing travel restrictions and social distancing guidelines.
CyberLogitec’s proven in-depth industry knowledge,experience and innovation has led towards its position as a leading provider of tech solutions covering the entire transportation network. Today, its focus on TOS solutions helps small ports bridge the efficiency gap to their larger peers and prepares them for making the smart port transition through advanced and future-proof features. The industry is constantly changing and the past year has been no different in that regard. CyberLogitec continues to challenge itself to reinvent and be ready for the new normal. As it begins to further introduce AI technology and IoT integration into its product line-up,CyberLogitec is entrenching its leadership position by widening its solutions suite,enabling it to explore new markets and opportunities. At CyberLogitec, their vision is to be the industry’s partner choice for success and to help steer customers towards a more automated and optimized future.
