Three features of Terminal Operating System that brings terminal performance enhancement.
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.
Terminal Operating System(TOS) has applied the latest IT technology for the needs; it guarantees high system reliability with transaction load balancing at peak time. Moreover, TOS offers a high system flexibility & scalability which enables our customers to save the TCO(Total Cost of Ownership). For that matter, there is always natural eager to choose proper TOS for terminal itself for better performance.
1. Optimized yard operation
Optimized yard operation of TOS 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. It 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
To satisfy these functions, CyberLogitec has OPUS Terminal applied TLC (Terminal Logistics Control) system on it.
2. Yard equipment pooling
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.
3. Resource management
Resource Management system supports resource planning and management for labor and equipment to save terminal running costs. Adopting lean management logic, Resource Management system minimizes the terminal’s unnecessary manual work and maximizes the operation productivity.
4. Value-added management
TOS should offers comprehensive systems for integrated terminal operation:
- Gate, CFS and M&R Operation
- Statistics & Analysis Report
- Document Management
- EDI & Web Service
- Billing & Customs
OPUS Terminal, The Proven TOS for the Terminal Operation.
CyberLogitec OPUS Terminal is the Terminal Operating System suitable and optimized for conventional as well as automated terminal operation, which provides all the functions above customizing for each terminal’s conditions. 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.
PNC (Pusan Newport Company) is a good example for it. Performance of the terminal has enhanced tremendously. Considering 46% throughput increase as it was 160,000 TEU per month to 233,000 TEU per month after TOS replacement it is now.
