Abu Dhabi Ports is implementing a brand new terminal operating system (TOS) which will enhance general cargo operations, significantly improving processing times and the full range of customer service offerings.
Jade Software’s “Master Terminal” management software will replace Abu Dhabi Ports‘ existing systems and support the management of all aspects of general cargo operations including bulk, break bulk, project and ro-ro cargoes.
Master Terminal will provide real-time information about cargo flows 24/7, improve the utilisation of port facilities and increase productivity with regards to operations, planning and reporting procedures.
Gary Lemke, Executive VP, Ports Unit, Abu Dhabi Ports said that Abu Dhabi selected Master Terminal because it was the best product to meet the requirements of boosting service offerings and support in handling the growing general cargo volumes. “Jade Software also brings a wealth of experience in general cargo operations and this knowledge is crucial to us as we transform our business to be the leading general cargo operator and port of choice in the region,” Lemke added.
Master Terminal will be installed during the second quarter of this year. The first two ports to be implemented will be Khalifa Port and Zayed Port, as both ports play key roles in the UAE’s import and export business, with an annual cargo capacity of 20m tonnes.
