Operated by a joint venture between Saigon Port, SSA International Holdings-Vietnam and Vinalines, the 1.2m teu capacity SSIT will play a critical role in shifting container volume from the existing ports in Ho Chi Minh City to less congested, deep water container terminals; will support container traffic in the South of Vietnam and address the region’s growing shipping needs. The new terminal
SSIT, which is projected to open in July 2011, will implement Tideworks’ suite of container terminal management software which will enable it to increase productivity by reducing vessel, barge and truck turn times, while maximising yard capacity.
Tideworks will provide complete systems integration services, ensuring its solutions interface with local customs authorities as well as mobile computing devices and vehicle mounted displays. Additionally, Tideworks’ TOS will interface with SSIT’s accounting system and comply with existing steamship line customers’ electronic data interchange (EDI) standards.
