Halterm opened the first container terminal in Halifax more than 40 years ago and it continues to be one of the largest in Canada, with an annual throughput capacity of 700,000 teu. Recently the terminal sought to replace its legacy TOS, which had been in operation for a number of years.
According to a Tideworks statement, Halterm wanted to modernise its technology platform and adopt an innovative set of TOS solutions, provided by a stable technology partner that could support its long-term needs. After a competitive selection process, Halterm chose Tideworks, given its comprehensive TOS solutions and reputation for providing excellent after-sales support.
Tideworks will deploy its suite of integrated TOS solutions including Mainsail Vanguard®, Spinnaker Planning Management System®, Traffic Control™, Forecast® and Digital Bridge™, its business intelligence and key performance indicator monitoring tool. In addition, it will provide its GateVision® gate operating system to streamline gate activity. Finally, it will develop messaging to interface with Canadian Customs and provide ongoing support of the system server hardware.
