IT solutions provider CyberLogitec will implement its OPUS terminal operating system (TOS) at Turkey’s Safiport Derince as part of a project to develop the port’s container facilities.
The Safi Holding-operated container terminal, which is located in Turkey’s Marmara region, is set to go live with OPUS Terminal in the first quarter of 2019.
The TOS, which is expected to increase the terminal’s ability to move ships quickly, allows for the facilities’ operations to be managed under a single integrated platform through combined planning, operation, Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) and management supporting systems.
As part of its development project, Safiport Derince, which has a 2.5 km dock with an 18 m water draft, will also increase its port area from the current 600,000 to 1.2m sq m.
Additionally, the port aims to increase its annual container capacity to 2.5m teu in the future.
Safiport Derince’s IT manager Tanzer Genç said: “It is our goal to be recognised as the most advanced terminal operator in Turkey. By implementing CyberLogitec’s OPUS Terminal, we believe that Safi will be able to better support its customers, streamline operational processes and enhance efficiency.”
