Oiling the Wheels with IT

Modern container terminals would simply not be viable without terminal operating systems (TOS). For facilities today, a high-performing TOS can often be the essential ingredient for good productivity, whether that be at the quayside, in the yard or at the gate. Many terminals, especially the larger-scale ones, like to develop their own tailor-made TOS. A spokesperson for one large global operator told CM that developing an in-house TOS can be a sensible option if the terminal operator has the scale to justify it.
