Jade wins Salerno TOS contract
Port operator Salerno Container Terminal (SCT) has selected Jade’s Master Terminal to run its Italian operation.
Jade’s flagship Terminal Operating System (TOS), will replace SCT’s legacy system which is gradually being phased out of the market.
This deal enhances Jade’s growing reputation as the leader in the mixed cargo terminal market and further extends its footprint in Europe.
David Lindsay, Jade CEO, said: “Jade has a strong connection with the Italian market and we are thrilled about building this new relationship with SCT.”
He added: “Between our Rotterdam office, newly opened development centre in Geneva, and our New Zealand based team, we are fully committed to supporting SCT throughout this project and beyond, as well as supporting further growth in Europe.”
SCT has been developed as a major private container terminal to cope with the increasing shipping demands in the area.
It handles approximately 400,000 TEUs per annum, and with increasing volumes of roll-on-roll-off cargo and serves the area from Rome to Bari, Naples and Salerno, via direct links with the Italian highway and railway networks.
Massimiliano Riccardi, commercial director at SCT, said: “After a comprehensive evaluation process Master Terminal was the only system that offered all the functionality and flexibility required to not only replace our legacy system, but also support the future needs of our business.”
“Jade’s experience in the container and project cargo market, combined with their impressive implementation capability, gave us the confidence we needed to ensure a successful transition project and a sound platform for growth,” he added.
Implementation is expected to commence later this year and is should take less than six months.
This is the sixth new business win for Jade Master Terminal in 2016.
