Portsmouth to digitalise TOS
Portsmouth International Port has awarded a contract to Hogia to supply a terminal operating system (TOS) to digitalise the management of freight transport and increase operational efficiency.
Hogia's TOS is a standard system that provides a shared platform for port staff and ferry operators, enabling the terminal operations to be managed digitally. TOS has an open interface and is easily integrated with third-party applications, such as the shipping companies' own booking systems.
The information held in TOS makes it easy to identify freight units arriving at the terminal gate and to assign the units to a known location on the terminal. The information can be made available to both port operations staff and ferry operators.
Mike Sellers, Portsmouth International Port’s director, said: “Using Hogia's terminal operating system (TOS) is the first step towards digitalisation for our terminal operations. It will make terminal operations more efficient, enable us to provide a higher quality of service for our customers, and provide a more competitive edge. Importantly it gives us more flexibility, paving the way for the future and securing the capacity we need to meet the growing demand for freight transport.”
Terminal managers also benefit through the ability to generate detailed operational and management reports and statistics regarding various aspects of the terminal’s operation.
