Helping you buy the right systems for your facility
Make the right choice for managing your terminal operations and select the technology best adapted to manage and support operational processes. Implement technology to enhance and improve operations. Do not invest in technology to be trendy. We are here to assist you.
Select and implement technology to manage , control and optimise the Processes
A regular operational review by experts with worldwide experience will help you to overcome issues you might not recognise anymore because your staff is used to doing things a certain way for too long, based on “experience and habits”.
Efficient terminal management depends on the right choice of technology, such as a TOS (Terminal Operating System or Container management system), Position detections systems, gate systems, OCR..
Terminal processes need the right and adapted technology. PORTSandTERMINALS assists when defining, selecting, acquiring and supervising the implementation of technology. Our philosophy is that technology should support your terminal processes and should at the same time incorporate proven practices on your terminal. Technology should not limit or constrain operational processes.
Today, there are many technology solutions and various vendors. If you are looking to buy technology for your terminal, the expertise of PORTSandTERMINALS will help you make the right choice.
Whether you are looking for a Terminal Operating System (TOS), Port Management System (PMIS) or other IT solutions such as gate automation systems, position detection systems, OCR systems for quay cranes and equipment or an access control system. We define the operational processes and technological requirements to find the best match with the offering available in the market.
Our full range of services starts with the definition of the requirements and operational processes and lead to the final selection of the vendor meeting the expectations for your operational environment.
Typically, these expectations are of a technical, contractual and service nature.
Based on these expectations and on our expertise, we will write your RFI (Request For Information) and the RFP (Request For Proposal).
Trial scenarios and proofs of concept may also be part of this selection process. We will organise and lead vendor meetings to obtain in-depth information and validate the vendors’ proposals.
This process will eventually lead to a shortlist of preferred vendors.
Together with your purchase and technical department we will negotiate the purchase, implementation and service contracts with the preferred vendors.
After the selection of the vendor, PORTSandTERMINALS can supervise the implementation of the technology and assist with acceptance testing and follow up health checks.
Deliverables may include: process descriptions, proposals for operational improvement, RFI (Request for Information), RFP (Request for Proposal), short listing of vendors following a proven methodology, definition of test cases, final vendor selection, assistance during contract negotiations, follow up and guidance during technology implementation, supervision of acceptance testing, assistance during health checks,…
