Innovative new digital Terminal Operating System further enhances the efficiency and productivity of the Limassol port
Limassol Cyprus, 23 February 2020: DP World Limassol has implemented the new ZODIAC cloud-based Terminal Operating System (TOS), as part of its efforts to optimise the Limassol port’s operations, by embracing digitisation and automation.
ZODIAC TOS offers an integrated platform, providing all supply chain users with real-time information on vessel, yard, gate and rail movements. Other features include advanced Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), digital documentation, flexible reporting, smart planning components and web-enabled user interfaces.
The newly developed operating system will boost the efficiency and productivity of the DP World Limassol terminal, whilst improving customer experience. Many of the administrative duties of terminal staff will now be automated, freeing them up to focus on efficiency, quality, and customer relations.
Dr. Mohamed Rahmah, Head of ZODIAC, said: “We are now offering the global port and terminal market our complete ZODIAC software solutions portfolio, which encompasses TOS as well as automated gate systems and other terminal management systems for improved cargo and container performance.”
“With approximately 34 of DP World’s 80 terminals across the globe now using our TOS, we are aiming for 100% of the firm’s terminals to be running on ZODIAC software solutions by 2023.”
The rollout of the innovative solution in Limassol marks another successful ZODIAC implementation to add to the growing number within the DP World group, but also represents the first time ZODIAC has implemented a cloud-based TOS serving mixed cargoes operations.
DP World Limassol’s CEO, Nawaf Abdulla said: “As a competitive and forward-thinking business, DP World has always invested heavily in state-of-the-art digital equipment and is continuously introducing new innovations in terminal operations that boost resilience and automation, thereby allowing us to evolve and enhance the services we offer our customers.”
“The ZODIAC cloud-based TOS is easy to use and offers a seamless web interface for managing our operations, connecting all supply chain participants with a single integrated platform and increasing the speed and accuracy of our operations, while allowing more flexibility for our customers and users.”
“The migration into ZODIAC TOS is a milestone for us in DP World Limassol. The new system helps us reduce terminal operating and maintenance costs and improve productivity by identifying any bottlenecks. This is a great achievement for the team, and we look forward to introducing further features and automations that our customers and staff can benefit from.”
