TOTE has gone live with a new terminal operating system (TOS) at its Jacksonville terminal, implementing the Mainsail 10 system from Tideworks Technology to assist in digitalising management of its operations.
The project was Tideworks’ first cloud-based deployment of Mainsail 10, and the company says that it plans to do further remote implementations of its systems for other terminals in the future after completing this project.
The Mainsail 10 TOS supports integrations with third-party software and provides access to real-time data to improve decision making and increase the flow of cargo through the terminal. TOTE Jacksonville is the first TOTE terminal to deploy the application, which is being hosted and supported in the Tideworks Cloud.
“The successful go-live of Mainsail 10 at TOTE Jacksonville is an exciting milestone,” said Thomas Rucker, president of Tideworks.
“We recognise the importance of TOTE providing its terminals with a flexible, intelligent TOS that will help accelerate growth and productivity at Jacksonville, while also increasing collaboration across the shipping industry.”
The new software at the Jacksonville terminal replaced an existing Mainsail Vanguard system that TOTE implemented in late 2015. The Jacksonville terminal is also utilising Tideworks’ Spinnaker Planning Management System and Traffic Control applications.
Following the success of the project TOTE has already started work on plans to introduce Mainsail 10 at its terminal in Tacoma, Washington in 2021 and its terminal in Anchorage, Alaska in 2022.
