Apical Balikpapan, part of Apical Group, has announced the signing of a partnership agreement with terminal operating system (TOS) provider CyberLogitec to implement its OPUS Terminal system at Apical Balikpapan’s new terminal in Indonesia.
The technology will be used to improve supply chain traceability and optimise throughput of liquid bulk shipments in support of Apical’s expansion of the berth and storage facilities at its own dedicated terminal, inaugurated in 2020.
The new TOS will offer data-backed intelligence to allow the port operator to make informed decisions based on real time operating data, to increase productivity and reduce terminal response times.
“As the world’s leading palm oil exporting country, optimised and data-centric container port operations around Indonesia can help boost overall competitivity of Indonesian palm oil. This also represents a point of importance as the industry strives for greater sustainability,” said Peter Setiabudi, Director of PT Kutai Refinery Nusantara.
“Cutting edge TOS will allow Apical greater traceability of imports and exports and minimises any margins of error to ensure we have full visibility around products handled through the port. We hope that our move to modernise our port operations will inspire others in their own journeys in sustainability.”
