DP World Limassol has implemented a new cloud-based Terminal Operating System (TOS) at the Cyprus facility, which will be used to share real-time data on vessel, yard, gate and rail movements among supply chain stakeholders.
The ZODIAC TOS, first developed by DP World in 2016, will also offer new functionality for Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), digital documentation, flexible reporting, smart planning components and web-enabled user interfaces, allowing a range of administrative duties carried out by terminal staff to now be automated.
“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,” said DP World Limassol’s CEO, Nawaf Abdulla.
“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 to reduce terminal operation maintenance cost 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.”
Approximately 34 of DP World’s 80 terminals across the globe are now using the ZODIAC TOS, with all of the firm’s terminals expected to have the software implemented by 2023. The roll-out in Limassol is the first time ZODIAC has been implemented to serve mixed cargo operations.
