Modern Terminals upgrades TOS software in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay

Modern Terminals Limited reports that it has completed an upgrade of its Terminal Operating System (TOS), used to manage operations in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay.

The terminals have been updated to Navis’ latest N4 application, to assist in optimising operations through better data access and analytics.

“Our TOS is one of the keys to delivering high levels of productivity and efficiency in our operations,” said Michael Yip, Chief Innovation Officer at Modern Terminals Limited.

“With the updated system in place, we are well positioned to not only meet the needs of our shipping line customers today but also support our future plans to bring in more digital initiatives to our terminals in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay.”

Modern Terminals opened Hong Kong’s first purpose-built container-handling facility in 1972. Today, it owns and operates container terminals at Kwai Tsing Container Port in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay Terminals in the Pearl River Delta.

The ports in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay have a total of 42 quay cranes and 146 RTGs, handling more than 6.5 million TEUs on an annual basis. Due to international COVID travel restrictions, the go-lives at both locations were supported remotely by Navis.

“During a high stakes environment for the global supply chain industry, we are thrilled to work together with the Modern Terminals team to further advance its terminal operations and reach its business goals with the latest version of N4,” said David Houser, VP and GM of Asia-Pacific at Navis.

“With our intelligent TOS connecting the dots throughout the terminals, Modern Terminals has all the data it needs at its fingertips to make real time business decisions; building its reputation as a reliable gateway to keep cargo flowing smoothly in the region.”
