Verbrugge to update operating systems at three terminals

Dutch logistics service provider Verbrugge International is to introduce new Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) across three of its locations in The Netherlands, following the agreement of a new deal with software provider Konecranes.

The agreement includes non-containerised and containerised cargo operations, with implementation planned for 2024 and 2025.

The software will be used to manage port and inland terminal operations covering dry bulk, general cargo, RoRo, project cargo and container handling, regulating the movement and storage of different cargo types within the terminal and optimising asset utilisation with real-time data.

“We are facing the challenges of automating our terminals, which have different and complex systems running to manage all operations,” said Verbrugge International CFO, Carlo Broeren.

“We’re a logistics service provider and not a software company, although we always tried to deliver the best service to our clients, but time progresses. So instead of relying on building an in-house system we investigated the market for a best-in-class software solution and chose the software solution from Konecranes.”

The companies have also agreed to integrate the new software with Verbrugge’s existing finance systems and real-time data sources like weighbridges, used to measure bulk cargo flows in and out of the terminal.
