DP World has announced that CARGOES By DP World – a suite of enterprise solutions for the world of logistics and trade – has completed the implementation of its TOS+ solution in the Port of Limassol, Cyprus.

CARGOES TOS+ provides ports with a library of Terminal Operating solutions from documentation and billing management to consolidation and de-consolidation of cargo and more. CARGOES TOS+ is part of the broader CARGOES suite of software, which plans to enable the future of modern smart logistics globally. CARGOES TOS+ is said to support integrations with a variety of third parties and is available on 70.0% of DP World’s ports.

CARGOES TOS+ replaces the previous bulk and container solutions at the terminal. It is now handling container, general cargo and roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) activity. The company states that during a trial where the old system and the new solution were run concurrently, there was a large drop in radio chatter as equipment operators switched to devices for receiving instructions, resulting in increased productivity. During the testing process, the results outperformed expectations finishing a full week ahead of schedule.

Nawaf Abdulla, CEO, DP World Limassol, said: “Moving to an entirely cloud-based solution enables greater flexibility and fluidity during a time of immense pressure for the industry. DP World Limassol is the first terminal in the group to upgrade its software to the latest version of Cargoes TOS+ and General Cargo (GC+) cloud modules.”

“CARGOES TOS+ will suggest predictive maintenance to reduce operating costs, improve productivity by identifying bottlenecks, and optimise the terminal’s operational fleets and resource usage.”
