Gulftainer wins top honours at Logistics ME Awards

DUBAI, April 30, 2017

Gulftainer, a leading privately-owned independent terminal operating and logistics company, was honoured at the Logistics Middle East Awards 2017 held recently in Dubai, UAE.

The company won the main award in the ‘Technology Implementation of the Year’ category, said a statement from Gulftrainer.

It was recognised for the successful implementation of its hitech Marine and Container Handling (Mach) Terminal Operating System (Tos), which marks a major technology milestone for Gulftainer and the industry at large, it said.

Since 2016, Gulftainer has been rolling out Mach Tos, which it implemented in association with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), in a phased manner across its terminals in the UAE.

The customised software provides Gulftainer with computerised control and management of container storage and movement, enhancing its ability to proactively identify and solve problems, it added.

Mach Tos also contains innovative functions related to the optimisation of job orders, vehicle routing processes for container pick-up and delivery as well as the management of travel distances within the terminal.

TCS, which has extensive experience in working with port operators, said Gulftainer’s Mach Tos rollout at the Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT) was achieved without a single glitch, and was the most successful implementation it has facilitated globally, said a statement.

Vinay Sharma, group IT head, Gulftainer, said: “In view of our continued efforts to stay ahead of the technology curve through enhancing our operating processes and customer service, we are extremely proud to receive industry recognition for this aspect of our work.”

The event recognises industry players for excellence in the region’s supply chain and logistics space. The awards received several nominations across 13 award categories. Other nominees in the ‘Technology Implementation of the Year’ category included DP World, Al Futtaim Logistics, FlyDubai Cargo, Unitechnik and Globe Express, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
