Container & Conventional

Container Terminal Operating System

Our new container terminal operating system, OPUS Terminal by Cyberlogitec, has gone live since December 2017. The entire operation is managed under a single integrated umbrella through combined planning, operation, EDI and KPI Dashboard analysis.
 
 AVP (Advanced Vessel Plan) and AYP (Advanced Yard Plan) provides automated ship operation and efficient use of yard space. TLS (Terminal Logistics System) is an asset management system that streamlines equipment work queue based on individual workload. These features allow terminals to minimize equipment movement, save turnaround time, increase operational productivity and reduce schedule inaccuracy.

Advanced Vessel Planning
AVP (Advanced Vessel Planning) is an automatic process planner that localizes towards each vessels’ needs. OPUS Terminal combines EDI information, container status, equipment position and workload information from equipment and vessels. By optimizing discharging/loading sequence based on this data, operators benefit from shorter turnaround time and less gap between operation and planning. Higher productivity is accomplished through reduced container re-handling in the yard and minimized un-laden traveling of equipment.

Terminal Logistics System 
TLS (Terminal Logistics System) provides total management of all equipment workflow within the terminal. TLS individually assigns and balances workload for each equipment based on its condition and work queue. Coordinating equipment work process minimizes waiting time so that containers can travel from end-to-end on schedule seamlessly. Single platform managing from Gate, Vessel, Rail and to Yard process optimizes the terminal process as a whole and allows operators to respond to problems quickly.

Advanced Yard Allocation 
AYA (Advanced Yard Allocation) is a container distribution platform that resourcefully distributes container movement in the yard. Containers that enter from gate are instantly arranged a place in the yard significantly reducing re-handling work. Unloaded containers from vessels are practically allocated to the yard based on QC work queue and vessel’s stowage location. AYA taking care of overall container distribution significantly decreases terminal turn time of external trucks within the terminal.

Interface Standard
OPUS Terminal is a platform solution that tightly integrates different terminal protocols into one cohesive unit. Mixture of different assets and systems often impedes terminal integrity and productivity. Under a single umbrella, terminals can be now managed with efficiency, stability and trouble-shooting.

With planning capability tightly coupled with operations which captures real-time movements within the container terminal, our overall operations monitoring, optimized equipment utilization and resource allocation enable Westports to meet the next decade's demands in terms of productivity and increasing throughput.

E-Conventional Cargo System (E-CCS)

Conventional Cargo System

In Westports Malaysia’s Conventional system, NGCCS (New Generation Conventional Cargo System) has been in implementation for more than 10 years and over the period of time, some enhancement have been made to the system to improve its functionality. However, many processes still involved manual tasks where customers submit manually written forms and Westports staffs will then transfer the data into the system. Therefore, we saw room for automation in these areas and this gave a kick start to our new IT project.

Based on requirements, our IT Team consolidated and upgraded the functions of NGCCS and CTCMS into a new single platform called E-Conventional Cargo System (E-CCS).  The informative and user-friendly E-CCS was officially implemented on 1/4/2015. Besides automating manual processes which will improve their operational efficiency, the project also aims to meet our customers’ growing demands, ensure faster turnaround of dynamic changes and needs, while improving productivity monitoring.

This consolidated new E-CCS system controls all work processes in conventional cargo operations for Dry Bulk, Break Bulk, Liquid Bulk, Warehouse and RORO terminals. Its goals are to simplify and automate the conventional cargo processes from documentation, operation to billing.
