E-Bidding, TETRA & Wireless

E-Bidding

E-Bidding

The electronic and web based e-bidding system allows Westports to meet a global supply base and to receive bids or tenders from both local and international players. E-bidding is user-friendly, secured and transparent.

Leveraging on this technology, Westports can increase efficacy of buying, sourcing, ordering, logistics tracking and payment processes.

TETRA

TETRA

TETRA is an abbreviation of Terrestrial Trunked Radio. TETRA is a global standard for radio communication in the same way that GSM is the mobile telephony standard. TETRA is an advanced digital radio system to support and improve operations throughout Westports.

Deployed in 2008, indoor and outdoor radio communication between operation control centre and terminal equipment operators has significantly improved.

Wireless

Wireless

This spread spectrum solution enhances Westports's productivity and efficiency; especially in terms of tracking positions and movements of all containers throughout the terminal.

A typical process involves using handheld units to record the arrival of incoming containers as they are discharged from the vessel at the quayside; this system determined position is downloaded into vehicle mounted computers on the yard equipment; and this process is repeated for outgoing containers, when they are loaded onto another vessel, truck or rail.
