8.4.2.120 Bulk Gate

Bulk Gate

A new gate screen has been added to Master Terminal to allow better handling of bulk cargo types where no terminal machines are active in Master Terminal and the process basically involves taking a weight on the inward and then again on the outward parts of the process.

Bulk Gate in and Bulk Gate Out.



Bulk Gate In 

This new screen uses a release request or a booking in the ‘New Item’ field to identify the cargo involved.


This screen takes the weight of the truck for release requests or the weight of the truck and cargo for bookings.

The weight is recorded on the vehicle visit record.

The scale weight can be manually entered or retrieved from a weight scale interface.

Release Requests in the ‘Bulk Gate In’ rely upon matching yard allocations to identify matching cargo. Cargo cannot be manually picked from the terminal. A report will instruct the truck where to go in the terminal.

Bookings in the ‘Bulk Gate In’ rely upon matching yard allocations to identify a storage area in the terminal. Locations cannot be manually picked from the terminal. A report will instruct the truck where to go in the terminal.



Bulk Gate Out

This screen lists the current bulk gate jobs. Selecting the job for the out going truck allows a second weight to be recorded.


The scale weight is recorded on the vehicle visit record.

The scale weight can be manually entered or retrieved from a weight scale interface.

Clicking SAVE will do the following:

1. The difference between the 2 weighing s i.e. the truck and it’s cargo and the ’empty’ truck gets the cargo weight. 
2. The cargo is identified based on the assumption during the bulk gate in and the yard allocations used.
3. The appropriate amount of cargo is split/moved from the yard area to the truck.
4. The truck and cargo will be road exited.

There is no need to use the road operations screen.
No user is involved during the process within the yard i.e. no hand held apps or vehicle mounted.


Bulk Gate is available in Master Terminal 851.020.
