“We wanted to use Master Terminal to manage general cargo, we are not just a container port. We have all sorts of cargo – cars, trailers, etc. Most products are only able to manage containers. The ability to accommodate planning for Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) shipping was very important when selecting a TOS, as the Messina fleet is composed 90% of RORO vessels.”
Project Manager, Messina Line
If your terminal is configured to handle Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) vessels then you need a terminal operating system (TOS) that can cope with the complexities that this presents. Master Terminal has been designed to cater for all cargo types, not just containers, making it the TOS of choice for RORO terminals.
For ease of use, RORO cargo is handled the same way as other Master Terminal cargo with similar screens and processes used. Functionality includes a full graphic display of each RORO deck at all stages of operations, and highly detailed definitions of each deck including vehicle lanes, deck layout, ramps, pillars, and container twistlock grids.
Manage RORO vessels that carry wheeled cargo, such as automobiles, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars.
Define the layout of a RORO deck graphically, including the actual structure, ramps, lifts, equipment areas, fixed container positions and vehicle lanes. Define cargo stow layout on each deck including containers, vehicle lanes and general cargo polygon areas.
Full graphic display of each RORO deck at all stages of operation.
Detailed discharge and load planning, and jobs resulting in full and ordered operations.
Empty release request to RORO decks for empty containers.
Handles Double-Lift Restow (DLR) and Shift on Board (SOB) moves.
