Define terminal and yard areas for all types of cargo and operations, create user-specific terminal layout views that let each user see the areas that matter most to them, and see all cargo in real time, using current, short-term, or long-term planning modes. Fully audit all planning operations, provide support for labor working within your site, and automatically plan yard locations for any operation and all cargoes. Prioritize, categorize, and schedule your next day’s work, create ‘To Do’ tasks on containers and cargo, and track Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on yard operations.
Manage gates in real time on touchscreen and mobile devices, controlling and monitoring truck and cargo movement to increase efficiency. Keep detailed information about vehicle visits, instantly control and monitor gate flows, and integrate gate operations with both pre-advice processing and your truck visit appointment system. Get real-time updates on all truck processing within the terminal, monitor and analyze detailed KPIs, and speed up inter-terminal cargo transfers by allowing rapid access with no data entry. PIN and gate touchscreen kiosks ensure paperless rapid throughput.
Make fully informed decisions, with ship and yard operations integrated in one seamless system. Define vessels, see and control operations in real time, and report and compare a full history of vessel visits. Allocate jobs between crane resources, and track progress with graphical displays. Plan break bulk, bulk, and general cargo in detail, and handle detailed Lift-On/Lift-Off (LOLO) and Roll-On/Roll-Off (RORO) planning and operations. Configure and automate cargo stops, and aid management decision-making by monitoring vessel operation performance.
Use handheld and vehicle-mounted mobile devices wherever your cargo goes, including in the yard, on ship, and within warehousing and general cargo operations. Convenient and flexible, mobile device applications access Master Terminal using Wi-Fi or cellular connections, feature touch screens with easy to follow graphical user interfaces, and support for multiple languages. Role-based security allows system administrators to configure which mobile device functions are available to each handheld application user.
Manage and track train schedules and wagon fleets, and easily share the right data with train companies. Control all weight and dimension rules for rail wagons, handle containers of varying sizes, and manage full train scheduling. Control operations in real time, see graphical views of trains and rail areas for planning and operations, complete planning before trains arrive, and automatically plan train load and discharge.
Use powerful and flexible built-in reporting to create an extensive range of reports and save them in accessible formats such as CSV, PDF, XML, or HTML. Reports can be customized to meet specific requirements, integrated into users’ menus so they are easy to find, and automatically scheduled to be sent to email recipients. Data can be exported for archiving, data warehousing, or processing by other systems.
Configure and track charges and invoices for every cargo event. Automatically charge for all cargo and vessel activities, including yard storage, in real time, with fully configurable invoice creation. Handle flexible tariffs and rates, multiple currencies, and cash payments. Integrate with standard invoicing systems, output invoice data for auto-emailed invoices, and track and trace any invoice back to its source.
Integrate Master Terminal with your general ledger system, port hardware, peripherals, and more. Mechanisms for interfacing to third-party systems include EDI, file export, web services, SQL, and real-time TCP/IP connections. Over 80 standard EDI formats are supported, plus custom EDI formats can be defined. Peripheral devices are supported, including printers, barcode scanners, radio data terminals, in-machine electronic scales, weigh bridges, and external gate systems.
Control access to the system with a unique user name and password for each user, and grant permissions to control exactly what each user can view and update. Securely store data within a high-performance database and export data to an SQL server for archiving or data warehousing. Protect your data with full disaster recovery from built-in replication technology and Master Care’s expertise.
Master Terminal’s warehousing functionality allows you to easily and efficiently manage cargo storage – a key way to attract new business and revenue streams. Define any terminal area as a general cargo area for warehousing. Within this area, you can define any combination of ground and rack locations and assign them unique identifiers. View current capacities with a highly graphical display, use handheld applications to manage cargo, and configure billing by storage area, operator, or cargo attributes.
Managing your harbor requirements is easy with Master Terminal’s harbor management solution. The highly intuitive graphical user interface allows you to easily manage the complex problem of scheduling vessel visits, resources, and personnel in busy ports. Harbor management is multi-terminal-capable, allowing you to schedule visits across terminals with multiple harbors and berths. Dynamic tidal modeling provides intelligence to safely manage arrival and departure movements in harbors with significant tidal movement.
Manage the flow of vehicles throughout your gate operations. Schedule when transport operator vehicles can visit your terminal to evenly distribute the flow of vehicles throughout the hours of operation, and make better use of machinery on the port. By booking vehicle visits, transport operators can reduce vehicle waiting times and improve fleet utilization. Less queuing at the gate also means lower fuel costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
Configure your terminal into one or more sub-terminals to represent different divisions on your port. For instance a terminal can be divided into warehouse, empty depot, and yard division sub-terminals. Operate each of these sub-terminals as a separate business unit with distinct invoicing charges and EDI messaging.
Ensure safety on your yard by separating machine and man. Master Terminal’s Labor On Block functionality allows areas of your port to be demarcated as to where machinery cannot operate. This ensures port staff and third party maintenance staff can operate in areas of your port with confidence that their safety is paramount. An expiry date and time can be applied to Labor On Block to minimize disruptions to your day-to-day operations.
