Mixed cargo

Master Terminal: Managing mixed cargo since 1993

Mixed cargo

If your terminal is trying to solve the problem of managing a variety of cargo types with one system, then look no further. Master Terminal has been designed to manage all cargo types, making it the Terminal Operating System (TOS) of choice for mixed cargo terminals.

Our stable and comprehensive software ensures you don’t have to spend time and money customizing a TOS built specifically for handling containers. Use our software to gain a single view of your operations, enabling you to make smarter decisions faster, which will maximize your operational efficiency and improve your competitiveness.

General cargo

Along with containers, and RORO cargo (Roll-On/Roll-Off), Master Terminal allows you to manage all types of general cargo including:

Break Bulk

Break bulk

Bags, barrels, drums, pallets, boxes, sacks, cartons, crates, lumber, paper, steel.



Liquid bulk: Petroleum, gasoline, LNG, chemicals, juice, wine, molasses, vegetable oil.

Dry bulk: Grain, sand and gravel, scrap metal, coal, iron ore, bauxite, cement, clinker, fertilizer.

Project cargo

Project cargo

Generators, turbines, reactors, boilers, towers, presses, casting, heaters, aircraft parts, locomotives, boats, satellites, military equipment.

Break bulk cargo

Break bulk cargo that is transported in boxes, crates, drums, barrels, or pallets can all be managed by our software through tasks such as warehousing, stuffing, and unstuffing. Master Terminal is fully integrated, giving operators complete access to systems information and a large number of tools. Operators can create an unlimited number of general cargo classes and specify which classes are available at individual terminals. They can also define cargo packaging and handling, as well as create and on-sell private warehouse space, including order and pick-list processing.

Bulk cargo

Master Terminal allows you to handle and track bulk cargo types such as coal, woodchips, and grain by weight and volume. Bulk cargo can be allocated an ID enabling you to track cargo moves, loads, and inventory. Master Terminal allows you to maintain a total of how much product makes up the bulk cargo, to split and merge bulk cargo, and produce bulk cargo invoices and reports.

Project cargo

Master Terminal caters for project cargo, helping facilitate the transportation of large, heavy, high-value, or critical pieces of cargo that are essential to a project. Our software assists your port to handle heavy or oversized items that are too large to fit into standard containers, and to deal with shipments made of various components that need disassembly for shipment and reassembly after delivery. Common project cargo types include generators, turbines, reactors, boilers, towers, casting, heaters, presses, locomotives, boats, satellites, and military equipment.

Track and manage logs as a specific cargo type, and use unique identifiers to individually track each log from arrival to load out. Scan logs with a handheld device when they enter the port, track current stock levels with Master Terminal’s graphical view of terminal locations and areas, and manage storage areas visually to make best use of log stowage areas depending on log sizes and characteristics. Report log receivals, log stocks, log releases, perform historical analysis based on the forest management data collected as part of the log handling process, and meet Forestry Stewardship Certification (FSC) requirements with log dockets that record each log’s full history.
