Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has successfully deployed TCS DynaPORT, a terminal operating system at Tilbury2 Ro-Ro, Forth Ports’ latest unaccompanied freight ferry terminal opened recently in London.
Tilbury2 Ro-Ro terminal is a 500,000-freight unit ferry terminal at the port of Tilbury on the River Thames, London. To streamline its operations, establish world-class benchmarks, and support its future growth, Forth Ports selected TCS’ DynaPORT as its terminal operating system. The platform is already implemented within Forth Ports Lo-Lo container terminals operating at the Port of Tilbury and the Port of Grangemouth in Scotland, allowing all three freight terminals to operate on the same IT platform.
TCS DynaPORT is a one-stop digital terminal operating solution that streamlines order-to-invoice processes and supports multi-modal (vessel, rail, truck and barge) and multi-purpose (container, break- bulk, liquid bulk, dry bulk and ro-ro) requirements. It currently powers over 80 terminals across the globe.
Sridharan Narayanan, Global Head – Ports & Cargo, Travel, Transportation and Hospitality business, TCS said, “We are delighted to deepen our long-standing partnership with Forth Ports and partner them in this strategic growth and transformation initiative. We have leveraged our deep contextual knowledge to design a solution that best addresses Forth Ports’ business needs and deployed it on schedule with both our teams working from home using SBWS.”
Stuart Wallace, Chief Operating Officer, Forth Ports said, “The successful implementation of this brand-new system was only made possible by TCS’ ability to deliver at short notice and with agility. The team had an intimate understanding of the detail of our requirements and were able to produce efficient and user-friendly solutions that are fit for purpose; in this regard the TCS team is in a class of its own.”
