DUBAI : The CARGOES team of DP World has announced a new Ports and Terminal Solutions category on its suite of enterprise products and services. The announcement came on the first day of the CARGOES Digital Trade Flow event.
The new category will focus on four key sub-categories, including Internet of Things (IOT+), Advanced Video Analytics (AVA+), General Cargo (GC+), and Terminal Operating System products (TOS+) that will house different products.
The TOS + section will support integration and is available in 70% of DP World’s ports and other existing port software for advanced process automation. AVA+ will provide terminals with image recognition solutions to ID container information, damage and more. GC+ will provide general cargo SaaS in a single-window solution, and TOS+ will provide a foundational suite that allows for operations and planning, billing and more.
“We are one of the key smart solutions technology players in the ports and terminals industry,” said Dr Mohamed Rahmah, Vice President of Zodiac – DP World. “Today, I can proudly say that we are the most advanced ports and terminals solutions provider. We’ve made several comparisons over the years, and there is a major gap between our solutions and others.
“To be honest, we found that we are more advanced in the way we use and apply future technologies to real-life terminal scenarios.”
Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group Chairman and CEO of DP World, added “I am really proud to see my team launch CARGOES Ports & Terminals solutions which has been developed by our DP World team. I enjoy talking with the team at the DP World Flow Pavilion and engaging with our valued customers and partners.
“Digital technology in our business is crucial. If the cargo does not reach the customer, it’s a problem, and this is why we have invested $4 billion in technology since 2016. CARGOES Ports and Terminals solutions are easy to implement because it is cloud-based and scalable. Our goal, to get cargo faster to customers.
“DP World was solely seen as a port operator, our role, within the port. But this created risk for us as accountability was a grey area. Hence, we decided to redefine our role ‘from the factory floor to the customer’s door’. We will not necessarily replicate every part of the supply chain, but at least we will be involved, take charge, and add value.
“Today we are a smart logistics and trade company, ready to provide the most advanced physical and technological solutions.”
DP World has previously launched CARGOES Finance – a new financing solution and fintech platform providing access to finance to support small-to-medium sized businesses. Announced in October 2021, the new platform provides exporters, importers, and logistics companies with access to financing solutions, supporting them in global expansion.
