  • Optimises CAPEX, reduces OPEX, enhances safety & operational stability, improving your use of infrastructure.
  • Experienced implementation partner to support your project.

Software built for:

Equipment Control

Automation of terminal operations holds many promises: cheaper and safer operations, less emissions, and better infrastructure utilization. More importantly, automation should guarantee a high performance and a reliable operation. However, the high complexity of a live terminal poses equally high demands on the control of automated equipment.

Proven High Productivity

Supports any type of automated equipment with a proven high performance, based on advanced simulation

Improved Reliability

Guaranteed availability and performance.

Operational Workflows

Standard support for all normal operational workflows and flexible customization to suit your terminal’s special workflows

Low Operational Costs

Automation gives fast return on investment whilst optimising your resourcing needs

Automated Scheduling

TEAMS ECS supports fully automated scheduling for all types of equipment, both automated and manual. It is capable to plan all your operational job orders automatically. This allows you to optimize your planning according to your priority rules and ensure maximum productivity on the quay, with efficient truck/rail turnaround.

Real-time Analysis

Proven algorithms, based on extensive simulation and operations research, are continuously re-calculating in real time, while using minimal resources

Quay Crane Productivity

Taking into account planning, operational constrictions and available equipment and their characteristics, TEAMS ECS optimises the job assignments to maximize the quay crane productivity.

Improved Scheduling

Smart scheduling reduces truck turnaround times, rail loading times and uses your internal transport efficiently

Automated Horizontal Transport

Automated horizontal transport affects your whole terminal, it impacts the CAPEX, OPEX, operations, equipment, IT and most important your people and how they work

Automated Straddle Carriers

A frontrunner in equipment control & scheduling for this novel automated horizontal transport in container terminal applications

Automated Guided Vehicles

Supports diesel, and fully electrical AGV operations, including Automated Battery Exchanges, Safety systems and transfer point management to automated yard, rail and quay equipment.

Manual Straddle Carriers & Mixed Environments

Supports smart features & job screens for manual horizontal transport in mixed environments with manual & automated equipment.

Automated Cranes

Automated Rail Mounted Gantry Crane (Rail & Yard)

Supports ARMG/ASC operations both in the yard and on the rail, including automated transfer point management and automated landside to truck operations.

Automated Quay Crane

Supports single & double trolley quay cranes, with twin, tandem and even quad & dual cycling loading & discharging patterns, including fully automated transfer point management to automated horizontal transport.

Automated Rubber Tired Gantry Crane

For side- and end-loaded ARTG's, with semi & fully automatic truck exchanges. Capable to take over your RTG yard planning and optimize productivity by 10%-30% versus manual CHE range planning.
