AET Antwerp Euroterminal, part of Grimaldi group and one of the largest multi-purpose and RoRo terminals in the world, successfully launched operation with a new terminal operation system (TOS) in January 2019.
Aiming at modernizing the IT infrastructure and improving their overall operations, AET bought a modern TOS and a state-of-the-art business platform for integration and EDI. With many advanced features of the new TOS now implemented, e.g. a new vessel planning system specially designed for RoRo and ConRo vessels, AET now belongs to the most modern multi-purpose terminals in the world.
Multi-purpose terminals are more complex compared to pure container terminals as they are offering and performing a wider range of variants in operation (e.g. LoLo, RoRo, trailers, cassettes, breakbulk, etc.). The successful migration of such a terminal in full swing operation requires profound experience and a well prepared implementation plan, which HPC provided in close collaboration with all parties involved.
While the TOS itself was delivered by Solvo, HPC established the project concept and was in charge of overall project management.
