The Challenge

Bollore Africa Logistics is one of the leading privately owned terminal operators in Africa. Bollore has interests in eleven container terminals along the West African coast, one container terminal in North Africa and one in India. In the near future Bollore will further extend its geographical scope outside Africa, e.g. South America. Against the background of worldwide expansion and productivity improvements Bollore intended to review its IT strategy. Starting point of this review by HPC Hamburg Port Consulting GmbH was an evaluation of the existing in-house terminal operating systems (TOS) and an evaluation of different terminal operating systems on the market. Currently, nine container terminals are using the in-house terminal operating system.

Tasks Performed

  • Elaboration of recommendations for an IT strategy for the next 15 to 20 years
  • Elaboration of specification of TOS requirements according to the IT strategy and the expansion plans of Bollore Africa Logistics
  • Execution of a request for information (RFI) procedure with ten TOS suppliers from the market, including evaluation of the proposals of 8 suppliers
  • Audit and evaluation of the existing in-house TOS in Dunkerque, France, and on a reference terminal in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire
  • Reporting to the steering committee
  • Estimation of the re-development efforts for the existing in-house TOS

Benefit to Client

  • Independent evaluation with HPC’s expertise from over 40 years experience
  • Full traceability through tool-based evaluation methodology based on functionality, technology, integration, organisation and commercial demands
  • Decision support for a cost-efficient, sustainable and future-proof IT landscape
