DP World reports that its CARGOES TOS+ cloud-based Terminal Operating System (TOS), part of its in-house Zodiac software platform, has completed its ‘go-live’ at the Commercial Port of Luanda, Angola.
CARGOES TOS+ is an integrated platform for terminal IT and operational systems, providing users with real-time information on vessel, gate, and yard movements. The software project began following the signing of a 20-year concession agreement between the Angolan government and DP World in January 2021.
The cloud-based system was deployed in just two months, forming part of a wider range of investments from DP World into upgrades at the Port of Luanda and other locations in Africa.
“Our mission is to find solutions to solve challenges for our customers and partners. And we are focused on making a positive economic and societal impact through the delivery of our technology and digital solutions,” said COO for Logistics and Technology at DP World, Mike Bhaskaran.
“Luanda is a great example of how DP World is enabling smarter trade for emerging economies to compete on a global stage.”
The application in use at DP World Luanda has now been implemented at 87 sites globally, including DP World Limassol, Cyprus, where the Zodiac cloud-Based TOS is used for General Cargo, the company says.
