Salerno Container Terminal selects Jade’s Master Terminal
Jade Software has continued to build on its strong start to 2016 with Italian port operator Salerno Container Terminal (SCT) selecting Jade’s Master Terminal to run its Italian operation. Master Terminal, Jade’s flagship Terminal Operating System (TOS), will replace SCT’s legacy system which is gradually being phased out of the market.
The win enhances Jade’s growing reputation as the leader in the mixed cargo terminal market and further extends its footprint in Europe.
Based in southern Italy, and covering an area of 120,000 sq. meters, SCT has been developed as a major private container terminal to cope with the increasing shipping demands in the area. Handling approximately 400,000 TEUs per annum, and with increasing volumes of roll-on-roll-off cargo, SCT serves the area from Rome to Bari, Naples and Salerno, via direct links with the Italian highway and railway networks.
Jade CEO, David Lindsay, says: “Jade has a strong connection with the Italian market and we are thrilled about building this new relationship with SCT. Between our Rotterdam office, newly opened development center in Geneva, and our New Zealand based team, we are fully committed to supporting SCT throughout this project and beyond, as well as supporting further growth in Europe.”
SCT required a system that would provide a seamless transition from its legacy TOS, while at the same delivering a solution that was flexible enough to adapt to SCT’s future growth aspirations.
Massimiliano Riccardi, Commercial Director at SCT said: “After a comprehensive evaluation process Master Terminal was the only system that offered all the functionality and flexibility required to not only replace our legacy system, but also support the future needs of our business.
“Jade’s experience in the container and project cargo market, combined with their impressive implementation capability, gave us the confidence we needed to ensure a successful transition project and a sound platform for growth.” said Mr Riccardi.
Kaustubh Dalvi, Jade’s President of Global Sales said it was exciting to work with SCT who had a good vision of what they needed from their new TOS, both now and into the future.
“Our sound technical solution, best in industry implementation approach, and record of delivering product changes to meet each customer’s needs, means we are well placed to help SCT make the transition to Master Terminal as seamless as possible.
“We have developed some smart migration tools which will allow for out of the box data migration, causing minimal disruption to clients’ business and positioning them well for future success,” said Mr Dalvi.
This is the sixth new business win for Jade Master Terminal this calendar year. Implementation at Salerno will commence in 2016 and is expected to take less than six months.
