Port operations

Buried by mountains of paper-based forms required for daily terminal operations? Tired of relying on cellphone photos to record shipping container damage? Wouldn’t an automated gate system with facial recognition, OCR (Optical Character Recognition) and LPR (License Plate Recognition) capabilities solve problems, increase visibility and smooth interaction with your port or terminal customers?

Tompkins Ventures can connect you with complete technology solutions for ports and terminals, including but not limited to terminal operating systems, port community systems, terminal IoT systems and automated gate systems based on advanced video analytics. The right technology will digitally connect your port’s Terminal Operating System (TOS) in real time with your trading partners – steamship lines, port and customs authorities, cargo owners and more.


Start Your Port/Terminal Digital Transformation

“Port 4.0 is transforming ports from asset operators to service providers. Labor challenges and increasing volumes have resulted in the need for increased throughput and increased productivity. The solution often begets the need for high levels of investment in port automation. Major innovations are taking place in ship-to-shore, yard operations and landside operation automation.”

Your Problem: Cost-effectively Augmenting TOS Functionality

Your key port operations and logistics rely on manual processes that create inefficiencies and delays, increase turnaround times and error rates, misplace cargo, carry compliance and security risks, lack real-time information on cargoes, vessels and berth availability and limit collaboration and communication. Automating those processes and integrating them into your port’s TOS are beyond the capabilities of the original provider.
