Container Terminal Management System (CTMS)
CTMS is state-of-the-art application software for operating a modern container terminal serving
international shipping lines. It makes use of Internet technology for easy access by clients of the
terminal and exchange of data files through EDI messaging. It adopts a multi-tier hardware configuration
for easy expansion of the system as handling volume increases in the future. The system is designed
using Object Oriented Methodology and is entirely coded in Java programming language to ensure
easy maintenance and future enhancements.

Remote Crane Management System (RCMS)
The Crane Management System (CMS) monitors physical and operating conditions of the crane on a
real-time basis. The parameters are logged, so that trends can be established, and the performance
of equipment and crane operator can be analyzed.

One possible inconvenience with CMS is that it is a       Key Features of RCMS

cranes at one go is to have a central location whereby

commonly termed “Remote CMS” or RCMS. The

Optical Character Recognition (OCR) System
Optical Character Recognition system is a container terminal gate processing system, ideally suited
for capturing, recognising and recording of container numbers together with the truck license plate.
The system typically comprises a Triggering System, Capturing System, Recognition Software and
Database for storage of images. The OCR System is normally integrated to the CTMS for verification
and update of container number coming into and out of the terminal.
