Primary Benefits

The TOPS suite of applications handles every aspect of container terminal operations. From planning to operations and on to optimization, TOPS automates terminal operations to improve productivity, to raise throughput and to improve customer service. Specific benefits are as follows:

Throughput & Productivity

TOPS improves the efficiency of any terminal’s operation, leading to higher productivity due to an increased number of container moves, resulting in a more efficient and profitable operation.


TOPS enables any terminals to do more with less by incorporating various “true automation” features – e.g. the built-in optimization engine has access to all terminal/container information, enabling automated optimization of container moves.


TOPS is the most stable and most reliable system, which is an important requirement for a mission critical system at any terminal. TOPS performs with responsiveness, regardless of workload or system demand.

Improving Customer Service

TOPS allows a quick and efficient record and management of all aspects of container movements throughout the terminal, increasing productivity and enhancing the delivery of services to your customers.

Increasing Revenues

TOPS enables more efficient use of all terminal assets, ensuring more throughput and higher productivities – e.g. the automatic linking of yard activity and vessel container movements to the billing system ensures a much faster billing process, improving the terminal’s cash flow.


A powerful feature of TOPS is that it can be configured to operate multiple terminal locations. TOPS scalability allows to run small terminals and also those with expanding operations. Its connectivity allows it to be connected with any peripheral devices required by the terminal.
