A Gate Operating System (GOS) is software specifically developed to manage and steer complete gate processes and sub-processes, which are active in advanced terminal operations. It comprises of multiple software modules, some of them being customer specific software developments and other generic building blocks customized through configuration. It takes care of all interfaces with the installed systems and subsystems, and with the TOS, as well with possible other host systems (Customs, access control, etc.).
The GOS is the complete software tool available in the market providing terminals with the capacity to increase efficiency and productivity while limiting the operational costs.
Some of the GOS systems are also capable of managing automatic gate facilities at cargo facilities like container terminals or cargo depots. Within gate automation, truck data (e.g., license plate number, driver’s licenses, etc.) will be captured automatically, and trucks are guided through a specific process, passing pedestals and screens. It is based on the principle of making it possible to process the truck without having the drivers to get out of their vehicle, and enabling “Driver-Self-Service” facilities.« Back to Glossary Index
