TOPS KPI is a new addition to the TOPS Expert and TOPS Expert Cloud package to help manage and control terminal operations. TOPS KPI is a remote management and data analysis/mining tool that allows the terminal management at any time to analyze the current performance of their terminal and to also view its past performance. The terminal’s performance can be monitored from any location and any browser with access to the terminal’s network via the Internet or Intranet. The dashboard figures are constantly updated directly from the operational system.

TOPS KPI Main Screen

n the main screen, it displays the Total Terminal View of the TOPS KPI Dashboard, which shows the key figures of the core business areas of the terminal, covering all assets of waterside and landside operations. The tool displays the most relevant data of vessel operation, for example, ETA, ETD, discharge/load moves, CHE performance figures, and many more.  A comprehensive insight into the yard is provided with the tool as it shows KPI figures of yard activities per hour or block, as well as the overall yard utilization, the split of import, export, and transshipment containers. Gate activities and truck turnaround times are essential for terminals and are displayed too.
