Works are ongoing on replacing the existing system at Dinges Logistics' Grünstadt inland container terminal to have the new terminal operating system (TOS) online in Q4 2021.
"When we set out to replace our existing system, we wanted to select a proven software vendor in the intermodal TOS market who will allow us to not only improve our transparency, but also our efficiency," Ingo Dinges, Owner, Dinges Logistics, commented.
Timo Mayer, the company's Site Manager and Project Leader, added, "When we engaged with INFORM throughout the selection process, we always had a clear vision that they were looking at the long-term impact of their solution on our terminal and they were understanding our needs very well; it was clear that it would be a partnership with INFORM, that we weren’t simply buying a piece of software."
"Our Intermodal TOS was developed over many years, leveraging our knowledge of the container and intermodal industries combined with our optimization expertise," Dr. Eva Savelsberg, SVP of INFORM's Logistics division, said.
She furthered, "The TOS benefits from many of the add-on algorithms that the container terminal is probably used to hearing in conjunction with the name INFORM, which truly makes it one of the most powerful intermodal TOS options on the market."
Dr. Savelsberg also highlighted, "Dinges Logistics' Grünstadt Terminal is our smallest Intermodal TOS deployment to date and it reflects the work that the team has done to make the solution scalable and nimble allowing any sized terminal to benefit from digitalization and optimization."
