Tideworks Technology®, Inc., a leading provider of full-service terminal management and planning software solutions, today announced the successful implementation of its Spinnaker Planning Management System® at San Antonio Terminal Internacional (STI) in San Antonio, Chile.



Tideworks’ Spinnaker Planning Management System provides terminal operators with fully integrated vessel, berth, yard, and rail planning tools in one workspace. Spinnaker is designed to maximize the efficiency of terminal operations by increasing cargo volume and reducing vessel turn time, resulting in greater overall productivity.



“We are excited about the implementation of the Spinnaker system,” says Alberto Borquez, general manager, STI. “It allows us to leverage a proven, off-the-shelf system to manage yard and vessel planning functions, and improve inventory visibility and control. This not only allowed us to improve vessel and yard planning operations, but also helped us redistribute our manpower to other areas of the terminal, resulting in more efficient and cost-effective operations.”



As part of the implementation project, STI system personnel developed a real-time interface between Spinnaker and STI’s custom built terminal operating system to automate the transfer of data between the two systems. With the implementation at STI, Spinnaker has now been successfully interfaced with a variety of host systems, providing terminal operators the opportunity to fully realize the benefits of this advanced, graphical planning system with minimal IT investment.



“This is a tremendous opportunity for Tideworks to collaborate with STI in Chile and, through the efficiency of our terminal management software, help to maximize the terminal’s opportunities for growth,” adds Michael Schwank, president of Tideworks Technology. “The Spinnaker system provides STI with intuitive, graphical planning functions and dramatically reduces the time previously required to complete vessel and yard planning tasks.”



The implementation at STI, Tideworks’ first in Chile, demonstrates Tideworks’ growth and continued penetration into the Latin American market and provides a showcase facility for Tideworks’ existing and potential customers in the region.
