Portroe Stevedores Ltd. Modernizes Port Operations in Response to Growing Demand
Tideworks Technology® Inc., a leading provider of full-service terminal management and planning software solutions, today announced the successful implementation of Tideworks’ container terminal software suite at Portroe Stevedores Limited terminal in Dublin, Ireland. The project’s success further expands and solidifies Tideworks’ presence in northern Europe. The Port of Dublin is Ireland’s premier port and handles 50 percent of all Ireland’s imports and exports.
Portroe has implemented Tideworks’ complete, integrated suite of software solutions, which includes Mainsail Terminal Management System®, Mainsail™ Online, Spinnaker Planning Management System®, Traffic Control™, and Forecast®. Tideworks’ best-of-breed gate operating system, GateVision®, will be fully deployed later this year. The suite is designed to lower overall operating costs and increase Portroe’s productivity by enhancing container visibility and improving inventory control and asset management.
“The implementation of Tideworks’ suite of container terminal products has allowed us to take a quantum leap in how we manage our resources and deliver a top-quality service to our customers. Critically, it has also allowed us to reduce operating costs. We are now hugely dependent on Tideworks’ systems and have great confidence in their round-the-clock care and applications support,” said Eamonn O’Reilly, CEO, Portroe. “We are pleased with the success of this implementation, which has helped us to increase operational efficiency and lower overall operating costs, giving us a real competitive advantage. This project has enabled us to modernize to meet the demand of increasing container volumes and ensure we are maximizing the utilization of our space.”
“Tideworks is excited and honored to have the opportunity to work with Portroe in Dublin, and expand our presence in Europe,” said Michael Schwank, president, Tideworks Technology. “We look forward to our ongoing partnerships with Portroe and working with them to help modernize their gate operations with the introduction of GateVision.”
The implementation of Tideworks’ suite of software solutions will help Portroe as it grows from its previous volume of 200,000 TEUs per year towards a planned capacity of 500,000 TEU over the coming years. Tideworks has worked closely with other technology and equipment vendors on this project, such as crane manufacturer Liebherr, to ensure complete systems integration. The implementation was executed through a combination of resources at Tideworks’ European headquarters in Spijkenisse (Rotterdam), Netherlands, and its corporate headquarters in Seattle.
