Aden Container Terminal selects Zodiac TOS

Aden Ports Development Company (APDC) has made the switch on Zodiac Terminal Operation System (TOS) at their Aden Container Terminal in Aden, Yemen.

As one of Zodiac's first customers since 2012, APDC has chosen to stay with Zodiac software solutions in upgrading their Zodiac 5.0 to Zodiac 7.1, which is one of the most advanced and user friendly systems on the market for ports and terminal management, according to a statement.

"Zodiac advanced TOS ushers in a new era in terminal operations in Yemen as it shifts from its predecessor to high productivity rates while managing the terminal more efficiently," commented Dr. Mohammed Amzerba, chairman of the board of directors of the APDC.

The Zodiac terminal operating system is an advanced integration platform built from the feedback of those working directly in terminal operations, using technology such as real-time tracking, big data analysis, smart equipment management features, machine learning and more for smarter, faster, and better logistics, according to an announcement.

Aden Container Terminal, the largest container terminal in Yemen with a capacity of over 1 million TEU, is located near one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world and has used Zodiac software since 2012. Zodiac will be rolling out at an additional 40 terminals by 2023, adding to the 34 terminals already running its software, representing nearly 10% of global TEU throughput.

"Using current advances in technology such as real-time data collection, digitalization, Artificial Intelligence/machine learning, and big data analysis, Zodiac builds the key infrastructure necessary for port management and operations staff to optimize their resources," said Dr. Mohamed Rahmah, head of Zodiac.
