LCB1 Group is equipped with a state-of-the-art Radio Data Terminal system (RDT). This provides operators with timely, accurate information regarding container movements. The control center continuously monitors information on the status of any container in the yard, as well as the progress of vessel operations. The RDT system greatly enhances real-time date transmission between the control center and on-site operators.
The terminal operating system keeps track of all services performed on each container which is handled on the terminal. CTCS manages bookings, releases, work orders and standing orders, gate operations, container tracking, handling of exceptions, management reporting and communication.
In accordance with contracts and tariffs agreed between the terminal and our customer, COREBIS automatically creates invoices based on the container handling data coming from CTCS. With this EDI Monitor the terminal can automatically exchange data with its customers.
