July 29 - Abu Dhabi Ports has implemented Jade Software's terminal operating system, Master Terminal, at Zayed Port.

Zayed Port is the first of seven ports in the region scheduled to upgrade its system to Jade's Master Terminal. The new terminal operating system will be implemented at Khalifa Port's general cargo and ro-ro terminals from August 1, and subsequently across the remainder of Abu Dhabi Ports.

"Zayed Port is the first port that will benefit from the improvements that our terminal operating system will bring," said Jade Software managing director David Lindsay. "Jade's Master Terminal will enable real-time management and control of all aspects of general cargo operations, including bulk, breakbulk, ro-ro and project cargo, and enhance supply chain visibility." 

Jade's Master Terminal will provide more accurate cargo information before vessel arrival in order for Abu Dhabi Ports to plan operations well in advance. The software also contributes to the reduction in time required for delivery and queues at the terminal; and allows terminal operators to accurately track and trace cargo in the yard.
