Hi ,

In this edition of Masthead, Tony Davis talks about Jade's plans to expand into the Australian market, we explain how Master Terminal helps ports meet the new SOLAS VGM rules, take a trip round the virtual Jade Port, and congratulate Abu Dhabi Ports on their 10th anniversary.


Jade's Master Terminal helps mixed-cargo ports compete with world's best


Tony Davis, Director of Marketing at Jade Logistics recently spoke to the Australian Logistics Council about how software can drive efficiency gains and increase a port’s revenue potential. He believes that Jade’s terminal operating system, Master Terminal™, is ideally suited to Australian ports, given their mixed cargo focus, and discusses the company's plans to expand into the Australian market.

Jade's Port

We recently exhibited and presented at TOC Asia in Singapore. Visitors were able to take a  trip around the Jade Port using our virtual reality app. If you would like your own VR experience, email us and we will send you a set of Google glasses. 


Container weighing  


With the clock counting down to 1 July when the new SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) Verified Gross Mass (VGM) rule takes effect, there is still a lot of confusion and many questions being asked about what it will mean to the industry. There have been some suggestions in the media lately that shippers, terminal operators, and container lines will get some leeway in the first three months while things are sorted out. However, this should not be taken as a license to do nothing. The rule is here to stay and those who do nothing risk penalties.  

You can read more about Jade's approach to VGM in our Container Weighing fact sheet. 

Contact us if you need more information on how Master Terminal can help you meet the new guidelines.

We go on site 

Delphine Ducaruge, Product Manager - Logistics, has just returned from visiting some of our customers in the USA and Mexico where she was able to get alongside the users of Master Terminal. The purpose of her visit was to present the new roadmap as well as to do some research around Business Intelligence and the use of mobile technology on the ports.


Jade congratulate Abu Dhabi Ports on 10th Anniversary


Congratulations to Abu Dhabi Ports on their 10th Anniversary.  Master Terminal (TOS) was selected by Abu Dhabi Ports in 2014 to manage operations at seven terminals as the company embarked on an ambitious program to optimize productivity across their ports.
