Bulk & General Cargo TOS
On 19th November 2018, TBA won their 5th IBJ award in the IT Solutions category with its CommTrac Multi-Site Enterprise suite. This award is presented to a supplier of IT solutions that demonstrates its ability to deliver increased efficiency and improve management decision-making in a dry bulk cargo operation.
CommTrac Multi Terminal is a browser-based solution which can be used by anyone with access to a web browser and security access permissions. Therefore, centralisation is easy to achieve. Many logistics organisations operate worldwide multiple bulk terminals and typically each terminal has its’ own management system, working independently from other business units in the organisation. The CommTrac suite allows these global organisations to completely change their model by centralising planning and finance functions, while at the same time allowing the terminal to operate in a dynamic, real-time environment. Centralisation then gives the senior management teams a real-time reporting overview at either a local level or from a global perspective allowing them to make key strategic decisions in a timely manner.
CommTrac Multi-Site Enterprise Suite is currently being used effectively by a number of early adopters including:
