Belfast Harbour awards tender for port management system
Wed, 17 December 2014
Canada’s Klein Systems Group has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Belfast Harbour, Northern Ireland, to install the KleinPort Port Management Information System. Belfast Harbour Commissioners selected Klein as the system supplier after an extensive public tendering process for a new port management system.
The Harbour will use KleinPort to manage and track its vessel operations and services, record cargo data, generate billing and execute data analysis and reporting.
Trevor Anderson, Operations Director, Belfast Harbour, said: “Belfast Harbour had identified a need for a new Port Management Information System and had a clear vision of what this should do to best support the needs of the Port and its customers. Klein Systems demonstrated that their solution best meets all of our needs, marrying together innovation, technology, and cutting edge industry processes.”
Belfast Harbour is Northern Ireland's principal maritime gateway and logistics hub, serving the Northern Ireland economy and increasingly that of the Republic of Ireland.
