MGI and TGI strengthens their collaboration to interface Ci5 PCS and OSCAR TOS in Dunkirk, Longoni and Fort-de-France.
MGI, Port Community Systems (PCS) expert and TGI Maritime Software, leader in the French-speaking Terminal Operating System (TOS) market, are working together to ensure AP + migration to Ci5 for the following maritime terminals: Terminal Des Flandres (Dunkirk), SMART (Mayotte) and DATA Terminal (Martinique). Ci5 is an intelligent PCS dedicated to the management of the flow of goods which delivers fluidity, traceability, security and competitiveness for all terminals in order to create an ever-more efficient supply-chain.
A strengthened MGI / TGI partnership
Ensuring traceability for imports or exports of goods is the objective jointly pursued by TOS (Terminal Operating System) and PCS (Port Community System). This is how Ci5 and OSCAR exchange thousands of messages every day.
MGI and TGI Maritime Software worked together in project mode. As a provider and integrator of “OSCAR” TOS, TGI’s goal was to provide the necessary developments in the TOS so that interfaces works optimally with Ci5. A dedicated team, developers, testers and trainers joined together from both sides to ensure goods traceability. Terminal Des Flandres (Dunkirk), Data Terminal (Fort de France) and SMART (Mayotte) particularities were taken into account to offer a solution tailored to customers’ specific requirements.
The first deployments of this solution in Ci5 and OSCAR was on December 1st, 2019 in Mayotte and early October in Dunkirk. The next one is scheduled for March 31 in Fort de France
Greater fluidity, traceability and competitiveness
Ci5’s interface is intuitive, ergonomic and focused on user needs. Its design is based on the latest cutting-edge technologies: Block Chain, Artificial Intelligence, Mobility, etc… Ci5 guarantees operational productivity gains by offering, in particular, a personalized display, intuitive entries and simplified data searches. Thanks to real-time information, supply chain players can anticipate and plan all land and maritime operations before ship’s arrival or departure (or any other transport mode). For example, with the Ci5 mobile application, the passage of carriers at the gate is recorded, container and seal numbers quickly filled in by truck drivers. Thus, information data transmission is significantly reduced and movement of goods accelerated. All this contributes to rich, reliable, secure and real time information, shared with the entire supply chain.
TGI and MGI innovate constantly
MGI and TGI Maritime Software share the same vision: rely on new services like artificial intelligence or connected objects to facilitate and accelerate the exchange of information in the international supply chain. For more than thirty years, MGI’s competence is recognized by its customer, particularly since the introduction of the Port Community Sytems (PCS) PROTIS, then AP + and now Ci5.
Rémi Julien, MGI CEO says: “Strong integration with IT terminal systems is a must for port efficiency. I am delighted that the cooperation between MGI and TGI launched 10 years ago is still going strong with our new generations of products in order to guarantee greater operations performance, safety and fluidity.”
On the side of TGI and for over 25 years, they are leader on the French speaking Terminal Operating System market. Also committed to digitalisation and connected objects, TGI offers innovative solutions for maritime terminals such as TGIBOX, which allows Container Handling Equipment and containers geo-tracking to guarantee an up-to-date and in real time yard inventory.
Marc Boyer Chammard, TGI CEO says : “We have worked very closely with MGI teams and are proud of what we’ve achieved. With our two interoperable products, our customers benefit from all the advantages provided by this new community platform, including visibility, traceability, and anticipation of events.”
