Terminal Management in Motion

Everything under control

A Gantt chart provides you with an interactive overview of all your activities – whether they are scheduled, ongoing or have already been completed. Intuitive, easy-to-read color codes and symbols make it simple to interpret the chart. For more details, click on the process bar to receive direct access to all data and follow-up actions.

An overview of the key details at all times

OpenTAS Navigator enables you to select processes and infrastructure prior to operation that are relevant to you and save them as customizable default settings at any time. This allows you to visualize your workflow management via Navigator profile and authorization structures. 

Every event documented

The status of scheduled activities and non-scheduled events is comprehensively recorded in OpenTAS. This information can be recorded directly in Navigator or via a mobile terminal, with Scada process information serving as an additional source of data. Based on predefined KPIs, you can take various measures as required without delay. 

Inventory management made easy

OpenTAS Tankfarm Management displays all information about your tanks, tank inventories, available tank capacities and current activities and tank statuses – in real time, at any time. This tool can handle any amount of data and is accurate to the liter. You can also sort according to products and group information based on your preferences. 

All the details in a single click

The easiest way to view all the details about book balances and partial stock, available tank capacity, tank inventories of various depositors and customs storage procedures. In addition to completed goods movements, this tool displays ongoing and scheduled activities – data that is extremely helpful to avoid operational conflict. 

The preferred tool of tank truck dispatchers

Maximum efficiency: finally, a tool enabling you to handle large numbers of vehicles quickly and safely, even at peak times. View everything at a glance: all vehicles currently being registered, idling in the parking area, waiting on the platforms, and queuing for the exit. Each vehicle is color coded according to whether they are loading or unloading – and can be further furnished with relevant information as desired.
