Jade Kicks Off 2013 with Five-Port Sale


Jade Kicks Off 2013 with Five-Port Sale

Christchurch, 4 February 2013 – Jade Software today announces a significant ports new business win in mainland United States for its terminal operating system Master Terminal.

Diversified Port Holdings (DPH) an integrated ports logistics business will be implementing Master Terminal at five of its shipping terminals in the south-eastern United States (two in Jacksonville, and one in each of the following locations: Mobile, New Orleans and Port Everglades).

Jade Software Managing Director David Lindsay says the DPH contract is a significant opportunity for the company.

“It’s sizable in dollar terms and will also allow Jade to expand its footprint in the US and build on existing customer relationships in the market.

“Master Terminal stood out because it is uniquely suited to DPH’s mixed cargo ports, and offers a flexible and highly reliable system to manage operations.

“DPH is also focussed on improving efficiency and competing aggressively for market share, something that Master Terminal will equip them to do,” says Lindsay.

DPH’s decision process included a visit to New Zealand in July by five company representatives to review Master Terminal sites at Port Nelson, Port Otago and CentrePort.

DPH CIO Dennis Rhodes says: "After an extensive review of the Terminal Operating Systems available, Master Terminal was the only system that met the needs of our mixed cargo terminals. We were impressed by the functionality and use of Master Terminal and the capability of the Jade team.

"We expect, once implemented, that Master Terminal will result in improved efficiency across our terminals and lead to significant savings for the company,” says Rhodes.

Implementation at DPH ports will start in the first quarter of 2013.


Master Terminal is also enjoying considerable success in the Middle East, supporting the company’s aim to be the fastest growing terminal operating system provider in that region.
