Master Terminal Wins Major Mexico Ports Contract

Jade Software’s Master Terminal Arrives in Central America with New Customer Win

Productivity gains and rapid implementation attract Grupo CICE

Jade Software today announced that in a first for the company in Mexico and Central America, Grupo CICE has selected Jade’s terminal operating system (TOS), Master Terminal, to more easily manage its mixed cargo ports. Two ports, at Veracruz and Tampico, will implement Master Terminal this year.

Grupo CICE’s full complement of port operations includes storage for all cargo types, as well as packaging and distribution. Growing and ambitious port operators like CICE are recognising the benefits of a single, solid TOS, making Master Terminal one of the world’s fastest-growing mixed cargo terminal operating systems.

As CICE looks to attract more international shipping companies, Master Terminal will help successfully run and grow their operation, according to a CICE spokesperson. “We have to compete with top international groups, and operate in our own terminal as well as in public areas. To provide top quality services for containers and general cargo we need the right tools to plan, control, and operate our business. Jade’s Master Terminal Software gives us the flexibility and reliability we require from a TOS.”

CICE will retire a number of in-house systems and replace them with Master Terminal’s single, integrated view of the port. With Jade’s rapid implementation process, including a six-week record set earlier this year, the ports will quickly see benefits and gain value from Master Terminal.

Another appeal was Jade’s global track record. Master Terminal is well established in the Middle East and New Zealand, and has a growing presence in the USA. The first African sites, Ghana’s Tema and Takoradi ports, were announced last October.

Captain Kaustubh Dalvi, Director of Sales for Master Terminal, celebrated the system’s arrival in Central America. "This is a significant milestone for Master Terminal; it is our first implementation in Mexico, further extending our footprint in the Americas. Master Terminal is a compelling option for ambitious ports anywhere in the world, and our new relationship with CICE is further proof of that.”

The ground-breaking Mexican implementation will begin later this year.
