The New Zealand-based terminal operating software developer Jade Software has won a deal to provide a terminal operating system for five mixed cargo facilities in the U.S. Southeast.
The terminals, operated by Diversified Port Holdings, include two in Jacksonville, Fla., and one each in Mobile, Ala.; New Orleans; and Port Everglades, Fla. Jade's Master Terminal suite will be used at the terminals.
“(The contract) is sizable in dollar terms and will also allow Jade to expand its footprint in the U.S. and build on existing customer relationships in the market,” said Jade Software Managing Director David Lindsay.
Implementation at DPH ports will start in the first quarter of 2013. - Eric Johnson
