CSA will install its Autostore TOS at Sapangar Bay Container Port in Malaysia.



UK-based CSA (Central Systems & Automation Ltd - a subsidiary of Terex Port Solutions) is to implement Autostore TOS for Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd at the Sapangar Bay Container Port (SBCP), in co-operation with Malaysian port service specialist IT Portlink Sdn Bhd.



SBCP is the largest container port in Sabah, with an annual capacity of 500,000 TEU. 


To be installed as part of a IT infrastructure upgrade, the new TOS spans the Autostore Container Terminal Management System (CTMS) “plus a range of additional modules to increase cargo throughput and enhance operational efficiency at the facility”, CSA said in a statement.



“Phase one of the implementation comprises Autostore TOS plus the following functionality modules; Activity Charging (interfacing to SBCP’s billing systems); Berth Planning; Graphic Vessel Planning; Vehicle Booking; EDI; and Value Added Services for on-site container maintenance and repair. Autostore TOS will interface directly to SBCP’s ERP (enterprise resource planning) system to give Sabah Ports integrated, end-to-end and real-time control of all cargo, equipment and resource deployments. Access control options for phase two include optical character recognition (OCR), licence plate recognition (LPR) and radio frequency identification (RFID)” CSA stated.



Mohd Sahid Nawab Khan, COO at Sabah Ports Sdn Bhd, said: “An advanced, capable and reliable TOS plays a vital part in supporting and enhancing the port operations. Sabah Ports looks forward to working with its new technology partners CSA and IT Portlink”. 



Andrew McKaig, CEO at CSA, said: “With a growing customer base in the dynamic Far East container management market, we’re delighted to be working with IT Portlink and Sabah Ports. This important new contract win will continue to maintain the momentum that has made Autostore TOS the solution of choice for many container terminals around the world”.



Yeo Peng Leng, Managing Director at IT Portlink, said: “Autostore TOS is proven worldwide and it has the present capability and future-proofed functionality to deliver significant operational and business benefits for Sabah Ports. As part of the Terex Materials Handling & Port Solutions business, CSA brings an exceptional level of software expertise to the project that perfectly matches IT Portlink’s skills in container terminal infrastructure management”.
