Computer Infrastructure

Planning, control and monitoring in real time System (SPARCS). It is the system where the logistics of the port terminal is performed in real time by using radio frequency terminals. This system covers the programming of the loading and discharging of containers to and from the ships, the organization and management of the container yard; all in a graphical environment which allows the user to get easily familiar with, it also includes the generation of the BAPLIES files (international standard for electronic data exchange with other ports).

System of electronic data exchange (EDI). It consists in the electronic data exchange EDI to electronically transmit documents between different applications in a standardized format so that information between companies can be processed without manual intervention.

Container Terminal System (CTS). Control system for the loading and discharging of containers in first and second maneuver service, interacting with the SPARCS system in real-time. This system is supported under an ORACLE database on a UNIX server, being the state-of-the-art technology used in the main terminals in the world. Among the system modules to mention: Programming cargo services, control and monitoring of refrigerated containers, container reception / dispatch and billing services generated during their stay in the terminal.
