Their forward thinking and our value system to make a positive difference in the business of port operations fits perfectly and we are proud of this new partnership.” said Gina Arsens, President & CEO of Klein.
“We selected Klein and KleinPort CS because it will provide BPI with the mechanism to move to a fully automated, world-class system from our old in-house written software.

After our needs analysis was completed and the return on investment calculated, the choice was a natural one.” said Everton Waters, CEO BPI.
