Saab has commissioned its first Port Management Information System in the UK. As of September 1st, 2015, Belfast Harbour Commission commenced live operations with its KleinPort system.
The Harbour is using KleinPort to manage and track its vessel operations and services, record cargo data, generate billing and execute data analysis and reporting. Belfast Harbour Commissioners selected Saab as the system supplier after an extensive public tendering process for a new port management system.
“Belfast Harbour had identified a need for a new port management information system and had a clear vision of what this should do to best support the needs of the Port and its customers. Saab demonstrated that their solution best meets all of our needs, marrying together innovation, technology, and cutting edge industry processes. With Saab’s assistance the implementation phase has gone very smoothly, has delivered what we were looking for and has gone live on schedule and on-budget”, says Trevor Anderson, Operations Director, Belfast Harbour
“KleinPort is one of the most advanced port management information systems available today and is expected to significantly increase the efficiency of the harbour”, says Anders Carp, head of Saab Traffic Management, Saab.
KleinPort is a product of Saab Technologies Ltd. (previously Klein Systems Group Ltd.), a Saab Defence and Security company and a leading provider of Maritime Enterprise Software.
Belfast Harbour is Northern Ireland’s principal maritime gateway and logistics hub, serving the Northern Ireland economy and increasingly that of the Republic of Ireland.
