Belfast Harbour has just started using Saab’s Kleinport port management information system (PMIS). This is Saab’s first port management system in a UK port. Belfast has been using the system since the 1st of September.
The PMIS tracks vessel operations, records cargo data, generates billing and runs data analysis and reporting. According to Belfast Harbour operations director Trevor Anderson, “Saab demonstrated that their solution best meets all of our needs, marrying together innovation, technology, and cutting edge industry processes.” The Harbour Commissioners had a clear idea of what they sought in a new PMIS and Saab’s system was best suited to their needs.
Belfast’s harbour is the main port of entry to Northern Ireland and as its business grows, is increasingly serving the Irish Republic as well.
