Terminal Operating System (TOS)

A Terminal Operating System (TOS) is a vital part of a terminal and primarily aims to control the movement and storage of various types of cargo in and around a container, terminal port, or inland depot.

A TOS also enables a terminal to make better use of its assets, labor, and equipment, plan workload, and get up-to-the-minute information, which allows for more timely and cost-effective decision-making.

The objective of a TOS is to provide a set of computerized procedures to manage cargo, machines, and people within the facility to enable seamless, efficient, and effective management of the facility.
