Inportant! : The Terminal Information Portal System, or TIPS, will make your working day easier.
The ﬁrst system of its kind in the United States, TIPS was developed by Sustainable Terminals Services Inc. (STS), a nonproﬁt company created by a consortium of port terminal operators. The tool compiles information from all six container terminals and makes this data available to qualiﬁed users in real-time over the Internet. Container availability, booking status, vessel schedule and empty container return location information — all this and more — are available on a single online platform. TIPS was developed in response to a Port Performance Task Force recommendation to create a port community system. Interested? Click on the link above to read more.
