Tideworks on the rails at TraPac

Tideworks Technology has supplied software for the rail operation at TraPac’s automated container terminal in Los Angeles.

Tideworks has announced that the on-dock rail system at TraPac Los Angeles terminal went live with its Spinnaker Planning Management application earlier this year. The order is an important reference for Tideworks, demonstrating its ability to integrate its software in a wider automation environment. TraPac uses Kalmar’s Terminal Logistics System and its own in-house TOS. 

The rail yard is equipped with three double cantilever RMGs from Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (MES) subsidiary Paceco. One of the cantilevers operates over a buffer area between the main container yard, and is fed by automated straddle carriers from Kalmar. The cranes operate using a mix of full automation and remote control. 

While other Tideworks customers are using its dedicated rail TOS (IPro) at their rail facilities, TraPac is using Tidework’s Spinnaker planning application. “Spinnaker integrated with TraPac’s existing systems to deliver the functionality needed to support automated rail operations for both eastbound and westbound trains at the terminal. The system enables TraPac to leverage key Spinnaker features such as graphical planning, pre-arrival consist visibility, rail schedule, drag and drop ramp assignment, container and railcar history, track layout, railcar and container query, list, sort and recap reporting, saved searches, graphical cone management, and customizable auto-plan rule validations and user access controls,” Tideworks explained. 

“We were thrilled to partner with TraPac on this project and look forward to growing our relationship with their team in the future,” said Todd Tatterson, vice president business development, Tideworks Technology. “We believe that Tideworks’ full suite of terminal operating system solutions can provide long-term value at TraPac’s Los Angeles container facility. For Tideworks, this project represents a major automation project in the LA/LGB port complex, which is a significant milestone for our company.” 

Tideworks' scope of supply included implementation services, project management, software configuration and installation, integration services, user training and go-live assistance, plus ongoing maintenance and support.
