OSCAR TOS for San Pedro

Bolloré Transport & Logistics San Pedro live with the OSCAR TOS.

The Port of San Pedro is a multipurpose terminal specialising in handling cocoa beans, timber, and transhipment containers. The terminal operates four mobile harbour cranes, reachstackers and terminal tractors and handles around 50,000 TEU year, including refrigerated cargo.


San Pedro has been growing strongly and is now the second largest port in Cote d’Ivoire. In 2011 it handled 1.8Mt of cargo, a figure which increased to 4Mt by 2015, including 3.2Mt of transhipped goods.


Bolloré Transport & Logistics (BTL) San Pedro implemented the OSCAR TOS to increase efficiency and productivity, achieve better data sharing and collaboration, monitor operations in real time and implement a secure billing process. TGI Maritime Software personnel worked closely with BTL to deliver a solution configured to BTL San Pedro’s needs.


“Thanks to its maritime expertise, TGI played an advisory role on improving the terminal processes,” TGI stated. This included having TGI personnel on site over a two week period to train super users, who were then able to train other personnel.


“During training and operations,TGI teams added significant value to ensure that we are getting the maximum benefits from the solution,” said Frank Appia at BTL. “We can take advantage of real time processing. Also OSCAR is a flexible Terminal Operating System. We have increased operational visibility and customer support is always available.”


“Implementation is the key to success and our proven and robust methodology, partnership approach and thorough training deliver quick and efficient results to optimise container terminal operations,” said Pascal Fasquelle, project manager at TGI Maritime Software.


This article was amended on 26 April to reflect that TGI implemented OSCAR for Bolloré Transport & Logistics at the Port of San Pedro, and not Terminal de San Pedro as earlier reported.
