Ceres has implemented an aggressive plan for the purchase of emerging technology, software development, redefining IT processes and upgrading systems. A substantial investment has been made in time, staff and resources so that the dissemination of critical information can always be given to our customers in a timely and accurate manner.
Ceres has established a centralized service center in Nashville, Tennessee. This facility, the main hub for all Information Services activities, delivers information and applications to users at all Ceres locations. Utilizing these capabilities, users are able to track containers or cargo, pass information between Ceres locations or customers, and obtain general information on terminal operations.
Ceres TOS System
At the Ceres container terminal operating locations, our customers have the advantage of utilizing Ceres' proprietary Terminal Operating System (TOS) which allows customers into the application through the web interface. In addition to this ability, the application has a specific customer web interface designed around your special needs. This interface provides functionality such as yard inventory views, real time vessel load/discharge operations, dynamic report writing and cargo tracking along with visibility to vessels and vessel schedules. Customers can also review and submit shipping instructions. Ceres currently upgrades these systems on a continual basis to ensure that our customers receive the highest levels of productivity and turnaround.
Ceres RORO Information System
At the Ceres Auto/RoRo terminal operating locations, we provide an added benefit for our RoRo customers with our proprietary RoRo Information System. This is an innovative means of keeping track of and streamlining auto terminal operations. The Ceres RoRo Information System is a precise method of tracking every move of your auto logistics. You can access the system directly through the RoRo Portal link provided on the website and obtain the latest updates on your cargo.
Ceres also utilizes image acquisition portals, weigh-in-motion scales, closed-circuit television for security and gate control, container/yard equipment positioning through Global Positioning Systems (GPS), provide real-time information on equipment condition, inventory and container movement and advanced crane control systems. In all our operating locations we are in compliance with applicable safety and security measures and regulations and work closely with governing authorities to ensure a safe, secure working environment.
