Intermodal rail freight facility iPort Rail has implemented Fargo Systems’ logistics software for the management of its terminal operations.
iPort Rail, which sits within the 337-acre iPort logistics park in Doncaster, is utilising Fargo’s CYMAN and TOPS software solutions.
Steve Collins, Director, Fargo Systems, said: “We are delighted to be working with such a cutting-edge facility. The sheer scope of the iPort offering is phenomenal from a multimodal logistics perspective. iPort needed a supplier who understands the industry and who could not only provide reliable and robust modern solutions but who could also support a new business as it develops in the industry.
“Selecting Fargo Systems gave iPort immediate access to important supply chain links and interfaces. Connecting TOPS to port system interfaces populates accurate information in TOPS relating to the import containers and provides the ability to electronically release containers. The combination of CYMAN and TOPS delivers the ideal solution for an operation like this, as their design and scalability make them suitable for all scenarios.”
Andy Wishart, Operations Manager for iPort Rail, said: “Fargo Systems is well known throughout the industry for its ability to innovate and for the vast operational knowledge of its team of consultants. As a new facility with a newly established team, we not only valued their product expertise, but also their extensive knowledge of industry practice in helping to define our processes.
“What sets Fargo apart is the fact that they become an integral part of your business and they have the ability to be both reactive to, and mindful of, your business procedures. Their systems are easy to use and highly flexible, which is why Fargo were the natural choice for us when looking for a management solution for our terminal operations.”
