Dinges Logistics optimizes container terminal with TOS by INFORM

03/03/2021 - Dinges Logistics has selected INFORM’s Intermodal TOS in January to replace their existing system at their Grünstadt container terminal.

"Whenselecting a new TOS, we wanted to rely on an experienced and proven provider that would reliably support us in making our daily work more transparent and efficient," explains company owner Ingo Dinges. In January, the logistics company from near Mannheim awarded the project to INFORM. The configuration of the new TOS is currently being implemented and should be fully completed in the 4th quarter of 2021.

Ingo Dinges wants to network and harmonize the numerous areas of his entire service offering with the new software in order to create more transparency and shorten service times at the same time. "Investing in a modern digitalization solution is a key element for us in achieving this goal," he explains.

INFORM's solution was quickly convincing: "During the selection process, we were able to experience the system in live operation at another terminal. The results and discussions with the specialists there showed us that this TOS is the frontrunner among all systems," says Dinges. The modular software can be adapted to any inland terminal. It optimizes the handling of loading units and the use of the required equipment in real time. In this way, it makes optimum use of the full potential of existing resources and reduces the need for cost-intensive investments in new infrastructure.

From its headquarters in Aachen, INFORM serves maritime ports and inland terminals worldwide with add-on optimization systems and TOS solutions. "Our software for the container and inland terminal industry is a combination of decades of industry experience and 50 years of optimization expertise. This is how we have become one of the leading providers on the market," comments Dr. Eva Savelsberg, Head of Logistics at INFORM.

For Timo Mayer, Site and Project Manager at Dinges Logistics, the fact that the INFORM solution is already being used by German inland terminal operators, including KTL and Samskip, strengthens the trust in the partnership: "We had the feeling that the project managers understood our needs very well and always had the long-term impact of the solution on our terminal in mind. It was a partnership right from the start and not just the purchase of software."

For Dr. Savelsberg, the project with Dinges Logistics proves the good scalability of the software: "The Grünstadt terminal from Dinges Logistics is our smallest intermodal TOS implementation to date. Our software is very flexible and therefore able to support terminals of all sizes in the areas of digitalization and intelligent optimization."
