The state-of-the-art rail terminal that sits within the 337-acre iPort logistics park is using Fargo’s successful CYMAN, Fargo’s comprehensive container and yard management software solution and TOPS (Transport Order Planning System) for all its terminal operations.
Andy Wishart, Operations Manager for iPort Rail comments: “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.”
CYMAN provides iPort Rail with a real-time EDI interface from TOPS, providing complete visibility of the supply chain and making it possible to plan both road and rail arrivals and departures. All back-office functions are also managed by CYMAN, which has integration to their accounts system, maximising terminal operational efficiency.
Commenting on the iPort Rail contract win Steve Collins, Director, Fargo Systems said: “We are delighted to be working with such a cutting-edge facility. 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.
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.”
Formed in 2002, Fargo Systems is the UK’s leading provider of logistics software to the container haulage industry. Recognised for its easy to use and flexible software solutions, iPort Rail has taken Fargo’s 2018 client wins into impressive double figures.
