Tideworks Technology and Liebherr Container Cranes enter co-operation agreement

Terminal operating systems provider Tideworks Technology has announced a co-operation agreement with Liebherr Container Cranes (LCC), a leading manufacturer of container cranes, for solutions to the container handling industry.

This is Tideworks’ first co-operation with an equipment manufacturer and the company said it demonstrates a progression of its efforts to provide the global supply chain with next-generation TOS solutions and innovative options that include both software and hardware in a harmonized approach.

The co-operation will allow terminal operators to leverage tightly integrated TOS and lifting equipment in future offerings.

“We are excited to collaborate with Liebherr, given their depth of crane experience, in order to provide terminal operators with a streamlined solution to meet their technology and equipment needs,” said Thomas Rucker, president of Tideworks. “The ability to offer Tideworks’ TOS pre-integrated with Liebherr’s cranes and handling equipment will provide terminal operators significant cost savings and reduce time to implementation.”

In the initial phase of the co-operation, the companies will install Traffic Control, Tideworks’ equipment control system (ECS), and Tideworks Insight, its data platform, at LCC’s test facility.

“The opportunity to co-operate with Tideworks helps us augment our innovative offerings to meet our customers’ evolving needs,” said Paul Bolger, head of product management with LCC. “Terminal operators are continuing to invest in and deploy solutions that will enhance their business and lower operating costs. The ability to integrate Tideworks’ TOS software into our equipment will help optimise their efforts and add value to their operations through more efficient and intelligent cargo handling and management.”

Tideworks’ TOS solutions will be fully implemented and configured at LCC’s Killarney test environment by the end of 2019.
