Press release

The award was won as part of a joint submission with Peel Ports Liverpool for the CommTrac system operating at Peel Ports Agri-Bulk terminals in Liverpool. 
Having first worked with Peel Ports Liverpool in 2001 when we jointly developed the Management, Operations and Traceability System for the Grain Terminal we then went on to develop their CommTrac Bulk Terminal Management System, which has subsequently become the product of choice for bulk terminals around the world.
In 2012 we delivered a major upgrade of the automation and management systems at the Agri-Bulk terminals at the Port of Liverpool and have, this year, implemented CommTrac at Peel's Runcorn docks operation.

The award was collected on the night by DBIS director David Trueman (centre left) and Peel Ports,Liverpool,Port Director David Huck (centre right)
David Huck said “CommTrac delivers a tangible return on investment for Peel Ports Liverpool through administrative efficiencies, optimisation of operational processes and, more importantly, delivering further added value for our growing customer base. The traceability and QA requirements at Liverpool are intrinsic within CommTrac, enabling the terminals to further advance their compliance with global traceability and product security standards.

The award , which is our 3rd IBJ award, further cements our position as the leading global supplier of integrated systems to bulk and general cargo terminals.
