EMO: Market leader EMO shares the secret to its terminal success

 Ports & Terminals
Vessels Scheduling Vessels Capacity Optimization Operational Planning & Scheduling

EMO is the largest dry bulk terminal in Europe, specializing in the unloading and storage of iron ore and coal. These products arrive from all over the world. Offering direct access to the North Sea at a draft of 23m, EMO handles vessels from panamax up to the largest dry bulk carriers presently trading. Operating 24 hours a day, 360 days a year, and unloading about 35 million tons annually, EMO is a vital part of the supply chain of iron ore and coal for the European steel and electricity industries.

EMO chose Quintiq to support its planning department. Quintiq demonstrated the flexibility to easily model EMO's business processes, which feature a multitude of resources. Today Quintiq enables the users to schedule vessels to be discharged or loaded, depending on their draft, load and all other important criteria.
"For years we were searching for technology which could optimize our planning and scheduling process. During a demo Quintiq proved instantly they were able to model the most complex part of our processes and generate better schedules. Particularly the possibility to replan in minutes is extremely valuable in our business".
Bert Pothoven,
ICT Manager EMO
