Dutch logistics service provider Verbrugge International BV will add Konecranes software to three of its locations in the Netherlands. 

The Konecranes terminal operating systems (TOS) for non-containerised and containerised cargo operations will be integrated over the course of 2024 and 2025.

The TOS will simplify Verbrugge’s port and inland terminal operations covering dry bulk, general cargo, Roll-on/roll-off (RoRo), project cargo and container handling.

“We are facing the challenges of automating our terminals, which have different and complex systems running to manage all operations,” says Verbrugge International BV chief financial officer Carlo Broeren.

“We’re a logistics service provider and not a software company, although we always tried to deliver the best service to our clients, but time progresses. So instead of relying on building an in-house system we investigated the market for a best-in-class software solution and chose the software solution from Konecranes.”

The companies have also agreed to integrate Konecranes' software solutions with Verbrugge's finance systems and real-time data sources like weighbridges, which help to accurately measure the flows of bulk cargo in and out of the terminal. 

This first-of-its-kind integration is expected to introduce operational efficiencies across Verbrugge's entire cargo. 

“We’re pleased to have Verbrugge as our first CommTrac customer in mainland Europe following our recent successes in the US, Canada and Australia,” says David Trueman, managing director for Konecranes’ TBA Doncaster software unit in port solutions.
