The Marine Terminal Information System (MTIS) aims to ensure that all marine terminals worldwide reach common high standards of safety and environmental protection.
OCIMF’s Marine Terminal Information System Programme (MTIS) is a comprehensive terminal management tool, an operator training programme and a terminal/berth particulars database that supports safe terminal operations. Its objective is to compile a comprehensive database of relevant information for all of the world’s 4,000+ terminals – from the hardware available to berth measurements and transfer rates. The MTIS database provides terminal and vessel operators, along with charters and associated services, with a single, central storage of terminal specifics in a consistent format.
The Programme works by providing terminal operators with a management self assessment tool to measure and improve performance, an operator competency and training programme and a database in which to enter and share dimensional information to facilitate safe berth requirements. With terminal information collected and shared in a common format using consistent units of measurement, schedulers and operators can better assess the compatibility of ships and terminals and ensure safe operation and environmental protection.
