Albilad Arabia

Our information technology system is futuristic and offers a highly ultra-modern digital platform that acts as a single window provider facilitating information flow to all our stakeholders, traders and port authorities.

Baas Port Services is the first port in KSA and 5th in the world to implement NAVIS N4 2.+ SAP + PsilogTechlogix Wi-Fi as the terminal operating system. The technological advancement enables all the shipping lines and agents in the world to track their containers online, remotely.

NAVIS N4 2.3

BPS has access to Saudi Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), and can access information related to the container movement before the vessel arrives at King Abdul Aziz Sea Port, Dammam or the Riyadh Dry Port. The information collected from the EDI can be uploaded in any standard formats in the NAVIS N4 system, without any manual intervention and can be used for report generation, notifying all agents and shipping lines. N4 currently supports the internationally recognized formats of reports like CODECO, COARRI and BAPLIE. If and when a query arises regarding the container movement, a dedicated team is always there to respond to it. N4 also provides rail options, for advanced monitoring and management of containers irrespective of their location.

Once the containers are offloaded from the wagons at the port, the movement along with the location are monitored using Wireless PsilogTechlogix equipment. This technology enables all the Radio Data Terminals (RDT’s), Vehicle Mounted Terminals (VMT’s) and Hand-Held Devices to communicate with NAVIS SPARCS N4 system in recording the movement and location of containers. All the Straddle Carriers, Reach Stackers and Trucks are installed with these equipments and are controlled with the Equipment Control Department in NAVIS.

SPARCSN4 system is built on highly scalable fault tolerant architecture, based upon the J2EE design concept, advanced metadata driven model and highly configurable rules. SPARCS N4 intends to meet specific needs with system options that involve advanced configuration, customization and integration. Standard options offer full configurability and flexibility of SPARCS N4.

XPS

XPS is another powerful module that BPS has utilized for its planning and yard utilization. With effective planning and utilization BPS can handle at least 20% more containers in the same area compared to previous contractors. The current yard capacity can efficiently be put to more use as compared to earlier. This was clearly evident in the month of May 2014, when BPS reached a highest of 26,000 TEU’s container movement since the inception of Riyadh Dry Port in 1982 which was duly acknowledged by Saudi Railways Organization.

ECN4

ECN4 offers an advanced system of detailed yard model, graphical yard view, real time yard planning and complete management of rail operations. The system can maneuver real time container movement with equipment control.

SAP:

BAAS International Group has implemented the world’s leading ERP solutions provider SAP to support its Terminal Operating System NAVIS. SAP provides Human Resource Management, Sales and Distribution and Financial Administration to Riyadh Dry Port.

The software takes care of all the billing details, Freight charges are collected at Dammam before the container arrives at the Riyadh Dry Port. Container Charges and Port Charges are collected once the container arrives at the port resulting in transparency and flexible billing. All the shipping lines and agents are sent invoices for each and every container that is billed. This transparent way of billing allows SAP to generate detailed reports, with clear revenue history, which is then sent to SRO highlighting the total amount of revenue generated at the end of every day. Weekly and monthly reports from SAP determine the health and the statistics of Riyadh Dry Port.

Technical Department

The overall objective of the department is to service and maintain our fleet of equipment i.e. supporting the Operations Department through the availability of the Container Handling Equipment. The Operations Department gets support from the eleven Reefer Technicians, who monitor the condition of the Reefer cargoes on a 24 hours basis and report to the Operations Manager.

Our company owned Equipment consists of the following:

Straddle Carrier

09

Reach Stacker

04

Forklift (10 Tons)

Reefer Department

  • The Reefer Department comes under both Operations and Technical departments. In this division, staff members from various nationalities like India/Philippines/Saudi Arabia are working together to provide quality service to our customers.
  • The department is controlled by an engineer with other support staff like technicians/computer operators/helpers.
  • Riyadh Dry Port had the capacity of 200 reefer plugging until a decade ago, now it has almost 400 reefers.
  • At Riyadh Dry Port, reefer operation starts after the train wagons arrive from Dammam Port, with the reefer units. These reefer units are brought in the rail wagon while being plugged to rail borne (INMESOL) generators, for continuous power supply.
  • After arriving at the Riyadh Dry Port, the control room maneuvers the offloading process from the wagon and movement to the reefer location.
  • On getting the required power supply, the reefers are entered into the Navis system.
  • Every two hours, each and every reefer unit’s temperature is monitored and maintained. If any problem occurs in the maintenance of temperature then our reefer team finds a solution to the problem at hand; and if any major issue occurs, the agent is advised regarding the cross-stuffing with a new reefer box in the Custom’s presence.
  • Once charges are paid by the agent, Customs as well as the Saudi Food & Drug Authority (SFDA) start to inspect the containers. Upon clearance, by both customs and SFDA, the agent can collect the container from the Riyadh reefer yard.
