At the beginning of July the MACS implementation team embarked upon a major project for a large Saudi-based logistics company to provide a container and transport management system for terminal operations in Jeddah.
When the new system goes live in August it will control the movement of containers through the terminal to provide the high level of accuracy and efficiency required by the customer. “This is the first such project we have worked on in Saudi Arabia” said Tony Liddar, Managing Director of MACS Software. “It’s a real opportunity to show the capabilities of the MACS technology in this type of application.”
The installation in Jeddah will be followed by a similar project in Dammam later this year.
Earlier this year, following a devastating earthquake and subsequent cholera outbreak, MACS sent in reinforcements to get the SCMS (a delivery partner for USAID) warehouse, which despatches vital antiviral drugs, back to full operational capacity.
We all celebrated MACS Software’s 21st birthday recently with a staff trip to the Sutton Elms Go-Karting circuit in Leicestershire in order to let off a little steam. Some of the team showed a natural aptitude for thrashing around a race track – a far cry from our day jobs designing software for some of the world’s leading corporations.
