ELECTRONIC CONTAINER TRUCKING SYSTEM (eCTS)
The Platform to support the Logistics and Transportation Industry.
eCTS is an app-based mobile product that allows hauliers to be dynamically linked to the CMS and TRIP-TMS systems. The system comes with the eGate function to facilitate connectivity between container truck drivers, transport operations, container depots and eventually other customer nodes on the supply chain. It allows for automated gate processing at the facility node (i.e. Container depot), providing an electronic Proof of Delivery (ePOD) management and camera functionality that can link photos to stakeholders in real-time.

The system was officially launched at the CDAS Logistics and Transportation Conference 2016 on 23 August 2016, where the system also officially went live. eCTS was eventually adopted by the majority of the container haulage industry to bring them onto a smart platform and digitalize their operations by April 2017.
