Review of designs made by consulting engineers and focus on the operational reality and workability and give practical advice on the layout. GPT experts eliminate bottlenecks and constraints in the designs, making sure that terminal will reach their objectives in terms of performance, annual throughput, level of customer service, sustainability and above all revenue and profit.
Review equipment specification: a detailed review of the equipment specification is key to achieve operational excellence. Key parameters for GPT are ergonomics, fuel or energy efficiency, sustainability, ease of maintenance and maximal operational availability. We also contribute to the structure and best practices for maintenance departments. A very specific specialty of GPT is the layout of cabins and the design of controls to operate the equipment.
Provide procurement assistance: after the designs are finalised and confirmed, GPT assists their customers during the negotiation, design review cycles and manufacturing supervision and factory testing.
Supervise the commissioning of equipment: GPT supports customers during the entire procurement cycle up until the commissioning of the equipment.
Actively care for safety, sustainability, environment and good working conditions in balance with the objectives and goals of the terminals and ports. Identifying risks when working in difficult climate conditions, dusty environments, high humidity or corrosive conditions put a lot of stress on men and machines. Based on our practical experience and technical knowledge, we provide practical, realistic and workable solutions to prevent equipment breakdowns.
Provide advice on TOS and technology: GPT guides terminals during the specification phase and conducts complete procurement projects assisting terminals during pre-selection, RFI, RFP, workshops and demonstrations, contract negotiations, implementation, user acceptance testing, training and go-live.
