The CEO of DP World Limassol, Nawaf Abdulla, took part in a panel discussion as part of DP World Group’s CARGOES Digital Trade Flow event, held on the side-lines of Dubai Expo 2020 at DP World Pavilion.

During the conference, the CARGOES team of DP World presented the Group’s new digital logistics solution, which includes instant online cargo booking, efficient movement, as well as advanced tracking from origin to destination.

During the panel discussion held as part of the event, entitled ‘Technological Advancements in Ports and Terminals and their Solutions’, the DP World Limassol CEO explained that Limassol will be the first terminal within the group to upgrade its Terminal Operating System (TOS) to the latest version of Zodiac General Cargo (GC) and Container Terminal (CT) – a system that is entirely based on cloud computing modules.

According to the company, the new TOS will improve the terminal’s transparency and reporting standards, as it will be able to produce advanced operational reports and Key Performance Indicators (KPI).

The reports will also be used to review the port’s operational performance with regard to the real-time exchange of data and information.

 

Cypriot businesses and employers, through the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Cyprus Employers & Industrialists Federation (OEB), expressed their disapproval for a remote working mandate, citing a number of reasons for their lack of favour for such a measure.

The reasons mentioned by the CCCI and OEB include a detrimental effect on the economy, complaints expressed by both employees and citizens, as well as a lack of certainty on how beneficial remote working is in terms of containing the virus.

In addition, according to an interview in Cypriot outlet InBusiness, both the Chamber of Commerce and the OEB said that either a partial or complete lockdown is out of the question since such as measure would signify bad news for the economy.
