Hogia Terminal Operating System
Terminals are busy places, but with the Hogia Terminal Operating System you know exactly what’s happening, as it happens. What, when, where – it’s all there, across the whole logistics flow. Easy to access and in real-time. Our solutions can help automate and streamline operational work, invoicing and administration, saving you time and resources, so you can focus on what you do best – growing your business.
Future-proof your business
The future places high demands on paperless shipments to speed up the flow of goods and provide greater and more reliable data exchange. The pursuit of realizing this ambition requires that as much as possible of your administration of goods should be handled digitally. This is exactly what a modern TOS is all about: facilitating information flow and minimizing paper use and manual handling.
Automation is key
Take total control of your terminal by using automated processes. Hogia TOS will help you handle the units that pass through the terminal in an effective way, based on your internal processes. Hogia TOS uses a flexible and configurable combination of different variables to determine where the units should be dropped, stored and picked up.
A multi-purpose Terminal Operating System
Whatever cargo combination you’re handling, Hogia TOS has standard modules to cover all your needs, and improve your efficiency in handling them. We appreciate that all terminals have a uniqueness in their customer base, their layout, their infrastructure and their operations. That is why Hogia TOS has been specifically designed to provide a standard yet modular solution. We can build a system that will feel tailor made for your operations whilst still providing all the benefits of an off-the-shelf, ‘state of the art’ solution.
We believe in making information available
Whether it's through our open interfaces for integration, classic EDI or through dashboards, KPIs and reports, we want the usage and sharing of information to be the centre of both yours and our business.
It’s as simple as that.
The power of scalability
Hogia TOS is a suite of modules consisting of core functionality with additional tools and features. Building software in this way allows you to scale up your system when and if you need to, be that an addition in cargo type, new automation, a change in the terminal, or a change in your customers’ needs.

More efficient access control system for the Port of Trelleborg
As part of striving to become the best RoRo port in Europe, Port of Trelleborg is investing in digitalisation and new IT solutions. In project collaboration with Hogia, the port has introduced a fully automatic gating solution for the port’s existing gate-in. With the new solution, the trucks can keep moving throughout the access control process, and without having to stop to show a ticket or entry documentation. This enables a constant flow of vehicles into the port, thereby streamlining entry, and avoiding congestion build-up. This also has a positive impact on both the environment as well as safety within the port and on the port hinterland road network.
