Circle S.p.A. (“Circle”), company heading the homonymous group, specialized in the analysis and development of automation and digitalization solutions for the port sectors and intermodal logistics, listed on the AIM Italia market, organized and managed by Borsa Italiana, is upgrading and expanding its position in the MED area thanks to full operativity of Milos® Terminal Operating System (TOS) suite within CILP Multipurpose Terminal, main terminal operator in the port of Leghorn partecipated at 50% by NGI Group (Neri – GIP 2.0) and at remaining 50% by CPL.
The operativity of Milos® TOS suite took place within the challenging environment of CILP Terminal, characterised by different areas for the stocking of various product categories, that is forest products (over 700.000 tons in 2019), new cars (over 305.000 units in 2019) and vehicles (over 61.000 tons in 2019), project cargo (over 4.700 tons in 2019) and containers. Main effort of Circle and CILP teams was addressed to the entire complexity of Multipurpose Terminal.

Moreover, Milos® TOS allows complete interoperability with other stakeholders’ IT systems such as those used by North Tyrrhenian Sea Ports System Authority, transport companies, shipping agencies and ship owners.
Luca Abatello, CEO of Circle stated: «This is the most articulate and complex project of a Terminal Operating System for a Multipurpose Terminal in Italy. It has been a huge challenge and I’d like to thank our team and CILP team for having worked side by side; I am very proud to have achieved such an ambitious goal».
