PRPA signs on for KleinPort

The Prince Rupert Port Authority (PRPA) is the first port in the province to sign up for an internationally-used information management system.

Klein Systems Group announced on Nov. 5 that the PRPA had entered into an agreement to install the KleinPort Port Management Information System, which is in use by 35 other clients around the world. The system manages and tracks operational activities and cargo data, generates billing for services and charges and performs in-depth data analysis and reporting, with the company saying it is expected the system will “significantly increase the efficiency of the port authority”.

Don Krusel, president and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority, said the record of the software is what made it attractive.

“We selected Klein for its port industry experience and its proven ability to deliver comprehensive port management solutions,” he said.

“As a B.C. company, we are very pleased to welcome Prince Rupert Port Authority as our first B.C. port customer,” added Pete Behrendt, Managing Director of Klein Systems.
