Dossier Boosts Rating
New York Container Terminal earned an “A+” rating from an outside auditing firm for its control and maintenance of 288 widely divergent pieces of rolling equipment and parts inventory, the company reports. The rating came after the same department had failed a similar audit in 2005. According to Charlie Priscu, the container facility’s manager of power equipment, the rating boost was due largely to the implementation of Dossier maintenance management software.New York Container Terminal (NYCT), a deep-water container facility on 187 acres on Staten Island in New York Harbor, transfers cargo containers between ships and surface transportation modes, including truck and rail. Priscu is responsible for the maintenance and operation of an unusual array of rolling stock, including 75 switchers or yard hostlers, ninety 10,000-pound fork lifts, three 30,000-pound fork lifts, twenty-five 30-ton top-loaders, 10 so-called sidebars, 70 pickup trucks, 12 SUVs, 2 school buses (to ferry crew to and from ships) and one General Electric 2,000 hp diesel rail locomotive.
