The communication systems, fax and email, are all on our intranet
as well as systems like marketing information, container inventory,
import documentation, finance, and tanker documentation control.
The mentioned systems are all custom developed for local needs
with built in EDI links when they need to interface with our Principals
All our email correspondence with our Principals is on our intranet
and saved in multiple locations..
We also have EDI links for container control with our Karachi Port
container yard. Our bankers have also installed EDI links within
our accounts department to monitor balances and expedite remittances.
Our intranet is accessible nationwide for all our offices.
||Two Servers with 80 GB storage, 1 GB memory.
||Mobile telephones for access to key personnel.
Our servers are backed up with rotating tape backups, with backups
on-site and off-site for full disaster planning. In 1999, we were
able to recover from a office fire within 5 days although all our
paper records and computers were destroyed.
Also, we have a 40 KVa F.G. Wilson backup generator for our office
so as to prevent any service interruptions. We also have a smaller
generator for our Karachi Port container yard office. We feel it
important that all air conditioners and other systems work properly
during the summer months when there are frequent breakdowns. This
enables us to give guaranteed service to our principals as well
as local clients.
