The TMS3000 Terminal Management System is an integrated bulk distribution solution for petroleum, fertilizer, and chemical companies. It provides management of tank farm automation, product movement, driver access and security, inventory control, dispatching and the generation of manifests. The system integrates and controls loading racks and associated equipment, pumps, valves, motors, weigh scales, meters, card readers, data entry terminals, remote connections, printers and additization equipment. In addition to the core functionality, the system also provides features designed to automate truck, railcar, ship and barge, and pipeline receipt/shipment.

TMS3000 makes extensive use of multitasking features to allow data exchange between the automation system and corporate data systems. The system is scalable and can accommodate a small terminal and still allow for growth at the load rack. It provides a growth path for future integration and expansion of operations without losing the initial investment in the original system.
