The population tool available to terminal operator in MTIS is a useful way to add additional berths to your terminal. It is particularly useful if you already have a berth added to a terminal, as this allows you to copy an existing berth and use the data to create an another berth record. This saves time and avoids having to re-enter all details. You can simply amend the details you need and save it as a new berth record.
If you don't already have a berth listed in your terminal, an article that explains how to add them from the main terminal details area of MTIS can be found here.
The population tool can be found in the quick access menu when you login to your MTIS homepage:
