Jade began the expansion of its logistics division into Europe in 2007
with the commissioning of DCT Gdansk in Poland, and since then its marine
terminal operating system, JMT (Jade Master Terminal), has been adopted by
leading terminal operators in ports all around the world.

Jade Software Managing Director Craig Richardson says that from January
, Maersk post-panamax ships sailing on Maersk Line's AE10 service from
China will now call into DCT Gdansk each week bringing Polish, Russian and
Finnish cargo to be discharged at DCT Gdansk.

"To give an idea of scale of these vessels and how much the Baltic
terminal will transform the logistics of containers in Europe, Maersk's
post-panamax ships can carry over 8,200 20 foot containers. These ships are
more than twice the size of vessels that call on smaller routes. As a result
DCT Gdansk is expected to become Poland's largest terminal in 2010," says

DCT Gdansk's CEO, Mr Boris Wenzel says, "The Jade Master Terminal system
continues to serve us well as a strategic business enabler and Jade's
innovative terminal operating system sits at the very core of our portfolio
of client-focused data integration services. "

"We believe that the future of terminal business will be increasingly
defined by the sophistication of data services and the level of electronic
transactions we can provide to our clients in addition to just moving boxes.
Our ability to deliver these data services allows our clients to reduce their
costs significantly, and Jade's flexibility is an important factor in our
capability to develop customised solutions for all our different clients."

Richardson says Jade Software has had a close working relationship with
DCT Gdansk since commissioning in 2007.

"We both see ourselves as market challengers in the global ports sector
and there is a strong sense of pride and accomplishment when we see our
customers realise their operational and commercial objectives using our
products," says Richardson.

Richardson adds that Jade Software had recently reviewed its marine
terminals strategy and would continue to challenge conventional thinking by
bringing together world-class terminal design and operations expertise with
their unified terminal operating software.

"We know our customers have choices and their decision to buy JMT comes
with the caveat that Jade delivers on its value proposition. We are in
business of creating value for our customers not just selling software."

Lastly, Jade indicated they were likely to expand their London office in
February to meet increasing demand for their software and terminal consulting
services in Europe.
