About Us


Copas was founded in Rotterdam, The Netherlands in 2000, with the aim to deliver Information Technology for port terminals and a focus on container terminals. At first Copas became an authorized distributor of first class products from other suppliers and soon started the development of specific additional modules for Electronic Data Interchange and the internet. With the acquisition of STEPII in 2005, Copas became the proud owner of a container terminal control system.

A more elaborated second version of STEPII was introduced in 2009, which evolved into STEP end of 2012. This version supports every main activity of a modern container terminal today. Products
