Navis In the News

Located within the Port of New York and New Jersey—the largest port on the East Coast and third largest in the U.S.—PNCT is among the most important terminals responsible for moving cargo throughout the nation and abroad, handling 1.3 million TEUs annually. With the region’s massive project to raise the Bayonne Bridge near completion, larger vessels will be able to call at PNCT for the first time. As a result, PNCT has undergone a $500 million terminal redevelopment project—a move expected to increase container capacity to 2.3 million TEUs by 2019. This anticipated surge in container volumes, combined with the need to move cargo faster and more efficiently than ever before, drove the decision to upgrade to N4.

Newark Volumes Up After N4 TOS go-live

Chris Garbarino, vice president of operations at PNCT, said: “The implementation of N4 provides us the foundation and platform that will allow PNCT to expand our data and service offerings to not only benefit carriers, but other critical stakeholders such as shippers/forwarders by providing tailored solutions that meet the needs of today’s supply chain.”

PNCT selected N4 due to a variety of reasons, including its enhanced data, billing and reporting capabilities; the sophistication of its optimization modules; configuration and data analytics capabilities; and its proven integration and compatibility with other advanced terminal technologies, including PDS, OCR and gate management systems. As part of the implementation, PNCT worked in close partnership with Navis to ensure a seamless upgrade to N4 with no disruption to its active operations or customers.

Benoit de la Tour, president of terminal operating systems provider Navis, which is extending its reach beyond the terminal, stressed the need to simplify supply chain complexity, noting how the industry is behind in digitalization.

PNCT Sets a Record with N4

Navis and PNCT has announced an important success at the Port of New York New Jersey. After converting to the Navis N4 TOS in early January, PNCT successfully handled record container volumes without disruption to its customers.

As part of the implementation, PNCT worked in close partnership with Navis to ensure a seamless upgrade to N4 with no disruption to its active operations or customers. Coordination between its operations and IT groups, significant and thorough early testing and configuration, as well as live testing integrating various technologies and vendors with N4 resulted in not only a successful upgrade, but also enabled the terminal to rapidly optimize its operations following the January 2017 go-live.

Liftoff in demand for automated ports

Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co Ltd, the world's biggest port machinery manufacturer, said it sees automated port terminals becoming a new growth engine and expects them to further expand to reach 100 countries and regions in 2017.

Located in northern Chile, TPA is a multipurpose terminal. Given its proximity to Bolivia, TPA is the natural choice for managing Bolivia’s foreign trade, which accounts for 85% of the cargo transferred by the terminal. Bolivian cargoes that are transferred to TPA receive special benefits including free transit from the port to the border without taxes.

While big data and optimisation are the buzzwords of the moment, Navis’ operational innovation expert Oscar Pernia has stressed that ports do not need to reinvent the wheel to benefit from improved processes. Speaking at Navis World, Dr Pernia told delegates that ports and terminals should focus on simplification and not on adding more and more software.
