Navis In the News

In the short time that GMP Le Havre has been using N4 at Terminal North, the terminal has already experienced operational productivity improvements and expects much more as the system is optimized. N4 handled GMP’s normal operational volumes from day one with no issues and no drop in productivity.

Da Chan Bay Terminal One has broken through the 1MTEU /year barrier for the first time. Chief Executive Officer, Ben Lai said: "This has been a pivotal year for Da Chan Bay Terminal One.  Hitting this million TEU milestone for 2013 and successfully implementing Navis N4 means we're well positioned to capture future growth in the Pearl River Delta."

N4 offers a trusted platform for Modern Terminals due to its flexibility, extensibility and proven success in the marketplace. The implementation of N4 enables Modern Terminals to automate and standardise operational processes, including equipment and yard operations, to ensure the best customer service offering that is aligned with the company’s brand promises. In addition to the Navis TOS, the project also included the integration and upgrade of other existing systems that support the gate, customs clearance, billing and customer portal.

Navis has announced that DP World Australia has successfully completed terminal operating system (TOS) upgrades at three of four planned sites.

DP World Sydney, DP World Fremantle and, now, DP World Melbourne have concluded essential TOS implementations and are now fully operational with the Navis N4 software.

Peel Ports will be rolling out N4 one terminal at a time over the next 3 to 4 years, beginning with Liverpool, at both the Royal Seaforth Container Terminal and Liverpool2, the terminal scheduled for completion next year. The new TOS will also be implemented at the Manchester Ship Canal, in Heysham, Clydeport, Belfast, Dublin, Chatham, and Sheerness.

 

A British ports operator has deployed Honeywell’s Thor VM1 vehicle mounted mobile computers and MX9 handheld devices to improve workflow and productivity at the terminal.

The technology has enabled PD Ports to secure important new business by improving seamless handover between Wi-Fi and 3G radio connections using mobile computers and handheld devices.

Navis is now running a blog series on "proven best practices that help terminals maximize the success of their TOS go-lives" on its online community website (http://community.navis.com). The blogs are writtend by the Navis Professional Services team and will highlight 10 best practices based on projects to date.

These include building a team, taking a phased approach to implementation, minimizing customization and ensuring IT infrastructure readiness. Other blogs will cover specific plans forb testing, data migration, systems migration, systems recovery, communication and training.

With ocean freight rates on the rise and massive vessels transporting more TEU, container terminals from Mexico to Brazil are using technology to optimize their operations. As a result, Navis says that it is experiencing a "huge momentum in the region", with its SPARCS N4 terminal operating system (TOS) being the solution of choice for many regional ports and terminals.

There are nine container terminals in India that use the Navis TOS. These include terminals in Chennai, Pipavav, Mundra, Kochi, Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, Krishnapatnam and Visakhaptanam. Three of these are on the latest system, SPARCS N4, while the other six are running the legacy SPARCS/Express system.
