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. 

PD Ports has embraced business intelligence in its operations to optimise processes and plan better for future resource allocation. Speaking at Navis World, Ian Richardson, application specialist at PD Ports, explained how the UK port operator had adopted business intelligence (BI) and associated tailored reports to reduce the number of RTGs needed for a ship call and to enhance labour allocations to meet the needs of busier gate periods.
