China Teams with TOS Tech Giant to Teach Students

Wuhan University of Technology (WUT), one of China's leading universities, has partnered with Navis to teach prospective nautical officers in loading and unloading operations for container ships and bulk carriers. The programs used will be Navis' MACS3 ship loading computer and the Navis StowMan stowage planning software. It will cover the segment of 76,000 dwt to 300,000 dwt, which is classed as a ‘very large ore carrier’, with on-board planning support provided by the MACS3 stability program.

Chinese University Implements Navis Training Software

China's Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) has partnered with Navis to implement the MACS3 ship loading computer and the Navis StowMan stowage planning program as educational software. In the future, prospective nautical officers will learn loading and unloading operations for container ships and bulk carriers in the segment of 76,000 dwt to 300,000 dwt (very large ore carrier), with on-board planning support provided by the MACS3 stability program from Navis. In addition, students will use the shore-side stowage planning software, StowMan, to learn about the stowage optimization of containers on ships.

Navis Has Been Awarded to PD Ports For Its Commitment

PD Ports has been given the title of Excellence as part of the Navis Inspire Awards ceremony. This Awards ceremony has taken place as a part of this year’s Navis World Annual Conference that took place in San Francisco. The title of Excellence is the highest rank that can be given at the annual awards and PD Ports had to compete with tough competition from around the world in order to claim the title. This is the second time that PD Ports have been celebrated by Navis. The port logistics company previously received recognition for their ability to implement the system across a variety of unitized platforms. This year the award was given for the use of Navis’ business intelligence dashboards at Teesport.

Wuhan University of Technology (WUT), one of China’s leading universities, has partnered with Navis to implement the MACS3 ship loading computer and the Navis StowMan stowage planning program as educational software.

In addition, students will use the shore-side stowage planning software, StowMan, to learn about the stowage optimization of containers on ships.

Included in the scope of delivery of the stowage planning software are three container ship profiles - of the classes 4,250 TEU, 8,530 TEU and 10,000 TEU - based on ship profiles which belong to the fleet of the largest Chinese shipping companies that currently utilize the MACS3 program on board. Developed from the MACS3 software, it offers integration of the loading computer and StowMan, thus providing ship data pertaining to stability, hydrostatics and the securing of loads during the stowage planning process in real time, a key strength of both programs.

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.
