N4 for Aalborg

RAL is moving forward with Navis as change is on the horizon for the Greenland market. State-owned RAL has traditionally been the only line serving Greenland. It recently signed an agreement with Iceland’s Eimskip that could see Greenland receiving some direct calls, bypassing Aalborg. A new port in Greenland is also set to open soon, at Nuuk where Sikuki Nuuk Harbour is completing a new facility. In October it took delivery of the first harbour cranes in Greenland, two Liebherr LHM420 mobile harbour cranes. The terminal is set to open in 2017.

Greenland-based cargo service provider Royal Arctic Line (RAL) has activated the new N4 operating system from Navis at its terminal in Aalborg, Denmark. The newly installed terminal operating system (TOS) has replaced RAL’s existing in-house system and has streamlined business processes of the terminal. The upgraded TOS will enable the terminal to handle 50,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) and 25-28 cranes in an hour.

Navis Goes Nordic

As the sole provider along the two countries’ shipping lanes, RAL chose N4 as a modern platform that could better service all of its current customers after finding that its multiple disparate systems were impacting operations. Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation and provider of operational technologies and services, has secured business with an important customer through N4 as RAL serves as the only container terminal in northern Denmark and the only service provider to all of Greenland.
