Navis In the News

For the launch of N4 3.3, Navis implemented a major improvement in its software development approach – leveraging an agile methodology – to improve the ability to build quality software and innovate by utilizing rapid feedback loops as part of the development cycle.

The Georgia Ports Authority marked 12.3 percent container volume growth in December, moving 292,172 twenty-foot equivalent container units, an increase of 32,099 TEUs compared to December 2015, a record for the GPA. Roll-on/Roll-off cargo mirrored that growth, with a 12.3 percent increase (7,000 units) in passenger vehicles and heavy equipment handled at Colonel’s Island terminal in Brunswick and Ocean Terminal in Savannah. Georgia’s deepwater ports moved 63,967 Ro/Ro units last month.

The GPA Board approved the purchase of new software to run gate, vessel and rail operations. The system currently in use at GPA has been retired by Navis and replaced by its N4 software. "The new software will have similar functionality, but better engineering and integration," said Bill Sutton, GPA director of information technology. "Navis' N4 software now has a successful track record of use in ports across North America." The software system will be phased in at GPA terminals over an 18-month period.
