Navis In the News

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation and provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading organizations across the shipping supply chain, today unveiled at Navis World 2017 a broader software strategy that will enable container terminals and carriers alike to streamline their ocean supply chains and better collaborate together, transforming how goods are efficiently delivered. The strategy delivers a more comprehensive set of solutions to optimize terminal performance, vessel performance, and cloud-based collaboration that drives transparency, efficiency and profitability to a network of ocean carriers and terminal operators.

"As the ocean supply chain has grown more complex and new challenges have arisen for all members of the shipping community, Navis is committed to growing its software and services portfolio to support current and future customer needs," said Benoit de la Tour, president of Navis and head of software business, Kalmar. "Navis' broader software focus is in direct response to this promise, further extending the company's trusted, industry-leading solutions beyond terminal operations to drive improved optimization and performance for a broader set of ocean trade entities, including ocean carriers globally."

Navis today announced winners of its Inspire Awards program at Navis World 2017, sponsored by Port Technology International. PD Ports, CMA CGM, YILPORT, Puerto Central and Hapag-Lloyd received Awards of Excellence, while DaChan Bay Terminals, China COSCO Shipping Container Line, Terminal de Contêineres de Paranaguá, DCT Gda?sk SA and DP World UK earned Awards of Recognition.

Two new technological developments in Pacific Rim ocean cargo shipping took place last month that could redefine terminal and carrier strategies for the long term. First came the announcement that Navis – part of Cargotec Corporation – is enhancing supply chain productivity at Davao International Container Terminal (DICT) in the Philippines by implementing its N4 terminal system, designed to increase throughput and productivity.

On three 20,000 TEU new series of the China COSCO Shipping (CCS) group will be installed MACS3 charge calculator. The orders mark a new dimension for the ship's charging computer developed by Interschalt. As of this year, Navis Carrier Solutions develops and distributes Interschalt's planning software and load calculator. The company from Oakland (USA) marks the global technology standard for the management of cargo movements in terminals.

China COSCO Shipping (CCS) Group has ordered MACS3 loading computers from Navis Carrier Solutions for three 20,000 TEU container vessels currently under construction at Shanghai Wai Gao Qiao shipyard in China, scheduled for completion between April 2017 and February 2018.

Oiling the Wheels with IT

Modern container terminals would simply not be viable without terminal operating systems (TOS). For facilities today, a high-performing TOS can often be the essential ingredient for good productivity, whether that be at the quayside, in the yard or at the gate. Many terminals, especially the larger-scale ones, like to develop their own tailor-made TOS. A spokesperson for one large global operator told CM that developing an in-house TOS can be a sensible option if the terminal operator has the scale to justify it.
