Oracle Veteran Beefs Up Navis Line-Up

In 2016, Raj Gupta was appointed Navis chief technology officer and senior vice president of engineering after a twenty-year career in Silicon Valley, including positions at Silicon Graphics and at Oracle. Gupta served as vice president, engineering and operations at Oracle, where he spent more than a decade leading the development and implementation of enterprise software, SaaS products, cloud infrastructure, business intelligence and on-demand applications.

Located in northern Chile, TPA is a multipurpose terminal currently handling containers, bulk and break bulk cargo, supporting the trade industries of Bolivia, Chile and Peru. Given its proximity to Bolivia, TPA is the natural choice for managing Bolivia’s foreign trade, which accounts for 85 percent 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 and 365 days of free storage for import cargoes and 90 days for export cargoes. This often creates dwell time cargo and a series of other operational challenges, which the terminal is seeking to address with the help of Navis N4.
