Navis N4 Goes Live in the Philippines

Navis’s N4 terminal operating system (TOS) has gone live at the Davao International Container Terminal (DICT), located in the southeastern part of the Philippines. According to a statement by the US-based software developer, which is part of Cargotec Corporation, DICT decided to invest in a new TOS to improve its efficiency and throughput. As part of efforts to increase capacity, DICT, which opened in 2013, completed the construction of its second container terminal berth last year.

The Move to Digitise

Scott Holland, product management vice president for Navis, which now owns the StowMan brand, told Container Shipping & Trade: “StowMan, together with the XVELA collaboration platform, provides a unique value proposition to carriers and terminals. While StowMan provides the most accurate stability results and lashings calculations, as well as the most advanced stowage planning optimisation features for the carrier, XVELA now connected to StowMan offers a comprehensive, cloud-based collaboration platform and network for ocean carriers and terminals to share information, and provides a new level of efficiency for our customers.”

Navis System Boosts Davao Port Operations

The Davao International Container Terminal (DICT) has greatly improved its ship turnaround time after installation of its Navis N4 terminal system, the port’s Vice President said. DICT Vice President Bonifacio B. Licayan explained that speeding up operations at the terminal, which boasts on its website that it is the most modern container terminal in the Philippines, is critical because a large part of its freight volume is fresh fruit and other produce.

New Fleet of Mega-Ships to Install Navis

Navis is venturing into new waters by installing its MACS3 loading computer across eleven mega-ships, all 20,000 TEU or more, being constructed in China. The system has never been used to load cargo on vessels of this size before. The first order announced is for three 20,000 TEU China Cosco Shipping (CCS) Group vessels, currently under construction at Shanghai Wai Gao Qiao shipyard in China and scheduled for completion between April 2017 and February 2018.

Navis Benefits Filipino Agriculture Trade

More than 80% of the terminal’s exports are refrigerated containers of fresh produce as it’s the only container terminal in the region that is ship-to-shore-equipped and Navis-enabled, allowing more predictable and reliable arrival and departure of containerships with time-sensitive cargo. DICT handles approximately 260,000 TEU annually and has serviced the agricultural region since opening its gate in 2013.

MACS3 loading computers have been ordered by China COSCO Shipping (CCS) Group for three 20,000 TEU container vessels with hull numbers H1413-1415, that are currently under construction at Shanghai Wai Gao Qiao shipyard in China and scheduled for completion between April 2017 and February 2018. The onboard loading computer MACS3 covers a wide range of calculations relating to hydrostatics, intact and damage stability as well as the ship's longitudinal strength. In addition to the hardware, the MACS3.net basic program includes squat calculation, the container management modules BELCO, the dangerous goods module DAGO I, the lashing functionality Sealash (GL 2013), online interfaces to tank gauging systems and hull stress monitoring systems and the trim optimization module TROP that enables the vessel's trim to be optimized for reduced fuel consumption based on its current loading condition.

Davao International Container Terminal's (DICT) container terminal in the south-eastern part of Philippines has gone live with the N4 terminal system from Navis. DICT collaborated with Navis to install the N4 terminal system in 2013 with the aim of improving operational efficiency. Implementation of the system will also enable DICT to provide better export and import services, as well as increase the predictability of the arrival and departure of containerships holding time-sensitive cargo.

Located in the southeastern part of the Philippines, DICT offers world-class container terminal facilities and services in this largely agricultural region. As more cargo now requires refrigerated containers, DICT transformed its operations to become an industry leader – more than 80 percent of the terminal’s exports are refrigerated containers of fresh produce. As the only container terminal in the region that is ship-to-shore-equipped and Navis-enabled, DICT’s streamlined operations provide convenience for exporters and importers, and more predictable and reliable arrival and departure of containerships with time-sensitive cargo. This, in turn, helps ensure the global competitiveness of the region’s export-grade products.

This, in turn, helps ensure the global competitiveness of the region’s export-grade products. “As a relative newcomer to the container terminal business, we needed to make sure we had the best technology in place to help us compete with other, more seasoned operators,” said Bonifacio B. Licayan, Vice President, DICT. 

“El récord logrado en 2016 demuestra la creciente demanda del mercado para los servicios de Navis que abarcan todas las regiones del mundo, incluyendo 20 instalaciones en la región EMEA, 17 en América y seis de Asia-Pacífico. Al cierre de 2016, hay 316 clientes N4 en más de 50 países con 151 terminales en operaciones y 87 adicionales en diversas etapas de implementación” expresó la compañía mediante un comunicado de prensa.
