We talk with Andy Barrons and Robert Inchausti about Navis' most recent achievements and plans for the future, as well as new technologies at ports themselves.

Navis Charts a New Course

Navis, part of Cargotec, is not losing focus on terminal operations and developing software to support the terminal industry's journey with automation, but it has a strategic vision to go much wider, with software and solutions that enable carriers and terminals to better collaborate, leveraging software to streamline operations and drive supply chain efficiencies.

Even if alliance partners have corresponding port preferences, there is still potential for conflict at the terminal level if more than one line in an alliance has interests in different terminals in the same port.

 Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, is staging the three-day conference in San Francisco, attracting supply chain managers charged with keeping abreast of the latest changes in automation. Benoit de la Tour, president of Navis and head of software business, Kalmar, notes that Navis’ broader software focus is in direct response to “a more complex and challenging” ocean cargo environment.
