Navis In the News

US-based Matson deployed Navis’ N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at its terminals, located at three ports in Alaska, US. Deployment of the N4 TOS is expected to improve operations and increase the efficiency of Matson’s Alaska operations, which handles around 70,000 containers annually. Last year, the company purchased its Alaska operations, which includes port terminals, vessels and equipment, from Horizon Lines.

Paranaguá Container Terminal upgrades to Navis N4

Paranaguá Container Terminal (TCP), has implemented the N4 terminal operating system (TOS) from Navis, with the investment costing R$25m (US$7.3m). The migration to the new system is due to the evolution of the infrastructure and processes of the Brazilian facility, where capacity is scheduled to increase from 1.5m teu to 2.5m teu by 2018.

Matson is an important player in the economy of Alaska, providing residents and businesses with access to essential cargo. Matson acquired Horizon Lines’ operations in Alaska in May of 2015, including its port terminals, vessels and equipment, and has since made significant investments to fully integrate the Alaska operations into Matson’s Pacific network.

14 terminales portuarios en Brasil cuentan con Navis N4, mientras que en el mundo es usado por 316 centros portuarios, entre ellos Terminal Pacífico Sur; en Valparaíso, Puerto Central; en San Antonio, y Puerto Lirquén, en Penco.

Matson and TCP Live with N4

The latest N4 implementations with Matson highlight the efforts that Navis, a Cargotec company, is taking to extent N4’s appeal in a market segment it has traditionally found difficult.

Matson acquired Horizon Lines’ Alaska operations in 2015, including its three terminals at Anchorage, Kodiak and Dutch Harbor. These are smaller terminals, with volume across all three in the range of 70,000 containers annually - a facility size that can make investing in a TOS challenging. For Matson, however, it was already operating N4 at its Honolulu terminal, and has now extended the same TOS to its Alaska terminals. 

TCP, the company responsible for managing the Paranaguá Container Terminal, one of the largest container terminals in the country, has implemented a new integrated port operation system to increase terminal productivity, reduce costs and improve the interface with its customers. As part of the new system, the company has adopted Navis N4, a market leader in Brazil and worldwide, acknowledged as a complete solution for port terminals.

TCP Invests in New Navis Terminal

According to the executive, the modernization of the management system is in line with the terminal’s growth plan, which provides for an increase in capacity from 1.5 million TEUs to 2.5 million TEUs by 2018. Diego Neufert, IT manager for TCP, states that the choice of the new system was facilitated by an international consulting firm, and took into account Navis’ ability to track the terminal’s future growth and customer-focused services.

Navis N4 Terminal Operating System Deployed at Matson Terminals in Alaska

Matson is an important player in the economy of Alaska, providing residents and businesses with access to essential cargo, such as groceries, cars and building materials. Matson acquired Horizon Lines’ operations in Alaska in May of 2015, including its port terminals, vessels and equipment, and has since made significant investments to fully integrate the Alaska operations into Matson’s Pacific network. The company currently handles approximately 70,000 containers in the Alaska market annually.

Previously, Matson's Alaska terminal operations ran a combination of Navis SPARCS alongside a homegrown operating system. Following a thorough evaluation of TOS providers, Matson selected N4, due to Navis' strong track record of success partnering with terminal operators to optimize operations, as well as to standardize technology use across terminal networks. As part of the implementation process, Navis and Matson collaborated closely, working to configure, test and reconfigure N4 to ensure optimum performance at the three Alaska sites.

A migração para o novo sistema deve-se à evolução da infraestrutura e dos processos do Terminal de Contêineres de Paranaguá. “O Navis é o sistema de operação mais utilizado no mundo e deve gerar aumento de eficiência e produtividade para o Terminal. Com isso, o terminal poderá integrar as informações portuárias no sistema, gerando ainda mais agilidade e confiabilidade ao trabalho desenvolvido pela TCP”, explica Alexandre Rubio Teixeira Pinto, CFO da TCP.
