Survey Reveals Biggest Challenges for Global Terminals

The biggest challenge for over three quarters of terminals is optimizing their operations to improve productivity, according to Navis' new research. The terminal operating system (TOS) provider’s survey of 75 N4 users from around the globe found that 76% of respondents listed the challenge of optimization as their most pressing concern, with cost reduction as the next highest with over two thirds (67%) of the vote. The third biggest issue for more than half (52%) of the participants is improving yard operations.

As terminals are pressed to move greater volumes of cargo faster than ever before, they are demanding marked improvements in terminal productivity. A recent survey gathered from more than 75 Navis N4 customers, reveals some insight into the increasingly critical role a Terminal Operating System (TOS) plays in making global trade smarter, safer and more sustainable.

With 330 global customers, Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, and the 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 new survey findings that demonstrate the proven ROI its customers have achieved by selecting the N4 terminal system. The results, gathered from more than 75 Navis N4 customers, provide a greater understanding for the increasingly critical role N4 plays in making global trade smarter, safer and more sustainable for all.
