Navis, LLC Key Developments

Hafen und Logistik AG Selects Navis N4 Terminal Operating System

Navis, LLC announced that Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) has signed a multi-terminal deal with Navis. As part of the agreement, N4 will serve as a central part of HHLA’s terminal operating system (TOS) landscape, a strategic investment that will aid in its ability to optimize vital terminal operations at multiple sites, more effectively handle, as well as meet evolving customer demands. N4 will be deployed at all three HHLA container terminals in the port of Hamburg: Container Terminal Altenwerder (CTA), Container Terminal Burchardkai (CTB) and Container Terminal Tollerort (CTT). With three high-performance terminals in Hamburg, HHLA is one of the foremost adopters of the containerization model. HHLA selected N4 after an extensive period of evaluation, due in part to N4’s flexibility and advanced configuration capabilities, as well as its successful deployments in terminals of different types and sizes around the world. With its multi-terminal, sophisticated order processing, planning, reporting and execution tools, N4 will provide HHLA with a platform that will support its growing and developing business, enabling HHLA to remain flexible to technology changes for years to come. Navis and HHLA will work together to successfully deliver N4 and support HHLA’s wide-variety of requirements, which include multi-terminal operations in Hamburg, the support of complex EDI process flows, the handling of feeder vessels on a port wide basis over a number of terminals, complex Hamburg rail operations support, the enhancement of inter-yard transfers and other truck, gate and vessel operational needs. Thus, HHLA and Navis have formed a close partnership to implement N4 through the execution of a number of phases to ensure that the correct level of analysis, training, configuration, testing and support occurs throughout the project lifecycle according to industry best practices.

Fertisa Port Terminal Selects Navis LLC's Navis N4 Terminal Operating System

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation announced a new N4 terminal operating system (TOS) license agreement with Ecuador-based Fertisa Port Terminal. Moving from its in-house system to N4 will enable the port to manage future anticipated growth, improve customer excellence and the terminal’s competitive advantage in the region. Despite its size, the decision to implement the Navis N4 TOS was an innovative, forward-thinking step for the terminal. N4 will help ensure that Fertisa Port Terminal can provide customer service excellence, increase the volume of containers on site and eventually, help to integrate automated equipment to help reduce response time.

Navis Furthers TOS Innovation with Launch of N4 3.1

Navis, LLC announced that N4 release 3.1 is generally available. N4 release 3.1 demonstrates Navis’ continued commitment to continuously improve the TOS’ usability, enhancing operational efficiency for its customers, delivering a platform that is extensible and flexible enough to meet terminal needs now and in the future. N4 3.1 is the first major release of N4 since 2.6 was unveiled in April 2014. New features and enhancements in N4 3.1 include: Automation: Functionality in N4 3.1 extends optimization for terminals using automated equipment (ASC, AGV, C-ARMG, as well as manned shuttles and straddle carriers). Advanced Rail Operations: This shift towards developing more sophisticated on-dock rail operations has magnified the added focus on decoupling the delivery of containers to and from the rail transfer points, as well as making the use of the RGCs as efficient as possible. Thus, N4 3.1 includes functionality and optimization for Rail Gantry Crane (RGC) schedulers, moves, interactions and automation. Architectural and System Performance Improvements: N4 3.1 has been performance tested for transshipment operations at 12 million TEU. Additionally, Navis continues work in this release to streamline chassis and bundling handling, improve chassis visibility and offer the ability to manage multiple containers on a chassis. Bundled flat racks are now managed as separate units in 3.1. Improved Migration from SPARCS to N4: As more and more customers migrate from legacy SPARCS to N4, N4 3.1 includes key features that aid in the transition. In particular, N4 3.1 delivers advanced support for RTG twin lift, straddle carrier dispatching and the crane team app for manned operations. It also includes an enhanced narrowband solution for equipment control dispatch, improving the tools and methodology for Express to N4 data migration and developing a third party host interface to maintain existing TOS functionality. User experience: As a result of direct collaboration with customers, N4 3.1 also offers a new web-based, “touch-aware” Crane Team user interface. The UI, intended for hatch clerks, crane drivers, foremen or quay side operators, is designed to improve user visibility and interaction, operational performance and equipment utilization.
