Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership (MGT) and DP World Brisbane have both announced the successful installation of the Navis N4 terminal operating system.
In Brisbane, where DP World celebrated the opening of its expanded facility alongside Navis on Tuesday, the N4 system will support its semi-automated operations.
In Montreal the implementation was a migration from Navis’ legacy software SPARCS and an internally developed data host system to N4. N4 allows customers to run their operations from a single terminal to multiple terminals spanning numerous geographic locations managed from one central location.
By consolidating all systems on one platform, the move enables MGT to modernise its IT infrastructure, optimise terminal efficiency, and facilitate ongoing logistics innovations, while providing for an even safer and more secure environment.
“MGT’s migration to N4 demonstrates our focus on providing customers with the highest level of service. This is one of a series of technical and operational implementations in the planning or execution stages,” explained MGT CEO Michael Fratianni.
“Thanks to Navis and a highly motivated project team led by MGT IT Director Yannick Lacroix, the system roll-out was a flawless success in terms of system performance, stability and user acceptance.”
The installation of N4 at DP World Brisbane, the fourth member of the DP World Australia family of terminals to go live on Navis N4 over the last three years, completes the standardisation and optimisation of the TOS software across all DP World Australia sites.
DP World Brisbane is one of Australia’s most sophisticated terminals. Incorporating semi-automated operations managed by the Navis N4 TOS, along with automated stacking cranes (ASC), provided by Kalmar, and manned straddle carriers. The Brisbane terminal has a TEU capacity of 900,000, representing the capability to handle 90 percent of the TEU handled by the entire Port of Brisbane annually.
