Navis, part of the Cargotec Corporation, and provider of operational technologies that aim to unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading terminal operators, has announced that Exolgan Container Terminal in Buenos Aires (EBA) has successfully completed its implementation of the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS).
In a previous article by PTI, it was reported that the Baltic Container Terminal in Riga, Latvia installed Navis N4 software.
Upgrading to N4 from SPARCS Express was vital to prepare for future automated operational processes, update to a modern platform, support changing industry requirements and to improve ROI potential at the terminal, according to a Navis press release.
Roberto Negro, CEO of EBA, said: “Exolgan was the first Terminal in the world to implement Navis Express, moving to N4 TOS platform was a natural path that will further enhance our operational excellence and will help us maintain and heighten our competitive edge in Argentina.

EBA is the only terminal in Buenos Aires with the capacity to simultaneously operate two mega-ships in the port.

Chuck Schneider, Regional General Manager for Navis, said: “As a long-time SPARCS Express customer, we are proud that EBA has furthered its investment in Navis and our industry-leading TOS to drive necessary improvements in safety, customer service, productivity and efficiency at the terminal.
“We are confident that N4 will deliver these benefits and more, giving the facility a distinct competitive advantage in the region and positioning its operations for long-term success.”
