Sri Lanka Port Authority (SLPA) has gone live with Navis N4 TOS at its Colombo Port to optimise operations for efficiency at the port.

SLPA’s Colombo Port is a growing shipping hub in the South Asia Region, acting as a gateway for cargo to Europe, East and South Asia, the Persian Gulf, and East Africa.

The transshipment port operates at 2.5 million TEU annually.

The port was developed to accommodate deep water berths and the latest mainline vessels.

As its business was growing, SLPA’s Colombo Port needed an advanced TOS to update its offerings and aid in its business goals of modernising the facility to ensure enhanced safety, efficiency and productivity at its location.

The Steering Committee at SLPA noted, “Working with Navis on the implementation of N4 at Colombo Port has been a collaborative effort from Access International, Navis & SLPA teams.

“When COVID hit last year, the organisations showed dedication to execute the project from start to finish despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic.

“We are thrilled to be running with N4 so we can provide the best possible service to our customers through new and automated processes which will help optimize our operations at the port.”

Charles Gerard, VP & General Manager, Asia-Pacific at Navis, added, “One of our goals at Navis is to keep cargo flowing for our customers, and we are glad to have worked with SLPA to ensure that their team was able to implement N4 successfully during a challenging time for the industry.

“We are looking forward to helping them reach their business goals through our innovative solutions and hope to be an asset to them as their business scales.”
