While speaking about Navis' involvement in shaping maritime technology at ports, Barrons said: “What we're doing is using software to enable more synchronized planning.
“From the stowage planning process through to the yard planning process and the berth window planning process, what we're working on is really connecting those so as you're doing that planning process you can see the impact downstream on your yard plan, for example.”
