Ports of Botany, Fremantle and Melbourne complete TOS upgrades
Navis has announced that DP World Australia’s three terminals in Sydney, Fremantle and Melbourne have utilised automated testing to complete three Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) upgrades.
The TOS implementation will allow the Dubai-based operator to centralise its technology platform in the country.
“We are committed to evolving the technology used at our terminals. N4 version 2.4.7 allows us to manage terminal operations more effectively and productively and as a result, provides a greater level of reliability to our customers,” said Richard Johnstone, director of business systems solutions at DP World Australia.
“This sizable upgrade was completed within a four-hour window which is a testament to the skill and dedication of our business systems solutions team and terminal system personnel.”
“The project called ‘Chatterjee Strategy’ was planned in March and executed this month on time and in line with our centralized / standardized strategy. Moving our Sydney and Fremantle terminals from SN4 2.1 to SN4 2.4.7 was a major upgrade in itself,” said Johnstone.
The fourth and final N4 implementation is currently in progress at DP World Brisbane and is expected to be operational in early 2014. Once complete, Brisbane will be the first automated operation for DP World Australia.
