Navis, part of Cargotec, has signed a partnership agreement with Data and System Planning-Switzerland (DSP) to facilitate increased awareness of Octopi by Navis in the European market.

Octopi was recently acquired by Navis and has been specifically developed for container and mixed cargo terminals with terminals with annual throughput of under 300,000 TEUs.

According to DSP, Octopi is uniquely positioned to have immediate impact in Europe, offering enterprise power tools to terminals at an affordable subscription price.

Octopi delivers a cost-effective and easy-to-use TOS solution with core planning and execution capabilities including EDI exchange, gate processing, general cargo capabilities, yard management, vessel planning and critical reporting and invoicing functions. Additionally, the solution offers built-in business intelligence dashboards as well as recently expanded general cargo capabilities.

“DSP has been a solid Navis Partner since 2007, with 22 certified experts on Navis N4,” says Marco Fehmer, DSP CEO. “Adding Octopi to the scope of our partnership will open the door to several important markets including small- and medium-sized container and general cargo marine terminals, inland terminals and empty depots. We look forward to providing local and regional operators access to meaningful digitalization and the opportunities that come with it.”  

The Octopi TOS is currently in use at 13 sites in seven countries and has seen recent partnerships with Tropical Shipping, Worldwide Terminals Fernandina and Port International du Cap Haitien.

“We are delighted to partner with DSP in our efforts to introduce Octopi to the European market,” said Martin Bardi, VP of Global Sales, Octopi by Navis. “We believe that our software presents a  special opportunity for historically overlooked terminals across the continent to realize significant value at an affordable price.”
