Octopi, part of Navis and Cargotec Corporation, has announced that it has gone live with Octopi by Navis at Federal Marine Terminals (FMT), Port Manatee.
The stevedoring company implemented Octopi as part of its larger strategy for enhanced operational efficiency.
Located in Florida, Port Manatee is the closest US deepwater seaport to the Panama Canal and handles more than 10 million tons of cargo each year including bulk, breakbulk, container and general cargo.
As a tenant of the Port, FMT implementing Octopi at Port Manatee will provide visibility into its operations to keep its customers and FMT employees informed in real-time and will aid in its business goals of increased quality, efficiency and productivity.
Due to the dedication of both the Octopi and FMT teams, the implementation was completed ahead of schedule and was able to be put into practice sooner.
“At Federal Marine Terminals, we have made it a priority to improve our performance to better support our customers’ changing business needs,” said Chris Dugas VP of Operations at FMT.
“We selected the Octopi software because it is user friendly and gave us the ability to have real-time data sharing for all of our stakeholders, giving us a competitive edge. To date, we have already seen great results and have gotten positive feedback from our employees using it. It has really helped us boost our capabilities at the port.”
