Navis has announced that ITS ConGlobal (ITSC) has selected Octopi cloud-based terminal operating system (TOS) by Navis for its greenfield intermodal facility, the Mid-Willamette Valley Intermodal Center in Millersburg, Oregon.
Centrally located in the Willamette Valley, the facility is positioned in an ideal area to serve as a centralised reload centre for the valley’s natural resource-based economy.
The new intermodal facility will allow goods to be shipped by rail to maritime ports decreasing traffic congestion on the interstates.
ITSC needed a TOS to optimise the planning and execution of its operations and enable connectivity within its broader supply chain ecosystem.
In addition to its core planning and execution capabilities, Octopi allows integration with ITSC’s Transportation Management System (TMS) and the Sight.IO AGS solution, ensuring peak operational performance throughout the entire cargo journey.
“Intermodal transportation is becoming increasingly common as it is a great strategy for reducing freight costs and carbon footprint, among other benefits,” said Kim Kuesel, VP and General Manager, Americas, Navis.
“ITS Conglobal is a demonstrated leader in intermodal and depot services and Navis looks forward to both working and growing with ITSC by providing a cloud-based TOS that connects to a larger ecosystem, and that can scale as ITSC grows their strategic presence in the region and into more inland depots with maintenance & repair capabilities.”
