Modern Terminals Limited has implemented Navis’ N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS) at its facilities in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay.
The terminal operator opened Hong Kong’s first purpose-built container-handling facility in 1972.
Today, it owns and operates container terminals at the Kwai Tsing Container Port in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay Terminals in the Pearl River Delta region.
The ports in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay utilise a total of 42 quay cranes and 146 Rubber-Tyred Gantry (RTG) cranes, handling over 6.5 million TEU annual.
The implementation of the modernised TOS seeks to provide high-quality services to its customers and other users of the terminals while supporting Modern Terminals’ overall operations.
Due to travel restrictions as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the launch of the systems were supported remotely by Navis’ Professional Services team.
The team delivered a smooth and quick implementation, improving the terminal’s time to value.
“Our TOS is one of the keys to delivering high levels of productivity and efficiency in our operations,” said Michael Yip, Chief Innovation Officer of Modern Terminals Limited.
“With the updated system in place, we are well-positioned to not only meet the needs of our shipping line customers today but also support our future plans to bring in more digital initiatives to our terminals in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay.”
David Houser, Vice President and General Manager of Asia-Pacific at Navis, added: “During a high stakes environment for the global supply chain industry, we are thrilled to work together with the Modern Terminals team to further advance its terminal operations and reach its business goals with the latest version of N4.
“With our intelligent TOS connecting the dots throughout the terminals, Modern Terminals has all the data it needs at its fingertips to make real-time business decisions; building its reputation as a reliable gateway to keep cargo flowing smoothly in the region.”
Navis’ N4 TOS has also been brought online at Terminal Container Ravenna (TCR) to increase its efficiency and productivity.
The news came as the terminal celebrated 20 years of business experience.
