Navis, a provider of operational technologies and services designed to improve performance efficiencies across the shipping supply chain, has announced that its N4 operating system has been implemented at Port America’s Napoleon Container Terminal.
The terminal – in New Orleans, Louisiana – has an annual TEU of 350,000, and has just implemented several technological upgrades, including N4 and the VoyagerTrack appointment system to better meet the demands of its customers.
Customers of Napoleon Container Terminal also have access to Ports America TOS Web Portal, which interfaces with the Navis N4 system to provide them with real-time information to track cargo from arrival to the point when it is available to be picked up.
Susan Gardner, General Manager, Americas Region, Navis, commented: “As technology plays an increasingly important role in terminal operations, we are always looking for ways to partner with our customers to help meet their unique business and operational goals.
“We are thrilled our N4 TOS was selected to help take Napoleon Container Terminal’s operations to the next level and are pleased that the system is already creating new efficiencies for the terminal.”
Keith Palmisano, General Manager, Napoleon Container Terminal, stated: “Having N4 in place helps ensure we can effectively manage larger container volumes and meet the evolving demands of our global customer base.
“The seamless implementation process would not have been possible without the collaboration between our operations and IT groups and Navis’ support team.
“Additionally, thorough simulation and live testing of gate, yard and vessel processes prior to our go-live, was essential for ensuring the TOS would perform as designed from day one.”
