Operational technology specialists Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation, has unveiled N4 3.7, the newest version of its flagship terminal operating system (TOS) with upgraded product facilities and expanded capabilities.
According to a statement, the upgrade will continue to enhance Navis’ core TOS functionality to meet the critical needs of its manual, semi-automated and fully automated terminal customers.
Navis goes on to say that the N4 upgrade comes with expanded general cargo capabilities, which will allow customers to utilize a single platform for all cargo handled. This will also provide the foundations to increase velocity, safety and volume at terminals.

Furthermore, it will also include extensive rail enhancements, which offer greater options and operational efficiencies by speeding up the transfer of intermodal containers between vessels and the trains that carry them out of the port.
As well as that, Navis also says the upgraded N4 will enable terminals to realize the real value of automation, with its BI Portal Analytics and Ops Monitoring dashboards being redesigned to better operational insights.
Speaking about the announcement, Younus Aftab, Chief Technology Officer, Navis, said: “As our customers continue to grow their terminal business, meeting the demands of scaled operations is a top priority.
“We’ve made significant investments in optimizing our solutions to support increasing terminal throughput and these valuable additions and enhancements make N4, the world’s leading TOS, even better.
“This upgrade reflects the feedback of hundreds of customers currently operating on N4 and we built 3.7 with the goal of helping our customers make strides in their business – whether they are a greenfield site, fully automated or anywhere in between.”
