Octopi, part of Navis and Cargotec Corporation, a provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading organizations across the shipping supply chain, today announced a set of new features and updates for general and mixed cargo terminal operators.
In a statement, Octopi said some of the new features include expanded stripping and stuffing functionality, tallying capabilities, overland cargo tracking and new general cargo-focused key performance indicators (KPIs) for the Octopi Dashboard.
These new features are part of a broader effort to extend the benefits of Octopi’s world-class container shipping functionality to terminals managing other types of cargo.
“General cargo terminals are a key component of our current and future customer base and, with their feedback in hand, we are excited to expand our functionality to better address their business needs,” said Martin Bardi, VP of Global Sales at Octopi.
“This new feature set is a welcome addition to the Octopi platform and builds upon our already-robust container shipping terminal capabilities.”
Launched in 2015, Octopi is a modern and lightweight cloud-based TOS designed for small- and medium-sized container, general and mixed cargo terminals—replacing pen & paper, Excel and older TOS systems.
Octopi delivers a cost-effective and easy-to-use TOS solution with core planning and execution capabilities including EDI exchange, gate processing, general cargo capabilities, yard management, vessel planning and critical reporting and invoicing functions.
Additionally, the solution offers built-in business intelligence dashboards as well as general cargo capabilities.
