Navis has announced that Paraguay’s Terminales Portuarias S.A. (TERPORT), has chosen to implement its N4 terminal operating system (TOS).
As part of this implementation, TERPORT will utilise Navis’ Expert Decking module, a comprehensive yard allocation optimisation tool that facilitates real-time, accurate and optimised stowage of containers in the yard. This will ensure that terminal operators can focus on bigger picture yard management – making it easier to increase yard capacity and optimize operations.
The terminal is scheduled to go live with the Navis TOS scheduled in September this year.
“The TERPORT board is confident that Navis N4 will help us to efficiently manage our growth while minimising our yard moves, improving communications with vessel operators and shipping lines, and automating processes,” said Ricardo Dos Santos, general manager, TERPORT.
TERPORT, located in the City of San Antonio, a few kilometres south of Asuncion, at the heart of the Paraguay-Parana Waterway. TERPORT will be the first terminal on the Paraguay River to go-live with N4.
TERPORT anticipates more than 10 percent annual growth in the next few years. In order to manage this growth, it is imperative for the terminal to optimise its processes and technology. This includes a commitment to transparent operations and increased efficiency that will directly translate to overall cost reductions.
“Our N4 implementation and partnership with Navis is an investment in our operational infrastructure and the future success of our terminal,” added TERPORT operations manager, Bernd Gunther.
“We are aware that flexibility and responsiveness are key for success in our business environment and that’s why it’s clear for us that Navis N4 is the way to go.”
