Intermodal port Savage has selected Octopi by Navis cloud-based TOS as the railport anticipates growth in operations following completion later in 2021.
Savage, based in Southern Idaho, is in development to become the state’s first intermodal port. The terminal is expected to be completed by mid-2021.
This year, Savage has entered into an agreement with Union Pacific Railroad to construct and operate Savage Railport.
The terminal will provide a more efficient, cost-effective and environmentally-friendly option for agriculture producers and shippers to transport their products to Northwest seaports for export to Asia and other major global markets, and is projected to nearly double its initial operational output by the end of this year,
Savage needed a TOS that would allow them to achieve their growth and business goals, and remain competitive with a cloud-based platform without the additional IT investment. Octopi will deliver tangible value that would positively impact the terminal’s operations.
Brig Skoy, Director of Business Development at Savage, said, ““Conducting terminal operations in a safe, reliable and efficient manner is critical to Savage executing on our mission and purpose.
“We believe Octopi provides a compelling platform that will deliver tangible value to this terminal’s overall productivity and augment growth for years to come.”
Martin Bardi, Vice President of Global Sales, Octopi by Navis, added, “We are thrilled that Savage has signed a subscription with Octopi by Navis to be the TOS behind its new operation, and we look forward to helping them achieve their business goals and provide the best output for their customers in the US and internationally once the terminal is complete this year.”
