Navis say that container terminal operators Modern Terminals Limited has gone live on the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at Da Chan Bay Terminal One (DCB), located in Shenzhen, China.
N4 is Navis’ latest generation TOS, allowing customers the flexibility and scalability needed to run their operations - from a single terminal to multiple terminals spanning numerous geographic locations managed from one central location.
The implementation of N4 enables Modern Terminals to automate and standardize operational processes, including equipment and yard operations, to ensure the best customer service offering that is aligned with the company’s brand promises. In addition to the Navis TOS, the project also included the integration and upgrade of other existing systems that support the gate, customs clearance, billing and customer portal.
DCB is one of the most recent container terminals built in Shenzhen to handle the largest carriers at the highest productivity and efficiency levels. Due to the successful partnership between the DCB and Navis implementation teams, future implementations at other Modern Terminals’ sites will have a proven template to achieve go-live success. Modern Terminals’ larger, second site in Hong Kong is scheduled to go-live with N4 in mid-2014, add Navis.
“For Modern Terminals to choose Navis instead of continuing with our own TOS IT platform – which has shaped our world class reputation and delivery over the last 40 years – is a testament to the confidence we have in N4,” said Anders Dommestrup, COO, Modern Terminals.
