Tuesday, March 11, 2014

Navis announced that following extensive testing, Global Terminal (Global) became the first facility in North America to successfully upgrade to the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) version 2.5 on March 3, 2014. Located in the Port of New York/New Jersey, the implementation supports the terminal’s semiautomation. Navis technology allows Global to increase capacity and productivity on the existing facility while minimizing environmental impact.

In November 2011, the terminal was the first facility to successfully deploy Navis N4 in North America. Serving the most concentrated and affluent market on the U.S. East Coast, the latest implementation is noteworthy as the company ensured there were no disruptions to customers and stakeholders.

Rich Ceci, Vice President of Information Technology for Global Container Terminals USA commented, “This technology platform significantly modernizes the facility, enabling the fastest processing and turnaround times in the harbor. The Navis team must be commended for their dedication in helping us achieve our goals.”

“TOS implementations can be highly complex and require close collaboration between Navis and the customers we serve. The extensive end-to-end testing was the key to the success of this N4 upgrade,” said Mike Medcalfe, Vice President, Professional Services for Navis. “We are committed to continue to work with the Global team to ensure that their investment in N4 delivers on the promise of improved optimization, efficiency and productivity for its terminal operations.”

This recent version of Navis N4 supports Global’s new state-of-the-art radio frequency identification (RFID) and optical character recognition (OCR) gate technologies commissioned last summer, as well as enables the commissioning of the 20-strong fleet of semi-automated rail mounted gantry (RMG) cranes. Both innovations raise the bar for safety standards in the New York harbor by ensuring truckers and the waterfront workforce remain out of harm’s way.

N4 is Navis’ latest generation TOS, allowing customers the flexibility and scalability to centrally manage single or multiple terminal operations, spanning numerous geographic locations.
