Press Release
Tuesday, January 22, 2013

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation and the global technology standard for managing the movement of cargo through terminals, has announced that APM Terminals’ new state-of-the-art facility Maasvlakte II, located in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, has selected Navis SPARCS N4 as its terminal operating system (TOS) of record.

 

As part of the massive development project, APM Terminals Maasvlakte II will use SPARCS N4 to support critical operational productivity and efficiency with real-time execution systems at the terminal.


“APM Terminals Maasvlakte II is an example of what terminal operations will look like in the future—fully-automated, environmentally sustainable and able to receive the growing number of mega container ships entering the market,” said Bill Walsh, president and CEO, Navis. “We are proud that Navis SPARCS N4 was selected as the critical technology component for such a groundbreaking project in the marine terminal industry. We look forward to much success together during the current development phase and beyond.”


Upon completion, APM Terminals Maasvlakte II will operate as a 2.7 million TEU annual throughput capacity container terminal in the Port of Rotterdam. With plans to open in Q4 2014, APM Terminals Maasvlakte II will handle some of the world’s largest container ships as well as support APM Terminals’ Rotterdam facility, one of the largest in Europe. The facility’s use of innovative Lift Automated Guided Vehicles (Lift AGVs) is noted as a market distinction, and will deliver a variety of benefits including reduced emissions and noise levels, optimized fleet management and some of the most innovative safety systems available for terminal operators today.


To meet the terminal’s high demands, APM Terminals selected SPARCS N4 for the TOS due to its widespread use in the industry as well as Navis’ commitment to supporting automated processes and achieving high performance for the facility.


“We are pleased by Navis’ commitment to delivering the SPARCS N4 platform for what will be one of the most advanced automated terminals in the world today,” said Frank Tazelaar, Managing Director, APM Terminals Maasvlakte II. “We look forward to working together with Navis on a successful project to achieve the operational performance levels that we require.”


SPARCS 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.
