Navis TOS Passes the Century Milestone

Press Release
Thursday, February 14, 2013

Navis SPARCS N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS) reaches critical milestone with 100 terminals globally.
 
Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation and the global technology standard for managing the movement of cargo through terminals, has reached a critical milestone as more than 100 of the world’s leading terminals have named Navis SPARCS N4 as their official terminal operating system (TOS) of record. To date, 107 sites in 47 countries have committed to the SPARCS N4 terminal operating system, 63 of which are currently live.

“In just a few short years, SPARCS N4 has evolved from a ‘nice to have’ technology platform, to one that is essential for remaining operationally agile, profitable and successful in this highly competitive marketplace,” said Bill Walsh, president and CEO of Navis. “For terminals that are live on SPARCS N4, the benefits are clear. The increase in flexibility, customization and automation capabilities enable our customers to provide the best possible service to their clients.”

With 25 years of experience in the marine shipping industry, Navis has developed long-standing and trusted relationships with its customers, due in part to its commitment to innovate its TOS technology as terminal needs evolve. As a result, a growing number of existing Navis customers, such as New Zealand’s Port of Tauranga, are making the strategic decision to upgrade to SPARCS N4.

Another significant driver for the global adoption of SPARCS N4 is the ability for terminal operators to use the software to manage multiple sites from a central location. Navis customers such as Transnet Port Terminals (TPT) and Haifa Port, Israel’s main maritime gateway, are currently doing so with SPARCS N4, and are seeing significant benefits as a result.

SPARCS N4 is Navis’ latest generation TOS, allowing customers the flexibility and scalability needed to run their operations at the lowest possible total cost of ownership – from a single terminal to multiple terminals across different geographic locations managed from one central location.
