Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, and provider of operational technologies, today announced that The Port of Virginia successfully went live at Norfolk International Terminals (NIT) on June 20 with the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS). The implementation of N4 took place with no major disruptions to NIT’s operations.

NIT is a key terminal at The Port of Virginia, a growing, deepwater container port on the U.S. East Coast that is capable of handling the largest vessels afloat. The port’s decision to upgrade its TOS was fueled by its need for a modern technology infrastructure that will efficiently service those vessels and their accompanying cargo volumes. The N4 upgrade will operate in unison with a program of long-term capital upgrades at NIT.

“As volumes increase, we must have technology solutions in place that can help us plan, manage and forecast operational needs,” said John F. Reinhart, CEO and executive director of the Virginia Port Authority. “When compared with the current terminal operating system, N4 will provide some very real advantages.  It replaces a 25-year-old legacy system and operationally speaking, N4 will provide real-time visibility across all areas of the operation with short- and long-term planning capability with the flexibility to customize features as demand creates.”

For more than two years, the port’s N4 team planned, trained and tested the system in close collaboration with a Navis Professional Services team to insure work in all areas of the operation run smoothly. 

“TOS implementations are complex and require close collaboration between Navis and our customers. As always, we worked closely with the NIT team to achieve optimal TOS functionality without compromising on operations and productivity,” said Chuck Schneider, Regional General Manager at Navis. “Needless to say, the partnership will continue beyond this process as we work with The Port of Virginia to ensure that N4 delivers on the promise of improved optimization, efficiency and productivity for NIT’s operations.”
