Navis Announces Partnership with Gdansk

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

Navis, a division of Cargotec Corporation, has announced that Deep Water Container Terminal (DCT) Gdansk in Poland is implementing Navis SPARCS N4. The terminal operating system (TOS), scheduled to go live in the fourth quarter of 2011, should allow DCT Gdansk to support rapid terminal development plans, including increasing container volumes to one million twenty foot equivalent units (TEUs) in 2012. Having moved more than 450,000 TEUs in 2010, the terminal plans to increase this to 1.4 million TEUs by 2015 and has potential for up to four million TEUs with future planned development phases. SPARCS N4 will allow DCT Gdansk to support planning and equipment control operations with increased throughput and multiple vessel berthing.
“We chose Navis because of its proven track record providing reliable and innovative solutions to world class terminals, and our continued plans for rapid expansion and resulting evolution of the Baltic shipping market require that expertise,” said Boris Wenzel, CEO at DCT Gdansk. “The easy configuration and scalability of SPARCS N4 supports our efforts to increase efficiencies, optimize processes and manage costs as we bring Polish terminal operations to the best worldwide standards.”
“We are pleased to provide a solution that is able to grow with DCT Gdansk’s operations,” said Bill Walsh, president and CEO of Navis, LLC. “DCT Gdansk is an obvious leader in the region providing their customers with highly efficient operations. Navis SPARCS N4 will play an integral part of DCT Gdansk operations as they grow. We have created an advanced, innovative and flexible technology that allows our customers to optimize operations as their business needs change.”
