Navis has announced a new N4 terminal operating system (TOS) licensing agreement with Italian terminal, Trieste Marine Terminal (TMT). TMT selected the Navis TOS to optimize the terminal’s operational cycle and lower costs.
The ultimate goal is to increase TMT’s efficiencies so customers can experience improved productivity.

Trieste Marine Terminal located in Trieste, Italy is the only specialized container terminal, providing unique services for container traffic that moves through the North Adriatic Sea. These services include professional port handling, storage, CFS activities and intermodal services. Due to its distinct geographic location, TMT serves as the most convenient and cost-effective gateway for traffic to flow to and from Central/Eastern Italy and Central/Eastern European countries. TMT is also connected to other Adriatic ports (i.e., Venice, Ravenna, Ancona and Rijeka), providing an additional route for shippers. TMT handles an annual TEU throughput of 450,000. The terminal anticipates a 10-15 percent growth over the next five years.

“Here at TMT, we are actively tackling all organizational and operational methods so that we can improve and modernize our cargo handling processes,” said Roberto Menis, Terminal Manager at TMT. “We believe that innovation and automation are key to maintaining a high level of productivity. Therefore, introducing more and more sophisticated technology and equipment is an absolute requirement. We selected N4 in order to remain competitive in the industry, and we are confident that its reliability will carry us forward as we evolve.”

The N4 implementation process will be managed by Swiss-based Navis partner Data and System Planning (DSP). DSP is working directly with TMT, utilizing Navis’ methodology and project management tools. DSP will provide configuration, testing, report and field extensions, go-live support services, including customized training courses so that their management and mid-management teams are up and running on N4 as quickly as possible.

TMT will also implement Navis advanced applications Expert Decking, Prime Route and Autostow to support their primary objective of improving productivity and level of service to its customers.
