Navis to optimise SAGT’s operations

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, and South Asia Gateway Terminals (SAGT) have announced an agreement to utilise Navis optimisation and analytics services to help the terminal prepare for further growth.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The agreement will enable the SAGT to get even more from Navis N4 to automate and optimise key components of their operations. SAGT, which is located at Port of Colombo in Sri Lanka, links the Far East with Africa, Europe, and the East Coast of the US, providing connections to the trade in the Indian sub-continent.

SAGT has been running Navis solutions for around 20 years. At the end of 2018, the terminal recorded two million TEUs with original design capacity of 1.1 million TEU capacity. Elements of the improvement program with Navis Services include yard strategy improvement, terminal truck optimisation, ITT optimisation and control room optimisation, all supported by KPI measurement and analytics using the Navis BI Portal.

“We are very pleased to be expanding our relationship with Navis to engage in value-added optimisation services that go well beyond initial implementation,” said Romesh David, CEO, SAGT. “We have grown a successful business alongside Navis and look forward to continuing to work with them to drive efficiencies, analyse performance and ultimately deliver even better customer service.”

“Our ongoing partnership with the SAGT is a testament to the terminal’s commitment to continued excellence and innovation as a strategic Asian port,” said Bruce Jacquemard, chief customer officer, Navis. “SAGT realises the value of getting the most out of operations and analytics through our optimisation services and sees the long term opportunity to attract more customers and deliver superior service to a growing volume of top-tier carrier business. We look forward to extending our long relationship with SAGT.”{/mprestriction}
