Navis updates flagship Terminal Operating System

Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation, has released N4 3.7, the newest version of its flagship Terminal Operating System (TOS) with upgraded product features and expanded capabilities.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The upgrade provides increased visibility at multi-facility terminals and leverages operational intelligence to deliver better insights into manual, semi-automated and fully automated terminal customers.

N4 3.7 provides the following additional capabilities:

  • Expanded general cargo capabilities – now supports cargo appointments, cargo flex fields, direct load/unload, and many new gate business tasks that control cargo.
  • Extensive rail enhancements - enhancements to Rail AutoStow and RGC Scheduler help handle growing rail volume with less landside congestion, better crane driving visibility, and more efficient truck dispatching. With N4 3.7, Navis also supports curved rail tracks.
  • Improved efficiency and visibility for multi-facility terminals - the new Multi-facility Carrier Operations Option enables multi-facility complexes to divert vessels to other facilities, as well as view and plan vessel visits downstream.
  • Greater moves per hour: measuring moves per hour is the gold standard for evaluating the effectiveness of a TOS in managing quay crane operations. The N4 Automation solution has made significant strides, with some terminals improving MPH by 16 per cent in the past two years.
  • Strengthened Operational Insights: Navis’ BI Portal Analytics and Ops Monitoring dashboards have been enhanced to deliver better operational insights and tuned for better usability and performance.

“As our customers continue to grow their terminal business, meeting the demands of scaled operations is a top priority,” said Younus Aftab, chief technology officer, Navis. “We’ve made significant investments in optimising our solutions to support increasing terminal throughput and these valuable additions and enhancements make N4, the world’s leading TOS, even better. This upgrade reflects the feedback of hundreds of customers currently operating on N4 and we built 3.7 with the goal of helping our customers make strides in their business – whether they are a greenfield site, fully automated or anywhere in between.”{/mprestriction}
