Prior implementation of the new TOS, which replaces the terminal operator’s own legacy TOS, the new system underwent rigorous and extensive testing and training, including the need for a change to management exercises.
Future implementation of the Navis system will now take place at other Modern Terminals’ sites, including its larger second site in Hong Kong, which is scheduled to ‘go-live’ in mid-2014.
The N4 implementation will enable Modern Terminals to automate and standardise operational processes, including its equipment and yard operations. In addition, the project includes the integration and upgrade of other existing systems that support the gate, customs clearance, billing and the customer portal.
“We are confident that the implementation of the Navis TOS in Da Chan Bay and then Hong Kong over the next six months will be seamless. We’ll be able to enhance our operational processes with the most advanced technology available, ultimately improving overall performance to port calls in Hong Kong,” said Anders Dommestrup, COO, Modern Terminals.
N4 is the latest generation TOS from Navis, allowing customers the flexibility and scalability needed to run their operations, from a single terminal to multiple terminals spanning numerous geographic locations managed from one central location.
