Navis has announced a new licensing agreement to implement its N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at the Trieste Marine Terminal (TMT), Italy.
The terminal, which is located at the Port of Trieste in northern Italy, selected the company’s N4 TOS as part of a series of efforts to improve and modernise its cargo handling processes by optimising its operational cycle and lower costs.
The implementation process will be managed by Swiss-based Navis’s partner Data and System Planning (DSP).
The company, which is working directly with TMT using Navis’ methodology and project management tools, will provide configuration, testing, report and field extensions, and go-live support services, including customised training courses.
TMT will also implement Navis’ advanced applications Expert Decking, Prime Route and Autostow to help improve productivity.
The terminal anticipates a 10-15% growth over the next five years.
Roberto Menis, terminal manager at TMT, said in a statement: “Here at TMT, we are actively tackling all organisational and operational methods so that we can improve and modernise our cargo handling processes.”
“We believe that innovation and automation are key to maintaining a high level of productivity,” he added. “Therefore, introducing more and more sophisticated technology and equipment is an absolute requirement.”
