Ports America’s Napoleon Container Terminal, located in New Orleans, Louisiana, has implemented the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at its 47 acre site.
Keith Palmisano, general manager at the terminal, said: “Having N4 in place helps ensure we can effectively manage larger container volumes and meet the evolving demands of our global customer base.
“Thorough simulation and live testing of gate, yard and vessel processes prior to our go-live, was essential for ensuring the TOS would perform as designed from day one.”
The facility, which has an annual capacity of 350,000 teu, has also implemented the VoyagerTrack appointment system in a bid to meet the demands of customers including truckers, carriers and shippers.
The Ports America Gatehouse Complex and Terminal uses the latest optical character recognition (OCR) and radio frequency identification (RFID) systems at its sites.
Customers of Napoleon Container Terminal also have access to Ports America TOS Web Portal, which interfaces with the Navis N4 system to provide them with real-time information to track cargo from arrival to when it is available to be picked up, providing added visibility to customers.
