Haifa Port has completed its N4 terminal operating system (TOS) migration project with remote support from Navis.
The port, influenced by future growth expectations and a demand for new terminals, initiated a project to merge facilities that historically operated as independent operations into one integrated terminal with common equipment, processes and IT management.
Due to COVID-19, the Navis team was unable to be on site to complete the go-live however, with the support of both the Navis and Haifa Port teams, the project was able to be completed on schedule.
Oded Orr, project manager at Haifa Port Company, said: “These COVID-19 delays and restrictions will continue to dominate business over the next few months and beyond.
“We didn’t want COVID-19 to hold us back from our projects and plans, especially upgrades that can help make day-to-day activities at our site more efficient.”
Orr noted that since making the shift to N4 Haifa Port has seen “great results” and has been able to operate out of its new terminal successfully.
Jacquez Marchetti, general manager, EMEA at Navis, said: “Our job at Navis is to work with our customers to find solutions to help them optimise their business to help them reach their goals.
“After working with Haifa Port Company to help them complete their N4 integration project, they are now able to address current operational challenges and have a solution in place to help their business run efficiently as they scale.”
