Socar Terminal has upgraded to Navis’ N4 3.7 terminal operating system (TOS) as part of plans to digitise and modernise its operations.
As the largest container terminal in Turkey’s Aegean region, Socar handles both container and project cargo with a capacity of 1.5m teu annually.
Upgrading its TOS to N4 is part of the Socar’s plan to become the most state-of-the-art terminal with the highest productivity in the region, as well as to improve its performance and optimise operating costs.
Arcan Fayatorbay, COO of Socar Terminal, said: “Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the N4 upgrade was successfully completed semi-remotely at Socar Terminal as a result of the hard work and dedication of both the Navis and Socar Terminal teams.
“We are glad that Navis was able to help facilitate our upgrade, even in these uncertain times, so we could offer existing and potential customers the most innovative technology and service at our terminal.”
Jacques Marchetti, general manager, EMEA, at Navis said: “We realise the flow of trade is more important than ever and know its critical to our customers that their business is able to continue to flourish especially during these times.
“By providing top-of-the-line technology through our TOS, we are able to help our customers increase efficiency and keep them on track to meet their business goals with no disruptions.”
