Red Hook Terminals has subscribed for Octopi’s cloud-based terminal operating system (TOS) at its Newark, NJ and Brooklyn, NY locations.
The terminal operator, which will implement Octopi, part of Navis, at two of its terminals by 2021, is able to handle any size or type of cargo to serve beneficial cargo owners and shippers east and west of the Hudson River, as well as regions north and south.
To remain in the evolving industry, the company was looking to upgrade its TOS to a flexible system that would be able to be deployed with maximum value and little IT investment, increasing visibility, productivity and optimising terminal operations while maximising return on investment (ROI).
Tom Griffith, executive vice president of Red Hook Terminals, said: “By choosing Octopi’s cloud-based TOS, we will be able to easily transition to a more modern and comprehensive system, which will upgrade our offerings to benefit our business and customers.
“Octopi’s functionality and utilisation of real-time data will give us the tools and critical insights into our operation that will allow us to improve productivity and efficiency at our terminals.”
Martin Bardi, vice president of global sales, Octopi by Navis, stated: “With Octopi’s innovative TOS, we are able to provide a more affordable and nimble solution to help terminals reach their full business potential with enterprise-level functionality.”
