MBOX Terminals has signed a subscription agreement for Navis’ Octopi for its new intermodal terminal located in Nis, Serbia.
The terminal, which has become Octopi’s first customer in Europe, chose the cloud-based terminal operating system (TOS) for its modern, comprehensive solution that would help to optimise operations and increase visibility.
Dejan Nikolic, CEO of MBOX Terminals, said: “When we needed a TOS for our new intermodal terminal, we knew we would get the best results with Octopi by Navis due to their stellar reputation and proven track record in the industry.
“We are looking forward to implementing Octopi at MBOX Intermodal to help give us a competitive edge and achieve our goal of becoming the main point in container transportation in the region.”
As the first intermodal terminal in south and central Serbia, MBOX Terminals DOO offers direct access to regions of central and southern Serbia, western Bulgaria and the northern part of North Macedonia.
It had a capacity of 50,000 teu annually and aims to be the new gateway to the Serbian market and will open the door for new ports to the region via ocean and rail connections.
MBOX chose Octopi as it will help its team increase visibility of cargo movements for all carriers and other clients, with no additional IT investment.
DSP Data and System Planning, a certified partner for Navis, will design the Business Process Management to help contribute towards the start-up of operations at the new terminal.
Martin Bardi, vice president of global sales at Octopi by Navis, said: “As a result of the changing industry landscape, we are seeing more customers looking for cloud-based solutions to manage their operations.
“We are thrilled to be expanding our customer base to Europe and are eager to help MBOX Terminals reach their short and long-term business and operational goals with Octopi.”
