YILPORT Implements Navis N4 3.7 at Puerto Bolivar Terminal

January 22, 2020 GMT

OAKLAND, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 22, 2020--

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, and the provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading organizations across the shipping supply chain, announced that Puerto Bolivar Terminal, operated by YILPORT, went live with Navis 3.7. The Navis project was part of a full terminal modernization effort to help take them from a manual terminal down a path of implementing more automated and data-driven services to increase terminal capacity and strengthen the terminal’s operational performance.

Located in Ecuador, YILPORT Puerto Bolivar handles over 150,000 TEU and one million tons of break bulk annually and has been growing steadily over the past several years. To help the terminal scale and operate at its full potential, the YILPORT team has put an emphasis on bringing in technology to improve its service and offerings including a recent investment in a new fleet of ship-to-shore (STS), electrified rubber tired gantry (E-RTG) from Mitsui, and now N4 with enhanced features including Compass. With the help of their in-house and local implementation teams, YILPORT was able to successfully go-live with N4 at the end of October 2019.

“Before we made steps toward applying automated services at Puerto Bolivar, we were using outdated systems for tracking and reporting our terminal operations thus, they were not being recorded in real-time,” said Orkun Cakir, TOS Deployment Manager at YILPORT. “With the help of our diligent teams on-site we were able to implement N4 and supporting Navis features, to bring more value to our customers in the new year and beyond.”

Along with N4 3.7, the Compass Visual Workflow Management Application, Crane Team User Interface, Expert Decking and Autostow will also be used at YILPORT Puerto Bolivar to help meet their business goals and streamline service.

“We are always looking for ways we can help our customers improve their processes and digitize their offerings to keep a competitive edge in the industry,” said Chuck Schneider, Chief Customer Officer at Navis. “Data and analytics have become increasingly important for efficient decision making and we are thrilled to be working with YILPORT Puerto Bolivar to help bring their terminal into their next phase.”
