Modern Terminals Limited has concluded its upgrade of Navis’ N4 Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay, China.

Navis N4 was chosen by Modern Terminals for the enhancement of terminal operations with an aim to deliver ‘high quality’ services to clients.

In 1972, Modern Terminals unveiled Hong Kong’s first purpose-built container-handling facility.

Currently, the firm owns and runs container terminals at Kwai Tsing Container Port in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay Terminals in the Pearl River Delta.

Equipped with 42 quay cranes and 146 rubber-tyred gantry cranes, these ports manage more than 6.5 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) annually.

The companies worked together to bring the terminals online with a modernised solution to assists its operations.

Navis’ Professional Services team provided support remotely due to Covid-19-induced travel curbs.

Modern Terminals chief innovation officer Michael Yip said: “Our TOS is one of the keys to delivering high levels of productivity and efficiency in our operations.

“With the updated system in place, we are well-positioned to not only meet the needs of our shipping line customers today but also support our future plans to bring in more digital initiatives to our terminals in Hong Kong and DaChan Bay.”

Navis Asia-Pacific vice-president and general manager David Houser added: “During a high stakes environment for the global supply chain industry, we are thrilled to work together with the Modern Terminals team to further advance its terminal operations and reach its business goals with the latest version of N4.

“With our intelligent TOS connecting the dots throughout the terminals, Modern Terminals has all the data it needs at its fingertips to make real-time business decisions; building its reputation as a reliable gateway to keep cargo flowing smoothly in the region.”

Last week, APM Terminals Valencia completed the installation of Navis N4 as its new TOS.
