Colombia’s SPRC and CONTECAR to install Navis’ N4 terminal operating system

Colombia-based container terminals Sociedad Portuaria Regional de Cartagena (SPRC) and Terminal de Contenedores de Cartagena (CONTECAR) have selected Navis’ N4 terminal operating system (TOS) to upgrade their existing systems.

Colombia-based container terminals Sociedad Portuaria Regional de Cartagena (SPRC) and Terminal de Contenedores de Cartagena (CONTECAR) have selected Navis’ N4 terminal operating system (TOS) to upgrade their existing systems.

Both the terminals are currently using Navis’ SPARCS TOS.

By upgrading their TOS, the terminals aim to improve their service reliability as well as provide better customer satisfaction, increase competitiveness and modernise their overall terminal operations.

"The interest in and adoption of N4 in the region has been tremendous."

Navis Latin America field operations vice-president Martin Bardi said: “Latin American container terminals face their own unique set of challenges related to ocean shipping, including the recent opening of the Panama Canal and the surge of cargo that will inevitably flow through the region as a result.

“In order to effectively service vessels, handle greater container volumes and maintain high customer service levels, technology becomes the only way to optimise operations in a way that makes these goals attainable.

“The interest in and adoption of N4 in the region has been tremendous and we are proud to partner with a growing number of forward-thinking terminals like SPRC and CONTECAR to ensure their future success.”

Around 60 Latin American terminals are currently using technology provided by Navis.

Recently, Chile’s port of San Antonio opened a new terminal, which will run on Navis’ TOS.

The new terminal will also use hardware supplied by Kalmar and Liebherr.
