India-based operator Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) has selected Navis’ SPARCS N4 solution to update the terminal operating system (TOS) of its Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal (JNPCT) in Maharashtra.
JNPT’s existing TOS at JNPCT has been replaced with the N4 platform as part of the refurbishment initiative.
The upgrade is expected to optimise the terminal’s operational cycle, as well as increase production and other efficiencies.
Navis’ parent company Cargotec is expected to manage the implementation of N4 platform at JNPCT.
Navis’ methodology and project management tools will also be used in the process.
Additionally, Cargotec intends to provide configuration, testing, report and field extensions and go-live support services such as training courses to ensure the N4 solution’s smooth and quick operation.
JNPT, which forms part of the Government of India’s Ministry of Shipping, said in a statement: “The JNPCT has taken a number of initiatives for faster and economical operations along with automation that has helped in streamlining the processes and helping in reduction of cost, time and documents and thus making it easier for clients and partners to do business with them.
“The decision of migration to Navis N4 TOS solution is one of the steps towards achieving the objective.”
JNPT was estimated to handle around 55% of India’s containerised cargo as of July.
