Maher Terminals, a multi user container terminal operator, has completed the upgrade of its Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) from version N4 2.2 to N4 2.6, providing a faster and more reliable TOS platform.

Navis is a part of Cargotec and is the global technology standard for managing the movement of cargo through terminals, standing the test of time.

The upgrade to N4 2.6 allows Maher to have access to a new level of system stability and will help the company to build new terminal functionality and operational efficiencies.

"The N4 2.6 upgrade was a fundamental step forward for Maher Terminals."

With the upgrade, Maher Terminals has also been able to have a more efficient operating platform and a stronger base to build software solutions for terminal optimisation challenges.

Maher Terminals IT VP Laura Markham said: "The N4 2.6 upgrade was a fundamental step forward for Maher Terminals.

"N4 provides the foundation on which we can build out our software functions, and we are already seeing improving response times. We can now look forward to improved system efficiencies within our operations, which will position us to more effectively handle volume."

Located at the Port of New York / New Jersey, US, Maher Terminals is the largest marine container terminal complex in North America.

The testing, planning and preparation of the software upgrade was done on-site.

Navis was also involved during the upgrade process and helped to conduct thorough stress testing of the new system requirements before implementation.

In May this year, Navis stated that Baltic Container Terminal (BCT), part of Malta-based company Mariner Group, had gone live with Navis’ N4 version 3.1 terminal operating system.

BCT is the first terminal in the EMEA region to use the latest version of the terminal operating system developed by Navis, and the second in the world.
