Navis, a part of Cargotec, has provided its N4 terminal operating system (TOS) to update the government-owned Port of Guam’s (PAG) existing system.
Operated by the Port Authority of Guam, the PAG has installed the new TOS as part of an ongoing modernisation programme at the port.
The new TOS is also expected to improve customer service, as well as reduce gate turnaround time and overall vessel and berth productivity.
The new cargo handling equipment, recently purchased by the PAG, has been integrated into the N4 TOS, alongside real-time container tracking, all electronic data interchange (EDI) capabilities, a community access portal, and integrated tariff and billing systems.
Serving the Pacific, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI), Palau, the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), and the Marshall Islands, PAG currently handles various types of cargo, including containers, breakbulk, bulk, and rollon / roll-off (RORO) operations.
Port Authority of Guam general manager Joanne Brown said: “During the last few years the Port Authority of Guam has aggressively implemented its Port Modernisation Programme.
“In collaboration with our federal, military and private sector partners, we have completed milestone projects never before seen in the Port’s history of existence, including the expanding of our container yard, the reconfiguring of our terminal gate and reducing turnaround for incoming and outgoing terminal traffic.
“The acquisition of Navis N4 has taken our organisation to another level. The implementation of the TOS will not only improve the port’s tariff / billing system but more importantly, it will result in a faster and more efficient movement of cargo to its final destination.”
Earlier this month, Khorgos Gateway Dry Port in Kazakhstan went live with Navis N4 TOS.
