Navis has signed a new licensing agreement with Chile's Terminal Puerto Arica (TPA) to upgrade the port's current operating system.

The deal will see Navis implement its N4 terminal operating software at TPA, which currently handles 220,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers, bulk and break bulk cargo per year and mainly supports the trade industries of Bolivia, Chile and Peru.

The implementation of Navis' system will allow TPA to improve its operations in various ways, including crane performance speed and a reduction of time per transaction at the gate, as well as management of the yard and better optimisation of resources management, among others.

TPA is also set to employ Navis’ expert decking and autostow optimisation modules to meet its primary objective of improving productivity and customer service.

"TPA is one of the most innovative terminals in Latin America, and as such they understand the benefit of embracing technological advancement to modernise operations."

Navis Americas vice-president and general manager Chuck Schneider said: “TPA is one of the most innovative terminals in Latin America, and as such they understand the benefit of embracing technological advancement to modernise operations, as it directly impacts their ability to compete in a crowded and evolving marketplace.

“Unlike many of their industry peers, TPA is committed to tackling their operational challenges head on with the help of sophisticated technology to maintain the highest levels of productivity and support their overall growth objectives.”
