Oakland, Calif.—Feb. 7, 2014—Navis, a global technology provider for managing the movement of cargo through terminals, announced that Kerry Siam Seaport (KSSP), a multi-purpose deep seaport located at the eastern seaboard gateway of Thailand, successfully completed its migration from SPARCS Express to N4. This implementation is an important step in optimizing and improving overall terminal effectiveness to support scalability.
“We believe that the container terminal business will be the key to our growth and success over the next few years,” said Arnajak Thangsathityangkul, general manager of the container terminal business, KSSP. “In order to best support our business and growth initiatives, we had to examine the technology used at the terminal, and invest in the most trusted and effective information technology (IT) systems. This resulted in our migration to N4. As part of the upgrade, we were able to complete extensive testing to reduce the potential for downtime in the terminal and ensure that our operations staff was properly trained.”
As the largest multi-purpose port in Thailand and the gateway port to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), KSSP provides wide berth docking, container operations and warehouse storage in one location. The port terminal serves as an all-in-one logistics center for an import-export global gateway for land-sea and over-rivers supply chain functions.
The upgrade to N4 includes billing and general cargo functionality, as well as the benefit of Navis’ optimization modules, PrimeRoute and Autostow. PrimeRoute enables real-time routing, dispatching, and monitoring of straddle carriers, terminal tractors and other transportation vehicles. Autostow generates stow plans for the entire ship or by specific bay in compliance with vessel planning stowage strategy.
N4 is Navis’ modern technology platform that optimizes operational efficiency and powers the intelligent movement of goods through container terminals worldwide. N4 allows customers the flexibility and scalability they need to run their operations, from a single terminal to multiple terminals across multiple geographic locations all within a single instance.
