Navis is helping existing and new customers optimise operations to improve productivity, increase capacity in the yard, handle more throughput and expedite the flow of containers and mixed cargo. With the Navis Cloud, analytics and AI applications can be integrated with the terminal operating system. This integration enables actionable insights and better decision making around container allocation in the yard, equipment utilisation, real time demand of the waterside and landside operations, and berth planning for continuous optimisation.
With growing industry interest in cloud services and with multiple deployment options available, Navis supports customers at any point in their cloud journey. The Navis Cloud will also play an important role in Navis making its solutions more modular, open and connected, with the goal of simplifying deployments and upgrades as well as making it easier for customers to integrate with other industry providers.
“Having multiple TOS deployment strategies will allow our customers to choose the option that best suits their business needs,” said Scott Holland, chief product officer, Navis. “A full SaaS environment is a great choice for customers that are positioned to take full advantage of our cloud capabilities with their high availability, automated upgrades and lower cost of ownership. A hybrid approach might be more effective for those customers who desire to keep mission critical components on-prem. Maintaining this optionality enables us to increase the pace of innovation while continuing to protect the mission critical nature of our customers' operations.”
“The pandemic has only served to highlight how fragile and interconnected the supply chain is, and as the global economy starts to rebound, it has become apparent that solving the lingering disruptions will be the linchpin in getting businesses and the broader economy back on solid footing,” said Andy Barrons, chief strategy officer, Navis. “With congestion, blockages and delays at every turn, the industry is in dire need of solutions that streamline and optimise operations to get cargo where it needs to go. The continued expansion of our TOS capabilities and cloud offerings are in direct response to this need, building on our trusted solutions, using data and AI, to offer our customers the insights needed to future proof their existing systems and resources.”
In the coming months Navis will reveal steps towards its next generation of software solutions including advancements in its terminal operating system and stowage planning platform, among others.
