age, Navis,
a part of Cargotec
, and the provider of operational technologies and
services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s
leading organizations across the shipping supply chain, today charted
its course for the Next Generation TOS.

With 350 container terminals around the world using Navis software, the
company’s extensive experience in building and implementing TOS
solutions brings distinct advantages as it partners with customers to
execute digital- and cloud-based initiatives. Navis seeks to further
improve and optimize planning, execution, visibility and ease of use for

terminals transform operations through improved functionality, smart
applications and a connected suite of solutions.

“As the proven industry leader in TOS, we are focused on continuing to
make terminal operations more intelligent and predictive for our
customers around the world,” said Andy Barrons, Chief Strategy Officer

    terminals can tap into the power of data in their own systems and gain
    greater insight into the larger supply chain and data flows,
    synchronizing with land and water-side operations
  • Control Room Transformation – A more intelligent, predictive
    and proactive process, leveraging Artificial Intelligence to free up
    people to focus on value adding and strategic tasks
  • Improved UI/UX – An easier to use and more intuitive interface
    will support cross-functional teams for each terminal
  • Multi-terminal Management Increased visibility and
    control for terminals operating in close proximity on one TOS for
    enhanced visibility and control
