APM Terminals have
successfully completed the latest implementation of Navis N4 within its network
of terminals at the APMT Mumbai location.
The facility joins the more than 30 other APMT sites leveraging N4
Also known as
Gateway Terminals India (GTI), the facility joins the more than 30 other APMT
sites leveraging N4 as the standard Terminal Operations System (TOS) and with
the system in place, GTI is better equipped to provide significant enhancements
in the interactive tools available to its customers while simultaneously
driving efficiencies, according to an announcement.
between APM Terminals and Navis resulted in a virtually trouble-free
implementation that will elevate our Mumbai terminal,” said Patrick Heilig,
head of TOS at APMT, who believes that the adoption of TOS GTI will enable
"the sharing of best practices for improved efficiency; a foundation for
deploying Navis’ advanced modules such as PrimeRoute; the development of
in-house expertise that understands our customers and our business; centralized
monitoring and support; and faster, cost-effective global development of
front-end applications for customers."
GTI Mumbai is India's busiest container terminal, handling more than 2
million TEU annually
Located in the
Nhava Sheva's Jawaharlal Nehru Port, across the bay of Mumbai, GTI Mumbai is
India's busiest container terminal, handling more than 2 million TEU annually,
while the implementation of N4 will create better visibility and data exchange.
implementation of N4 will enable a host of improved interfaces to help
customers better engage with the terminal – including greater visibility into
container tracking as well as truck turn times to enable better planning for
container pick-up/drop-off," explains Navis. GTI Mumbai will also have the
ability to share its data at the container level, via its Application
Programming Interface (API) products, providing live information feeds to
customers to support improved, real-time decision making.
Navis TOS will give APMT Mumbai advanced global monitoring. N4 will also be
integrated as part of an advanced, global application monitoring solution that
is being rolled out across all of APMT’s locations. Capable of monitoring
end-to-end performance, the solution can spot issues with performance before
they start to negatively impact operations, according to a statement.
claimed Navis, business continuity, improves terminal efficiency, and
safeguards consistency (peak moves per hour) by ensuring that applications
consistently operate at the speed they’re supposed to, while it will also
prevent minor problems from combining to cause a major outage.
limitations brought on by the pandemic, APMT has not wavered in its commitment
to roll out N4 to all of its terminals globally, with the goal of having one
standardised TOS by the end of 2021,” noted Charles Gerard, general manager,
APAC, at Navis
