JNPCT commences migration to new Terminal Operating System

The Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal (JNPCT) has commenced migrating its Terminal Operating System (TOS) to Navisí SPARCS N4 Platform in an effort to improve productivity of the terminal.

The migration was inaugurated at a function in Mumbai on October 11 by the Chairman of the Port Anil Diggikar in the presence of Deputy Chairman Neeraj Bansal, Dr Chief Manager (Traffic) Unnikrishnan Nair, Deputy Conservator. Amit Kapoor, and JNPT officials, besides Ms See Jean Lau, Regional VP (Customer Experience) and other representatives from Navis. Representatives from the trade were also present.

Describing this as a revolutionary step, Mr Anil Diggikar, said the new system developed by Navis, a global leader in terminal operating systems, will significantly enhance the efficiency of JNPCT. It has been the Port's endeavour to continuously boost infrastructure in order to facilitate ease of doing business, which includes digitisation, he added.

Technology is a strong facilitative tool and this most modern TOS will help JNPCT provide further value to the trade, said Mr Neeraj Bansal. He called upon the JNPT team handling the migration and operation to be focused and sought feedback from Navis officials on the process.

He reaffirmed JNPTís commitment to facilitate cost-competitiveness for the trade, so that Indiaís exports are competitive and imports cheaper. The trade was also asked to give feedback on the new system as it is implemented.

Ms See Jean Lau an official from Navis highlighted that Navis has over 330 TOS users worldwide, and that the company also works with carriers.

 Mr Unnikrishnan Nair of the Port's traffic head said that the digitisation initiative will facilitate JNPT being at par with the top international ports. He disclosed that 17 top employees from the Port have been trained for the migration. The exercise is expected to take place in less than a year. He complimented the port authorities for their leadership in facilitating and initiating this migration.

Capt. Umesh Grover and Capt. Ram Iyer, representing CFSAI and MANSA, respectively, lauded this initiative of JNPT. Capt. Grover said it was the right time to get the new system, with the mega fourth terminal set to become operational by the end of this year. Capt. Iyer described it as another landmark achievement by the Portís management team, adding that it will help move towards an integrated cargo community system.
