GCT Vanterm modernises with Navis N4 upgrade

Global Container Terminals (GCT) Vanterm has gone live with Navis N4 Terminal Operating System (TOS) via remote assistance.

GCT has selected Navis TOS for its Vancouver location after the announcement in late August for the N4 implementation at CGT New York Terminal.

Located in the inner harbour of the Port of Vancouver, GCT Vanterm operates in naturally occurring deep water and is considered the most productive terminal at the Canadian port.

With strategic plans to modernise operations and increase capacity at the terminal by 25% in the near-term, GCT has choosen N4 for its Vanterm facility to help achieve its business goals with a more contemporary TOS, according to a company announcement.

"With GCT Vanterm’s upgrade to Navis N4, we are ensuring that our customers have access to best-in-class service, consistency and visibility across all four terminals GCT operates," said Erik Ward, the Chief Information Officer at GCT.

The N4 go-live was part of GCT Vanterm’s US$160 million modernisation and densification project to implement more technologically advanced solutions, increase capacity within the terminal’s existing footprint, create jobs in the region and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at its location.

GCT Vanterm was also the final of four GCT operated terminals in North America to implement N4 on-site, which will help standardise operations and information technology infrastructure across the continent for better service to its customers.
