Navis tech enhances Yilport terminal in Ecuador

Navis announced that Puerto Bolivar Terminal, operated by YILPORT, went live with Navis 3.7. The Navis project was part of a full terminal modernisation effort to help take them from a manual terminal down a path of implementing more automated and data-driven services to increase terminal capacity and strengthen the terminal’s operational performance.

In an effort to increase the terminal's scale and for it to operate at its full potential, the YILPORT team has put an emphasis on bringing in technology that will improve its service and offerings including a recent investment in a new fleet of ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, electrified rubber tired gantry cranes (E-RTG) from Mitsui, and now the N4 Navis terminal operating system (TOS) with enhanced features including the Compass Visual Workflow Management Application.

"With the help of their in-house and local implementation teams, YILPORT was able to successfully go-live with N4 at the end of October 2019," Navis says in its announcement.

“Before we made steps toward applying automated services at Puerto Bolivar, we were using outdated systems for tracking and reporting our terminal operations thus, they were not being recorded in real-time,” said Orkun Cakir, TOS Deployment Manager at YILPORT. “With the help of our diligent teams on-site we were able to implement N4 and supporting Navis features, to bring more value to our customers in the new year and beyond.”

Along with N4 3.7, Compass, Crane Team User Interface, Expert Decking and Autostow will also be used at YILPORT Puerto Bolivar to help meet their business goals and streamline service.

“We are always looking for ways we can help our customers improve their processes and digitise their offerings to keep a competitive edge in the industry,” said Susan Gardner VP & General Manager, Americas.
