Uruguayan box terminal chooses Navis TOS

The supply chain technology provider Navis has announced that Terminal Cuenca del Plata (TCP) in Uruguay has signed a subscription agreement for its N4 SaaS offering.

The implementation of N4 SaaS, along with several optimisation solutions, will increase efficiency and enhance TCP’s overall operations, reaching new standards and allowing scalability as the terminal undergoes a landmark expansion plan, according to Navis.

TCP, owned by the Antwerp-based terminal operator Katoen Natie, is situated on the coast of Uruguay in Montevideo and serves as a regional hub for cargo originating in Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Southern Brazil, currently moving over 500,000 TEU.

TCP and the Port Authority of Uruguay have recently announced a US$450 million investment, which will include the construction of a second container yard and quay wall, increasing the capacity to more than 2.75 million TEU per year, almost three times its current capacity.

"Our terminal will be state-of-the-art when our expansion project is complete and we need our operations to function on a level that matches that," pointed out Vincent Vandecauter, CEO of TCP.

"Partnering with Navis will ensure that we’re growing our operations at scale while also being future-thinking by implementing cloud solutions that will help to carry us into the next phase of our terminal operations," he added.

In preparation for this milestone expansion, TCP signed an N4 SaaS subscription agreement to implement N4, including Navis’ Optimization modules - Expert Decking, PrimeRoute and Vessel Autostow - as well as N4 Billing, and Navis Smart Applications such as OpsView and Berth Window Management.

The terminal also signed on for Navis Managed Services, including managed upgrades, application and electronic data interchange (EDI) maintenance. Under the comprehensive SaaS umbrella, TCP will have access to all the capabilities of N4 without the associated costs and complexities of deploying, maintaining and managing it. In addition to tapping into Navis’ expertise via Managed Services, Navis will also host the system and deliver a production and test environment as well as a cloud-to-cloud disaster recovery solution.

"TCP is undergoing an important expansion plan and therefore is searching for a new TOS (Terminal Operating System) that could enhance their overall operations and reach new standards,” said Kim Kuesel, vice president and general manager of the Americas at Navis, adding that "a subscription model will allow them to implement what is needed now with the possibility of scaling up as expansion plans come to fruition, future-proofing operations as new N4 versions are rolled out."
