COSCO targets operational efficiency with Navis N4 TOS

APM Terminals Zeebrugge APM Terminals Zeebrugge was acquired last year by CSP, which manages berths at 38 ports worldwide

COSCO Shipping Ports (CSP) will use Navis’ N4 terminal operating system (TOS) to improve the efficiency of its port operations.

N4 is capable of being integrated, deployed and administered across multiple sites. It is designed to increase scalability by supporting future growth while reducing operational overheads; streamline terminal operations by keeping up with technology advances; simplify and accelerate implementation by focusing on a unified and integrated IT strategy and growth concept; and reduce administration and support costs by centralising back office administration.

Enhancing competitiveness

Speaking of the subscription agreement, Zhang Wei, vice chairman and managing director of CSP, said: “At CSP, we understand well that continuous improvement of the operating efficiency and sustainable development of the ports and terminals will further enhance our competitiveness.

“We are happy to work with Navis, with its unmatched experience in TOS and collaborative solutions and with N4 serving as the brain and localized source of information for the day-to-day operation of our terminal business, we are better equipped to meet the needs of today’s carriers and large container ships coming to call.”

Bigger contracts

Benoit de la Tour, president of Navis, said: “We are continuing on our path towards large, strategic agreements with the biggest global terminal operators and shipping lines in the world and this partnership with COSCO SHIPPING Ports is an opportunity for Navis to deliver its leading innovation and global optimization services to an expanding network of terminals.”

CSP operates and manages 269 berths at 38 ports worldwide, of which 179 are for containers, with a combined annual handling capacity of approximately 103m teu.
