Navis is looking to the future to ensure container terminals are 'big ship' ready in advance of the arrival of 25,000 teu vessels.

Craig Halford, regional sales manager for Navis, told delegates at the 3rd Black Sea Ports and Shipping 2014 Conference, that the software specialist spends 31% of its revenue on research and development. "We have a special department at Navis that is focussed on the arrival of the 18,000 teu and 25,000 teu ships, looking at how their arrival will affect vessel planning and practices," he said.

Navis has employed cutting-edge technologies to aid its future planning investigations. These include working with Google Glass, a type of wearable technology with an optical head-mounted display.

"We have studied to see if that is a possibility in a container yard," confirmed Mr Halford. "So you could potentially walk down the yard and see a ship and know how may trucks are waiting load, all through the display in the headset."

Mr Halford also took the opportunity to press home the importance of TOS choice. "Most people don't focus on the software, but choosing your TOS Is mission critical," he said.
