Cargotec’s Navis has acquired privately-owned US company Cetus Labs, Inc. which provides cloud-based terminal operating system (TOS) Octopi for small container and mixed cargo terminals.

With the addition of Octopi to its software portfolio, Navis is better positioned to support thousands of smaller terminals around the world that want to modernise terminal operations, but lack the technology infrastructure and technical expertise required to support a full-scale Navis N4 TOS deployment.

"Our customers told us they need a lighter weight TOS solution to improve the planning and execution of operations for their smaller terminals, and to easily connect to the supply chain ecosystem,” said Benoit de la Tour, president of Navis.

"By joining forces with Octopi, Navis is answering the need to have more TOS options for both standalone small terminals, and those smaller or remote terminals that are part of a larger global terminal operator network. Offering a cloud-based TOS that is intuitive and quick to implement will enable us to serve an entirely new segment of the terminal market.

Launched in 2015, Octopi is a modern and lightweight, cloud-based TOS developed exclusively for small container and mixed cargo terminals. Currently in use at ten sites in seven countries, Octopi delivers a cost-effective and easy-to-use TOS solution that enables its customers to better manage their operations in vessel planning and yard management, track cargo and communicate electronically in real-time with their commercial ocean shipping partners.
