Navis helps SAGT prepare for growth
Cargotec firm Navis and Sri Lanka’s South Asia Gateway Terminals (SAGT) have agreed a deal to use Navis optimisation and analytics services to help the terminal prepare for growth.
SAGT, a terminal located in Sri Lanka’s Port of Colombo, signed a strategic agreement with Navis that lets the facility automate and optimise, through Navis N4, key components of its operations.
SAGT has been running Navis solutions for around 20 years and is achieving strong productivity levels.
At the end of last year, the terminal recorded 2m teu with an original design capacity of 1.1m teu, and it thus requires further optimisation to handle growing volumes and business.
Elements of the improvement project with Navis Services include yard strategy-improvement, terminal truck-optimisation, ITT-optimisation and control room-optimisation, all supported by proper key performance indicator-measurement and analytics using the Navis BI Portal.
“We are very pleased to be expanding our relationship with Navis to engage in value-added optimisation services that go well beyond initial implementation,” said Romesh David, SAGT chief executive.
“We have grown a successful business alongside Navis and look forward to continuing to work with them to drive efficiencies, analyse performance and ultimately deliver even better customer service.”
“Our ongoing partnership with SAGT is a testament to the terminal’s commitment to continued excellence and innovation as a strategic Asian port,” said Bruce Jacquemard, chief customer officer at Navis.
“SAGT realises the value of getting the most out of operations and analytics through our optimisation services and sees the long-term opportunity to attract more customers and deliver superior service to a growing volume of top-tier carrier business.”
