Navis and Tianjin Port to collaborate on Smart Port initiatives

Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with China-based Tianjin Port Group, currently the world’s largest terminal complex on the Navis N4 system, which will see the two companies join forces to accelerate technology innovation within Tianjin Port as it moves towards further automation of operations.

Work to be covered by the MOU include the development of a future Smart Port project as well as joint collaboration on technology adoption and service support. Tianjin Port Group already uses Navis’ N4 software system to move approximately 15 million TEU annually.

“We are extremely proud of our record-breaking N4 implementation. While many factors contributed to the project’s success, we recognized the powerful results that were achieved when Tianjin Port and Navis teams came together with a common goal in mind,” said Zhang Ruigang, Chairman of Tianjin Port Group.

“The MOU agreement signals our commitment to working with an industry leader like Navis to achieve rapid innovation and make our operational goals, including automation, a reality.”
