The Port of Paita, operated by Terminales Portuarios Euroandinos (TPE), has gone live on the latest N4 terminal operating system (TOS) from Navis, following the completion of a software upgrade programme that forms part of a larger strategic plan for process automation at the port.
Paita introduced an earlier version of N4 in May 2017, used to reduce and improve traceability across the cargo lifecycle within the terminal. The new upgrade will allow TPE Paita to set new automation goals to support the growth of the Peruvian port as it expands its container handling capabilities.
The current modernisation plan features critical updates to both equipment and infrastructure, to make the facility as attractive as possible for foreign trade in the region.
“Since the original implementation of N4, TPE Paita has experienced much success in achieving our goals of updating and modernising our port to compete on the international stage,” said Eduardo Cerdeira, Operations Manager, TPE Paita.
“Having completed the construction of a new container yard, we were in need of a modern and high-functioning TOS capable of managing increasingly complex logistics at the port. N4 is the TOS of choice for terminals around the world to manage operations and the ability to absorb Navis’ experience and the benefits associated with having a tool built on international standards and best practices is a major factor in our decision to upgrade.”
