Port of Belize agrees Octopi deal

The Port of Belize has agreed a new deal with Octopi, a Navis subsidiary, to implement the Octopi terminal operating system (TOS) as part of a larger effort to modernise operations at the terminal in line with international best practices.

Located in Belize City, the Port of Belize currently operates at 45,000 TEU annually, focusing primarily on container and CFS operations but also handling a significant volume of liquid and dry bulk cargo.

The Octopi TOS will function as a hub for all of the port’s operational and transactional activities going forward, and will also be used to capture and collate operational data within the Cloud-based platform.

“The Port of Belize has been growing and evolving rapidly over the last several years and we have been working to identify the best tools for continuing the terminal’s development,” said Arturo Vasquez, CEO at Port of Belize.

“Octopi’s centralised platform will help integrate our operations and provide a single source of truth for the entire terminal, helping us make smarter business decisions faster than ever before.”
