Terminal operator YILPORT reports that it has completed the implementation of the Navis Compass software system at five terminals, following a pilot programme that began in May of last year.
After trialling the Compass application at terminals already using the Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS), YILPORT made the decision to implement the application more widely to improve its data sharing and communication capabilities, and to support remote operations for its global teams.
“As a pilot partner for Navis Compass, we worked closely with the Navis team to give feedback on the solution and help shape it for optimal terminal planning and execution processes,” said Cem Goktaş, Global Operations Director, YILPORT.
“Now all users, regardless of where they are located, can see all information regarding upcoming vessel visits to know exactly what tasks need to be done and who is working on them, saving us time, money and reducing the risk of human error.”
YILPORT currently operates 22 marine ports and terminals globally, handling 12 million container TEUs and 22 million tons of general and dry bulk cargo annually. The company established a Global Logistics Center (GLC) in 2015, to provide centralised services across its international terminals, with the new software expected to provide support for real-time data sharing across its terminal network.
The YILPORT operations, customer service, data management and planning departments will use the Compass application to standardise planning and execution processes, and will apply its automated functions to assist in managing several terminals at once.
