Punta Arenas migrates to digital terminal operating system

Ultraport’s Punta Arenas facility has gone live on a new digital terminal operating system (TOS) from Navis, using remote access technologies to get the implementation project finished on time despite travel restrictions.

Ultraport decided to implement the Octopi system from Navis as part of a technology investment programme to modernise its terminal operations.

Punta Arenas, which currently handles over 400,000 tons of cargo and 30,000 TEU annually, was previously performing on a manual system and needed to upgrade to digital to optimise workflows.

“We are very proud of the work both our team and the Octopi by Navis team have accomplished together to complete this project initiated earlier this year,” said Nelson Ojeda, Branch Manager at Ultraport Punta Arenas.

“We needed to upgrade our business practices and processes to prioritise safety and increase visibility for stakeholders to remain competitive. Octopi is helping us reach our goals while allowing us to provide the best service possible to our customers.”
