Navis launches smart tech to optimise planning and visibility

Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation has unveiled, ‘Navis Smart,’ a technology that provides new ways to capture, process, and standardise data to optimise planning, visibility and asset utilisation.

Navis Smart connects Navis solutions, applications and data from the ocean carrier and terminal side of the portfolio. The technology captures and standardises data and improves real-time visibility from various segments of an operation, providing a foundation to apply machine learning to Navis applications.

Two applications built with Navis Smart include:

Compass – the first step to consolidate many different planning phases into a more concise and intelligent planning process. “Compass provides an end-to-end view of the vessel planning process, standardising the execution for vessel visits and matching performance against KPIs,” said Patrick Brehmer, senior product manager, NavisLabs. “It will help terminal teams, EDI clerks, vessel planners, planning managers and operations managers be on the same page and avoid costly errors.” Compass is one of the first in a series of applications deployable on-premise or in the cloud and represents one of the first Navis Smart services bringing improved visibility and workflow to a traditionally siloed set of processes.

N4 Ops Monitoring – provides real-time business intelligence for operations monitoring. “To make critical decisions in real-time, operations managers need visibility into operational events as they happen to make decisions and take action on the spot, to handle exceptions and to improve productivity while saving time and cost,” said Manoj Bhardwaj, director of BI Solutions, Navis.

“The industry has had many waves of innovation driven by standardisation of the container up to the most recent automation and electrification of container handling machinery,” said Younus Aftab, chief product officer at Navis. “In today’s digital economy, where data is more valuable than ever, we see smart applications leveraging data across multiple existing systems. The emergence of these smart applications will revolutionise the way terminals and carriers manage their operations. Smart applications that utilise this untapped data will drive the next wave of innovation and new opportunities for progressive improvements in asset utilisation and operational performance. We’re excited to bring Navis Smart to market as we continue to provide our clients with solutions that continuously learn and improve to meet their daily needs.”
