Global Container Terminals (GCT) Vanterm has gone live with Navis N4 terminal operating system (TOS) via remote assistance, making it the fourth and final GCT location to go-live with N4 in North America.
Located in the inner harbour of the Port of Vancouver, GCT Vanterm operates in naturally occurring deep water and is considered the most productive terminal at the Canadian port.
With strategic plans to modernise operations and increase capacity at the terminal by 25 percent in the near-term, GCT has choosen N4 for its Vanterm facility to help achieve its business goals with a more contemporary TOS, according to a company announcement.
“With GCT Vanterm’s upgrade to Navis N4, we are ensuring that our customers have access to best-in-class service, consistency and visibility across all four terminals GCT operates,” said Erik Ward, the chief information officer at GCT.
The N4 go-live was part of GCT Vanterm’s US$160 million modernisation and densification project to implement more technologically advanced solutions, increase capacity within the terminal’s existing footprint, create jobs in the region and reduce greenhouse gas emissions at its location.
