Container Terminal of Port of Durres installs Navis’ N4 software-as-a-service solution

Durrës, Albania (PortSEurope) August 9, 2021 – Durres Container Terminal has installed the Navis N4 SaaS from a manually-based system. The new technology will streamline day-to-day operations utilizing the Navis cloud solution. “Just months after Navis formally introduced our N4 SaaS offering, we are already seeing growing interest and clients reaping the tremendous benefits that moving their terminal operations to the Navis cloud can offer,”
said Jacques Marchetti, General Manager, EMEA, Navis. “In just three months, and without any additional investment in hardware or onsite expertise required, Mariner Adriatic was able to convert the terminal’s operations and make it one of the first sites operating N4 SaaS in the cloud. As a smaller terminal, playing a strategic role within the Mediterranean corridor shippers in an extended peak season coming out of the pandemic, it is critical that Durres Container Terminal has the ability to quickly adapt to fluctuations in cargo volumes. With the full suite of N4 functionality available in our cloud offering, the terminal now has the option to expand the system as both productivity and demand increase.” “The implementation of N4 SaaS is a significant advancement for Durres Container Terminal and one that we firmly believe will lead to improved efficiency across our operations, a more seamless exchange of information with key stakeholders and a broadened portfolio of services that we can offer our customers,” said Alket Malo, CFO of Durres Port Authority. “Beyond that, the additional layer of security afforded to us through cloud operations, along with increased visibility, transparency, and trackability of our operational processes, will be key to expediting law enforcement activities within the port. Navis’ partnership and established expertise in these areas gives us an added competitive advantage and will only serve to strengthen our position in the region.” Last month, Mariner Adriatic has won the tender for the management and operation of Durres Container Terminal in Albania. Mariner is a specialist investor, developer and operator of seaport container terminals. It is part of Hili Company, which also owns Baltic Container Terminal, which holds the concession for the leading container terminal in Riga, Latvia, and is a 50% partner in Terminal Intermodale Venezia with Mediterranean Shipping Company, which it operates in Venice, Italy. Durres is Albania’s primary seaport and the container terminal handles over 90% of the country’s container traffic. The port also serves as a port for neighbouring landlocked countries – including Kosovo, Serbia and North Macedonia. Navis is a provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading organizations across the cargo supply chain.
