TCP, a company responsible for managing the Paranaguá Container Terminal in Brazil, has implemented a new integrated port operation system as part of its growth plan to increase the terminal’s capacity from 1.5 million TEU to 2.5 million TEU by 2018. 

The investment for the overall system implementation reaches BRL 25 million (USD 7.2 million), according to terminal operating system provider Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation.

As part of the new system, the company has adopted Navis N4, which allows internal customization by the information technology team of TCP.

“In order for TCP to reach its substantial growth target, a system like N4 is critical to help drive new efficiencies and operational optimization needed to facilitate greater amounts of cargo at the terminal,” Martin Bardi, Senior Director, Latin America Field Operations, Navis, said.

Navis said that the migration to the new system is due to the evolution of the infrastructure and processes of the Paranaguá Container Terminal.

“With Navis, TCP will achieve improvements over the previous system, including optimizing yard management with the use of automated processes, promoting a more efficient allocation of trucks that transport the containers between the equipment and the ships, and better segregating containers in the yard,” Alexandre Rubio Teixeira Pinto, CFO of TCP, said.

The new system was implemented in early October and is already in operation, according to Navis.

With the TCP implementation, a total of 14 terminals in Brazil adopted Navis N4.
