OAKLAND, Calif.–Montreal Gateway Terminals Partnership (MGT), a cargo container facility at the Port of Montreal, and Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation offering technology for managing the movement of cargo through terminals, have implemented the Navis N4 terminal operating system at MGT.
The implementation was a migration from Navis’ legacy software SPARCS and an internally developed data host system to N4, Navis’ latest generation terminal operating system. N4 allows customers to run their operations from a single terminal to multiple terminals spanning numerous geographic locations managed from one central location. By consolidating all systems on one platform, the move enables MGT to modernize its IT infrastructure, optimize terminal efficiency, and facilitate ongoing logistics innovations, while providing for a safer and more secure environment.
Located in close proximity to strategic markets in the U.S. and Canada, MGT has an annual TEU capacity in excess of 1.8 million, and services all aspects of terminal operations, including ship, gate and rail operations. Because of its geographic position and industry leadership, MGT is a strategic gateway between North America, Europe, and the Mediterranean for container cargo.
“This is one of a series of technical and operational implementations in the planning or execution stages,” explained MGT CEO Michael Fratianni. “Thanks to Navis and a highly motivated project team led by MGT IT Director Yannick Lacroix, the system roll-out was a flawless success in terms of system performance, stability and user acceptance.”
