We are thrilled that Maritime Logistics Professional has featured Octopi terminal operating system, discussing the changes we're bringing to the shipping industry. Dubbing us "the new kid in town", the article reviews our modern take on TOS.
"In a world where value is often (incorrectly) measured in terms of how many boxes you can cram onto a post-Panamax containership, terminal operators are searching for the right IT solution to provide that all-important competitive edge. Answering the call is a Miami-based software company that provides Terminal Operating Software (TOS)."
Octopi announced that Red Hook Terminals has signed a subscription agreement for Octopi by Navis at its Newark, NJ and Brooklyn, NY locations. Red Hook Terminals selected Octopi’s cloud-based TOS because it offered a solution that would help its business become more dynamic and remain competitive in the industry.
Octopi announced that Tropical Shipping has signed a subscription agreement at its St. Croix location. This agreement comes on the heels of the Tropical St. Thomas go-live, making St. Croix the second Tropical Shipping terminal that has signed with Octopi this year.
Despite setbacks due to COVID-19 restrictions, the Navis and Ultraport teams worked together to complete the project on schedule via remote assistance. After the implementation was complete, Punta Arenas has become the first terminal in Chile with a cloud-based TOS and has already seen the benefits of a more up to date system.
Octopi's successful go live at Tropical Shipping’s St. Thomas site was performed with 100% remote assistance. We interviewed Mark Chapman, VP Business Operations at Tropical Shipping St. Thomas to learn more about what made this implementation so successful.
