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)."
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.
The implementation of Octopi at Tropical St. Thomas has positively impacted customer service and has made employees more efficient to better perform critical tasks. Gate and vessel operations are now more productive and the “equipment control” team has saved an average of 6-8 hours a week with Octopi due to less repetitive communication and data verification, in addition to the introduction of EDI.
FMT implementing Octopi at Port Manatee will provide visibility into its operations to keep its customers and FMT employees informed in real-time and will aid in its business goals of increased quality, efficiency and productivity.
