Thailand: KSSP Successfully Completes Implementation of Navis N4
- Business & Finance
Kerry Siam Seaport (KSSP), a world class multi-purpose deep seaport located at the Eastern Seaboard gateway of Thailand, has successfully completed its migration from SPARCS Express to N4.
This implementation is an important step in optimizing and improving overall terminal effectiveness to support scalability – and underscores KSSP’s commitment to a global gold standard terminal operating system for their customers.
“We believe that the container terminal business will be the key to our growth and success over the next few years,” said Arnajak Thangsathiyangkul, General Manager of Container Terminal Business, KSSP. “In order to best support our business and growth initiatives, we had to examine the technology used at the terminal and invest in the most trusted and effective IT systems. This resulted in our migration to N4. As part of the upgrade, we were able to complete extensive testing to reduce the potential for downtime in the terminal and ensure that our operations staff was properly trained.”
As the largest multipurpose port in Thailand and the gateway port to ASEAN, KSSP provides wide berth docking, container operations and warehouse storage in one location.
“Since KSSP places a high priority on technology and efficiency for their terminal operations, they required a more robust, effective and scalable TOS to meet growth objectives,” said Ian Sehgal, General Manager, Asia Pacific region at Navis. “The successful upgrade to N4 can be attributed to preparation and comprehensive system testing – and the positive outcome is a true example of collaboration and partnership. We look forward to continuing to work closely with KSSP as they continue to optimize and automate terminal operations.”
