Turkey: YILPORT’s Development Program Moves Ahead

Gemport, YILPORT Holding’s largest container port in Turkey, has gone live with the latest version of the Navis N4 system.

The change to Navis N4 is part of YILPORT’s modernization and development program for YILPORT Gemport and Gemlik. YILPORT has already centralized its vessel planning, berth management, and logistics operations.

Soon the organization will open the new Gemlik terminal which includes the commissioning of four new MES cranes from Japan that are capable of working 18,000 TEU vessels with an anticipated baseline productivity of 35 moves per hour, per crane.

Omer Artuk, CTO of YILPORT Holding, said: “The migration from the home-grown terminal operating system to Navis N4 was performed solely by YILPORT employees. In simplest terms, Navis provided the software and we did the rest.”

The newly commissioned system immediately received a stress test as the terminal handled record cargo volumes immediately following the weekend transition. For April, Gemport container volumes were nearly 40,000 TEU with an all-time record of 50 container vessel calls.
