Bangkok live with N4

The Port Authority of Thailand has implemented the Navis N4 TOS in Bangkok, replacing CATOS from TSB in the process.

Navis has announced that the Bangkok-based Port Authority of Thailand (PAT) has successfully completed its implementation of the N4 TOS. PAT is a government-owned port, handling in the region of 1.5M TEU annually. 

In 2008 Korea’s TSB announced a project to implement its CATAOS TOS at Bangkok, as part of a project awarded to a consortium of Western Integration, Teranet Asia and TSB to deliver a fully integrated single window system for the port. 

Navis states that PAT was running CATOS “with a separate system and database for each individual operation in the terminal. This resulted in difficulties tracking containers through the various PAT facilities and delays in operational data management reporting. To remedy this, PAT sought out Navis’ expertise to implement a singular system that would provide more robust, detailed and accurate information on each operation being performed at the port”. 

Navis worked with its local partner SCP to implement N4 with customisations for PAT, including integration with PAT’s subsystem, as well as billing, customs and gate applications. For the implementation, more than 1,000 operations personnel at PAT were trained to use N4.

“Like many terminals, Port Authority of Thailand was looking to upgrade from their existing terminal system to one that helps streamline operations and delivers critical performance metrics in real time to further improve decision making that will benefit its customers,” said Mark Welles, Vice President and General Manager, Asia-Pacific, Navis. “The upgrade to N4 will provide PAT with a more comprehensive view of its operations, all in one place, making it easier to pivot on a moment’s notice to keep up with the changing industry dynamics and evolving customer needs. We are eager to help them streamline their operations and help to digitize and modernize their terminals.”

The move to N4 is an important part of PAT’s support for the government’s ‘Thailand 4.0’ initiative. “The government of Thailand is committed to developing new growth hubs that will become important centres for trade, investment, regional transportation and strategic gateways to Asia,” said Komol Sribangplinoy, Managing Director of Bangkok Port, PAT. “We are committed to playing a role in the success of Thailand 4.0 and our partnership with Navis to modernise operations is the first step in moving forward to a more innovative and technology-driven future.”
