Another for Octopi in Haiti

Port International du Cap Haitien is the latest terminal in Haiti to go live with the Octopi TOS from Navis.

Another for Octopi in Haiti

The terminal, which is operated by Cap Terminal S.A. (CTSA), joins the three facilities in Port au Prince that are now operated as Caribbean Port Services (CPS) in using the Octopi cloud-based TOS. All the terminals have now made the transition from a manual system based on spreadsheets to Octopi’s real time operating system.


Port International du Cap Haitien implemented Octopi in a rapid three-month implementation schedule. The terminal handles direct services to the USA and feeder calls to Caribbean transhipment hub. It services three shipping lines including CMA/CGM, Antillean Marine Shipping Corp and King Ocean Services. Current volume is 28,000 TEU per year.


“The port, which averages 20.5 vessel moves per hour, was challenged by a lack of accurate, timely data —both internally and externally—due to outdated and manual processes,” Navis said in a statement. “To support the port’s needs for a graphic representation and mapping of the yard, in addition to the ability to handle EDI manifest and vessel cargo information, it called on Octopi. The Port of Cap Haitien started the implementation process the week of February 24 and was ready to go live just three months later. With this, the port is able to replace manual functions such as inventory tracking and individuals mapping the yard, to ensure the most accurate and up-to-date data and seamless customer experience.


“We recognize the power of Octopi and the value it provides to smaller terminals like ours that need to get up to speed quickly with more modern technology without the upfront cost associated with a massive TOS overhaul, said Cesar de Windt, General Manager Operations, CTSA. “The rate at which we were able to go from planning to implementation, to go-live is proof of Navis’ expertise in TOS services, regardless of the terminal size and we are excited about the potential that Octopi holds as we continue to look for additional ways to streamline operations, upgrade processes and deliver optimal service for the shippers that come to call at our port.”


“Taking a terminal from paper processes to a cloud-based, modern TOS within three months, while maintaining operational uptime is a complex process,” said Martin Bardi, VP of Global Sales, Octopi. “The determination and dedication of the CTSA team in working towards improving their processes and commitment to training and developing their staff on the new system made the expedited turnaround time possible. It is a true testament to what can be achieved with Octopi and we’re excited to have them up and running and look forward to seeing how the new system will benefit their customers.”
