Along with Navis itself, Navis World has expanded to encompass the broader shipping industry and the Navis Inspire awards now celebrate “terminal operators and ocean carriers using the broad suite of Navis solutions to innovate, optimise and deliver value and positive impact at their facilities and in their communities at large”.
