Ports America is standardising on N4 as its core TOS. The system is used at its other facilities including Port Newark Container Terminal (PNCT) and New Orleans. “N4 is the foundation for further integrated technologies that will enable key digital innovation for sharing data throughout the supply chain, allowing greater forecasting and management of cargo movements within and beyond the ports,” Ports America concluded.
