CTAS platform for real-time container terminal intelligence and control to interface as standard with Navis SPARCS N4 and 3.7 and terminal operating systems

by admin

April 30, 2012 – Lustenau, AUSTRIA – IDENTEC SOLUTIONS, a global provider of real-time visibility and control solutions for improving safety, productivity and efficiency in ports and terminals, has become a NavisReady partner.

This NavisReady certification means that IDENTEC SOLUTIONS’ CTAS terminal asset management system is now guaranteed to interface directly with Navis SPARCS N4 and 3.7 terminal operating system (TOS), with no need for additional modifications.

Combining advanced software with the latest identification, location and sensing technologies, including active RFID, RTLS, DGPS, wireless sensors and telemetrics, the CTAS platform enables ports and terminals to automate operational processes and control complex business events live and in real time.

CTAS solutions are currently deployed worldwide in both manned and automated container handling operations by regional and global terminal operators including APM Terminals, DP World, Georgia Ports Authority, ICTSI, and TTI. Key applications include street and terminal truck tracking, job stepping and promotion in container stack operations, container and equipment position detection, driver and personnel identification, and fleet management, monitoring and scheduling.

NavisReady is an initiative designed for technology partners to test and certify that their solutions are compatible and integrate seamlessly with the Navis SPARCS TOS. Certification is performed against major releases, and partner products can be re-certified with each new key release. The IDENTEC SOLUTIONS certification ensures that the key TOS software interface in CTAS is fully compatible with Navis SPARCS Release 3.7, plus the XPS and ECN4 versions of Navis N4.

“Ports and terminals are increasingly looking to implement innovative real-time solutions to automate container handling processes, capture critical operational data and improve the performance and safety of their workforce and equipment assets”, said Michael Dempsey, General Manager Ports and Terminals at IDENTEC SOLUTIONS.

“Robust and proven interfaces between this burgeoning class of terminal asset management technology and the major TOS providers are critical for efficient and cost-effective systems implementation. As part of our commitment to ensuring ease of use for our customers, we are delighted to have secured this NavisReady certification”.
