Navis, the provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for leading organizations throughout the global shipping industry, announced today that Sri Lanka Port Authority (SLPA) has gone live with Navis N4 at its Colombo Port as part of its modernizations efforts to remain competitive in the industry and optimize operations for efficiency at the port.

SLPA’s Colombo Port is a growing shipping hub in the South Asia Region, acting as a gateway for cargo to Europe, East and South Asia, the Persian Gulf, and East Africa. The transshipment port operates at 2.5 million TEU annually, and was developed to accommodate deep water berths and the latest mainline vessels. As its business was growing, SLPA’s Colombo Port needed an advanced TOS to update its offerings and aid in its business goals of modernizing the facility to ensure enhanced safety, efficiency and productivity at its location.

The Steering Committee at SLPA noted, “Working with Navis on the implementation of N4 at Colombo Port has been a collaborative effort from Access International, Navis & SLPA teams. When COVID hit last year, the organizations showed dedication to execute the project from start to finish despite the challenges brought on by the pandemic. We are thrilled to be running with N4 so we can provide the best possible service to our customers through new and automated processes which will help optimize our operations at the port.”

“One of our goals at Navis is to keep cargo flowing for our customers, and we are glad to have worked with SLPA to ensure that their team was able to implement N4 successfully during a challenging time for the industry,” said Charles Gerard, VP & General Manager, Asia-Pacific at Navis. “We are looking forward to helping them reach their business goals through our innovative solutions and hope to be an asset to them as their business scales.”
