Salalah Port, Navis join hands to boost efficiency

Salalah: Port of Salalah (PoS) and Navis launched the Terminal Business Knowledge Exchange Partnership Programme recently.
PoS is strategically located in the Sultanate of Oman in the major East-West Shipping Lane, and is a large multipurpose port managed by APM Terminals and a world-class transhipment hub.
Navis, which is part of the Cargotec Corporation, and provider of operational technologies that unlocks greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading terminal operators, supplies the mission critical Terminal Operating System and services to the Port of Salalah.
As part of the PoS strategy to become a world class Gateway port, PoS teamed up with Navis on a two-week knowledge exchange programme in July 2016.
“PoS and Navis’s top management together developed this programme to enhance and foster a closer partnership to share expertise and improve performance at the terminal,’’ said Abdul Hakeem bin Zidi Tabok, senior manager of Systems–CT.
The exchange programme focused on following common objects represented in enhancing Navis personnel’s understanding of the operational models at PoS in the Middle East region, enabling Navis Support teams to better understand the PoS environment for better investigation of system issues, operational issues or product functionality, developing a common understanding of responses in the terminal’s subsequent cases and business requests, enabling PoS to develop a better understanding of the Navis support team’s capabilities and the process for case management, sharing best practices within selected regions and across the globe on business practices, as well as the Navis product’s functionality.
“Both PoS and Navis look forward to the programme serving as a platform for an ongoing collaborative partnership, expanding across various departments in Navis and PoS,” stated Joseph Schofield, chief operation officer of the PoS Container Terminal (CT).
