March 8, 2019

Specialty software provider adds cloud-based option for small container and mixed cargo terminals

Navis, a maker of terminal operating software in use at more than 340 major shipping ports in 80 countries, announced today it would acquire Octopi, a Miami-based developer of cloud-based port management tools. With the move, Navis is hoping to appeal to the thousands of smaller terminals worldwide that are looking to modernize but lack the technology infrastructure and expertise needed to support full deployment of the vendor’s flagship N4 TOS platform.
