Octopi for Ultraport Punta Arenas

February 27, 2020


Ultraport decides Navis’ cloud-based Octopi TOS is the right fit for its terminal at Punta Arenas.

Octopi, part of Navis and Cargotec Corporation, has signed a partnership agreement with Chile-based terminal operator Ultraport to implement the Octopi TOS at its cargo terminal in Punta Arenas.

Ultraport operates nine terminals in Chile. In 2018 it embarked on an initiative to establish operational excellence across its different facilities, and Ultraport Punta Arenas will be the first terminal in Chile with a cloud-based TOS

“With annual throughput of over 400,000 tons and 30,000 TEU, the Punta Arenas terminal was the perfect candidate for Octopi’s nimble, cloud-based TOS: operations at Punta Arenas have steadily grown in both size and complexity over the last decade, and it needed a terminal operating system that simplifies day-to-day management and positions the terminal for continued success,” said Navis in a statement. “Ultraport chose to implement the Octopi TOS at Punta Arenas not only to enhance visibility, productivity, and overall customer satisfaction but also because they saw Octopi’s TOS as key to ensuring that the difficulties of manually managed terminal operations would not get in the way of their ambitious plans for growth”.

“For over almost four decades, Ultraport has worked tirelessly to build a culture of innovation at the terminals it operates while striving for the highest standards of safety—all while ensuring that the communities in which we operate are not only unharmed by but benefit meaningfully from our presence,” said Nelson Ojeda, Branch Manager at Ultraport Punta Arenas. “True to that commitment, Octopi by Navis’ powerful, yet easy-to-use TOS stands to make an immediate positive impact on our operation. The intuitive user interface, robust management tools and tracking capabilities will help the terminal make smarter, faster, more proactive business decisions—all at an affordable subscription-based price. We needed a TOS that can grow with us, and Octopi does just that.”

“Octopi is thrilled to partner with Ultraport Punta Arenas as they enter this new phase of operational excellence and visibility,” said Martin Bardi, VP Global Sales, Octopi. “While Navis has previously partnered with www.worldcargonews.com/news/tpsv-live-with-n41-32122">Ultramar, Ultraport’s parent company, on N4 terminal implementations, we are especially proud to see a regional leader in terminal operations such as Ultraport choose to partner with Octopi to bring cloud-based, enterprise-power tools to smaller terminals. We are excited to see how Punta Arenas uses the Octopi platform to bring clarity to their business and accelerate their success.”
