Navis implements its N4 TOS at Kazakhstan’s Khorgos Gateway Dry Port


Cargotec company Navis has successfully implemented its N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at Khorgos Gateway Dry Port in Kazakhstan.

With an aim to build a modern dry port operation, the terminal seeks to meet increasing transshipment volume by implementing software to complement its high-level automation.

"We are putting all of our focus on making Khorgos the epicentre of this new trade hub that in five years could be on par with cities like Dubai."

Khorgos operations director Jayant Lanjewar said: “The development and expansion at Khorgos Gateway represents a major stepping stone for Kazakhstan’s history and future.

"We are putting all of our focus on making Khorgos the epicentre of this new trade hub that in five years could be on par with cities like Dubai.

“With such ambitious growth goals, it is vital that our operations surpass industry standards and thus, Navis was the clear choice when selecting our TOS, as its solution is the most comprehensive in the industry.”

Navis N4 facilitates faster data exchange among terminal functions that includes the recording of all TOS services, clear communication of process-oriented operations and efficient planning for higher productivity.

Managed by DP World, Khorgos Gateway Dry Port is located on Kazakhstan-Chinese border, along the New Silk Road. It is expected to become a central trade destination for manufacturing, transshipping, warehousing, importing, and exporting.

Khorgos Gateway expects to process an annual TEU of between 45,000 and 50,000 this year and between 175,000 and 200,000 TEUs in 2017.
