DP World Prince Rupert Container Terminal successfully completed the transition to

Prince Rupert is the second largest container terminal in Canada

Manno — November 15, 2018 — DSP Data and System Planning successfully supported the transition of DP World Prince Rupert Terminal to the NAVIS N4 terminal operating system (TOS).

Prince Rupert selected Navis N4 to improve efficiency, guarantee scalability and sustain their expansion plans.

The Prince Rupert Terminal expansion was unveiled in August 2017 to increase the facility's capacity by 50%, making it one of the fastest growing container ports in North America. Part of the expansion involved installing massive cranes, bringing the port capacity to 1.35million TEUs annually.

One of the key factors that have helped Prince Rupert succeed is its proximity to Asia, compared to other North American ports. The expansion process required the transition from the legacy terminal operating system to Navis N4 terminal operating system, which was successfully completed on October 18, 2018.

All operating processes have been affected by the TOS migration and Prince Rupert Management, smartly aware of the disruptive impact of such a big change, called onboard the best expertise worldwide and assigned to Swiss Company DSP, first Navis implementation partner, the Project Management, the Software Quality Assurance and the Business Process analysis and review.DSP team, composed of Daniele Labate, Robert De Belder and Judith Morton, has been involved since November 2017 in the project and led the terminal through the transition.

“Terminal operations were stopped for a few hours in the night to allow for data migration. Operations were restarted promptly and were quickly ramped-up and back to standard performances in three days after Go-live,” says Daniele Labate, Senior Manager of DSP Data and System Planning and Project Manager for Prince Rupert N4 Go Live.“

Go-live was a success. Thank you to the entire team led by DSP. Our terminal is now equipped with NAVIS N4, the latest generation TOS, enabling us to better plan for more volume and increased productivity, all while further improving the level of service offered to customers” – says Ricardo Alvarez, Director of Operations of DP World Prince Rupert
