Navis was recognized with the TOS Technology Company of the Year Award, which recognizes the Terminal Operating Systems software company that has brought the most innovative TOS software to the market. Navis was awarded this honor based on their impressive work implementing 330 TOS systems across the globe, and their innovative work on the updated Navis N4 TOS system. In 2017 alone, Navis customers completed 44 N4 go lives and upgrades, including landmark implementations at Qingdao New Qianwan Container Terminal Co., Ltd (QQCTN) and International Container Terminal Services Incorporated’s (ICTSI) Victoria International Container Terminal (VICT), two of the newest, fully automated container terminals in the world.

XVELA won the Best Digital Innovation of the Year award, which recognizes a software project, product or process undertaken by a company in the last year that is unique and innovative, while also providing a gold standard for information technology solutions for the industry at large. XVELA was chosen for this award as it has developed and successfully piloted the maritime industry’s first cloud collaboration platform for terminal operators and ocean carriers. The XVELA solution enables secure, real-time, many-to-many data exchange and collaboration between terminals, carriers, their operational partners and port constituents, beginning with stowage planning and execution and quickly expanding to berth window management and port call optimization.

“Being recognized by the Transport Arabia Excellence Awards for the innovative advances to ocean shipping technology being made by both Navis and XVELA to make global trade smarter, safer and more sustainable for all, is a great source of pride for our team,” said Andy Barrons, Chief Strategy Officer, Navis. “At the start of 2017, we unveiled our plans for a revitalized software strategy that enables container terminals and carriers alike to streamline their ocean supply chains and better collaborate together. Receiving these awards less than a year later is confirmation that we are on the right track and we look forward to maintaining our presence at the forefront of innovation for the marine shipping industry for years to come.”

The Transport Arabia Excellence Awards are hosted in partnership with Dubai Airports and DP World and recognize the best performing companies and individuals in each of the four modes of transportation – air, sea, rail and road – along with outstanding logistics and supply chain management service providers.
