Husky Terminal accelerates technological advancement with move to N4 SaaS

Husky Terminal is an operator of a marine freight terminal located in the Port of Tacoma, Washington, supporting nearly $3 billion in economic activity in the local region. The company specializes in offering quality terminal and stevedoring services including vessel berthing, shift scheduling, container movement and transportation services, allowing it to impart comprehensive and safe cargo movement capabilities to its clients.

Husky Terminal signed a subscription agreement to implement N4 SaaS – Navis’ cloud-based N4 TOS, which allowed the terminal to continue its ongoing modernization efforts without having to deploy and maintain new infrastructure and commit additional IT resources. As part of the subscription with N4 in the Navis Cloud, Husky will have access to Navis 360 Managed Services portfolio including monitoring and diagnostics, database maintenance, automated testing, EDI monitoring, application maintenance as well as Navis Training support services.

Husky Terminal recently completed work on a new gate complex and truck-staging area to speed up the entry process for trucks, while freeing up valuable real estate at the waterfront terminal for more redevelopment. The move to N4SaaS with Managed Services and Training creates a foundation that will be built upon to further optimize operations in the future, including Equipment Control and optimizing RTG operations.

Kim Kuesel, VP & General Manager, Americas, Navis, said:

“Husky Terminal joins a select group of terminals that have taken the leap into the future by moving its operations to the cloud. The benefits of the cloud are undeniable as terminals continue to navigate a wildly complex and often unpredictable supply chain in light of pandemic-related disruptions. With the wave of maritime cargo traffic surging in the Northwest not expected to dissipate anytime soon, the migration of Husky’s operations to N4 SaaS allows the flexibility to scale operations to meet fluctuating capacity needs in real time while maintaining access to all of the features and functionality of an on-premise TOS.”
