Octopi, part of Navis and Cargotec Corporation, the provider of operational technologies and services that unlock greater performance and efficiency for leading organizations throughout the global shipping industry, announced today that Red Hook Terminals has signed a subscription agreement for Octopi by Navis at its Newark, NJ and Brooklyn, NY locations.

Red Hook Terminals selected Octopi’s cloud-based TOS because it offered a solution that would help its business become more dynamic and remain competitive in the industry.

With over 30 years of experience, Red Hook Terminals is the only terminal operator with facilities in Brooklyn and Port Newark. At its locations, Red Hook is able to handle any size or type of cargo to serve beneficial cargo owners and shippers east and west of the Hudson River, as well as regions north and south. To remain competitive in the evolving industry, Red Hook Terminals was looking to upgrade its TOS at the New York and New Jersey locations to a flexible system that would be able to be deployed with maximum value and little IT investment. As Red Hook Terminal’s business goals were to increase visibility, productivity, and optimize operations at the terminals, Octopi was the only choice to meet their needs with maximum ROI.

Tom Griffith, Executive Vice President of Red Hook Terminals, said:

“By choosing Octopi’s cloud-based TOS, we will be able to easily transition to a more modern and comprehensive system, which will upgrade our offerings to benefit our business and customers. Octopi’s functionality and utilization of real-time data will give us the tools and critical insights into our operation that will allow us to improve productivity and efficiency at our terminals.”

“With Octopi’s innovative TOS, we are able to provide a more affordable and nimble solution to help terminals reach their full business potential with enterprise-level functionality. We are thrilled to partner with Red Hook Terminals and look forward to helping them transition to a new system to optimize their operations and better serve their customers in the region.”
