Zebra Enterprise Solutions has announced that Haifa Port Company in Israel will replace its 20-year-old container management system with the terminal operating system Navis SPARCS N4.
Set to begin in the second half of 2010, the Port of Haifa will implement SPARCS N4 at its four port container terminals to help manage the expected growth of Israel’s gate to trade. The port will rely on the Web-based SPARCS N4 operating system to manage the movement of all containers from gate to yard and to vessel, offering increased stacking yard capacity and greater visibility over resources.
The Port’s Carmel Container Terminal is being used only as a storage area, but will be fully used as one of the Port’s newest and most advanced container terminals in 2010.
The Port’s Chief Information Officer states that there is an expected increase of approximately 1.25 million twenty-foot equivalent units, a measure of container size and capacity, after the Carmel new container terminal is fully operational.
