NAVIS/POS Knowledge Exchange Partnership Program 2016-08-09

In mid-July 2016 the Port of Salalah (POS) and Navis launched the Terminal Business Knowledge Exchange Partnership Program.

The Port of Salalah strategically located in Sultanate of Oman at the major East-West Shipping Lane, is a large multipurpose port managed by APM Terminals and a world class transshipment hub.

Navis, a part of the Cargotec Corporation, and provider of operational technologies that unlock greater performance and efficiency for the world’s leading terminal operators, supplies the mission critical Terminal Operating System (TOS) and services to POS.

As part of the Port of Salalah’s strategy to be a world class Gateway port, POS teamed up with Navis on a two week knowledge exchange program in July 2016. ‘’POS and Navis top management together developed this program to enhance and foster better a closer partnership to share expertise and improve performance at the terminal’’ said Abdulhakeem Zidi, the Senior Manager, Systems - CT .

The exchange program focused on the following common objects:

    • Enhance Navis personnel’s understanding of the operational models at POS in the Middle East region.

    • Develop with a common understanding of responses to the terminals subsequent cases and business requests.
    • Enable POS to develop a better understanding of Navis support team capabilities and the process for case management.
