Revolutionizing Collaboration and Visibility Between Ocean Carriers & Terminal Operators -- In Real Time

Ocean carriers and terminal operators know that efficiencies can be gained, waste eliminated and revenue increased through better collaboration on vessel stowage planning and execution. The tools and incentives to change these business processes have been lacking -- until now.

Navis is the global market leader in a multi-billion dollar industry building and implementing marine terminal operating systems and optimization solutions at ports around the world. From Long Beach to Hong Kong, Dubai to Brazil, and Rotterdam to Busan, Navis delivers mission critical enterprise software that is at the heart of running a terminal and services to optimize operations. We are an innovative and profitable logistics software company building mission critical solutions that enable the world economy.
