Cloud N4 at Vuosaari and Mussalo

Steveco's container terminals in the two Finnish seaports have become the world's first to run Navis' terminal operating system using the Cloud technology.

The company has been looking for a new system after its legacy provider informed that it would no longer develop future versions of its software. As such, Steveco decided to invest in Navis N4. As part of the implementation, all Navis servers (incl. N4, XPS, ECN4, and the backend database) are hosted in a private cloud data centre managed and maintained by the Espoo-headquartered software and services company Tieto.

"Going into this process, we knew that we wanted to host our new terminal system in the cloud, and thus, needed a partner who could meet our needs both technically and philosophically. Navis was truly a strategic partner in this endeavor, ensuring all phases of the implementation process were successful and minimal disruptions to customers were experienced. We are very pleased with the levels of service provided by the Navis team, the system’s reliability overall and are confident that the use of N4 will have tremendous benefits for our employees, and our customers for years to come," Tapio Mattila, Senior Vice President at Steveco, commented.

Guenter Schmidmeir, Navis' VP and General Manager, EMEA, added, "The cloud offers tremendous benefits for hosting a terminal system like N4, including on-demand availability, rapid elasticity of the IT infrastructure, pooling of IT resources, as well as clear flexibility and cost efficiencies. We are incredibly proud to be part of this transformative N4 implementation project, and applaud Steveco’s progressive view on using the latest solutions available to optimize terminal performance. The project's success will absolutely serve as a strong example for others in the global maritime shipping community who may be exploring or questioning how they too can harness the power of cloud within in their own IT environments."
