Zebra Enterprise Solutions, a division of Zebra Technologies, announced that Itapoá Terminais Portuários (ITP), a port located in Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil, will implement the NavisTM SPARCS N4 system to help better manage cargo shipments. ITP chose the ZES solution over several leading competitors to be the first site in Brazil to utilize SPARCS N4. ITP is ZES’ eighth customer in the country and 32nd in Latin America.
ITP will begin implementation in the third quarter of 2010, with plans to go live by 2011. The SPARCS N4 solution integrates gate-to–yard-to-vessel operations to increase responsiveness throughout the terminal and will allow Itapoá Terminais Portuários to provide better customer service by:
- Lowering administrative, support and operating costs
- Improving yard utilization and stacking yard capacity
- Optimizing vessel planning
- Increasing flexibility and business intelligence
