“The collaboration with Navis for the roll-out of the N4 terminal operating system in ports and handling companies worldwide complements our strongly expanding strategic IT consulting business unit. We are able to contribute our extensive knowledge of ports to this collaboration, where we benefit in particular from our many years of experience with the integration of processes at the interface between people, machines and IT systems. Our strategic goal is to establish a global competence center for consulting and training in connection with terminal management systems. In view of our collaboration with Navis, it is important to us that we will continue to be able to provide expert and impartial advice to our port and terminal customers when it comes to IT strategy and other matters,” said Henning Kinkhorst, Managing Director of HPC Hamburg Port Consulting GmbH.
