Navayuga's IPMS now in all South African commercial seaports

South Africa's Transnet has announced that all eight commercial ports on the country's coastline are now using NIT's new web-based Integrated Port Management System (IPMS), a project aiming to transform them into 'smartPORTS'.

At the Port of Richards Bay, which was the last of the eight ports to use the system, the IPMS went live on November 26, 2015, three days after TNPA began registering port users onto the system network.

In addition to the Port of Richards Bay, the IPMS has been rolled out to the Ports of Durban, Cape Town, Saldanha, Port Elizabeth, Ngqura, East London and Mossel Bay over a four-month period begun in July 2015.

The new technology, which was developed by India-based Navayuga Infotech in collaboration with its South African partner Nambiti Technologies, replaces the manual processes used to monitor marine operations, vessel traffic services and terminal performance, and allows key port operations to be managed online and in real time across all the ports in the network.
