Worldwide Terminals Fernandina (WTF) will implement Octopi, the cloud-based TOS from Navis, part of Cargotec Corporation

Port of Fernandina in Northeastern Florida, operated by WTF, has agreed to implement Octopi's software-as-a-service TOS.

Worldwide will run Octopi TOS to help the terminal effectively monitor, manage and improve operations at the site in real-time.

Octopi TOS is lightweight and designed to improve vessel planning and gate operations at small-to-medium terminals.

Currently handling two mid-size container lines and 300,000 tons of breakbulk cargo annually, Worldwide is located 2 miles from the open ocean in Fernandina Beach, FL and is focused on containers, breakbulk and project cargo.

Worldwide recently refinanced the Port's debt with a $27.6 million public bond financing, which includes approximately $10 million for capital investment to modernize and expand automation and the infrastructure at the terminal, including dredging to 40 feet MLW.

It selected Octopi's platform as part of its modernization plan to attract new container lines to their facility. Additionally, Worldwide wanted a system that could track cargoes moving between truck, vessel and rail, share real-time data through EDI with its customers and could automate processes such as customer billing and inventories.

"The Octopi team, the SaaS model, the scaling abilities, and the software's ease of functionality and intuitive nature all factored into our decision to choose Octopi," said Christopher T. Ragucci, CEO at Worldwide Terminals Fernandina. "Implementing Octopi's state-of-the-art TOS is consistent with our commitment to offering the highest level of comprehensive services available in the South Atlantic, at extremely competitive rates."
