Trucks line up to unload containers at Husky Terminal.

N4 SaaS is Navis’ cloud-based N4 TOS. This service will allow Husky Terminal to continue with our expansion and modernization while minimizing infrastructure and employment impacts. Husky Terminal is the first [terminal] to implement Navis’ cloud-based option, and we couldn’t be more excited.

This subscription includes monitoring and diagnostics, database maintenance, automated testing, EDI monitoring, application maintenance, as well as Navis Training support services.

“We are very excited about the move to N4 SaaS from an operational efficiency standpoint but also from a customer standpoint,” Dustin Stoker, President of Husky Terminal said to Supply Chain Quarterly. “We always aim to offer our customers best-in-class value and service and this platform lays the groundwork for us to not only be able to streamline our day-to-day operations but shift our focus from mundane daily tasks to those that will drive innovation and improvements, benefiting our customer base along the way.”

The move to N4 SaaS is another step forward in our ongoing modernization projects, which continue to increase our competitive advantage in the region. We recently completed work on a new gate complex and truck-staging area to speed up the entry process for trucks, while freeing up valuable real estate in our terminal for more redevelopment. 

“Husky Terminal joins a select group of terminals that have taken the leap into the future by moving its operations to the cloud,” Kim Kuesel, VP & General Manager, Americas, Navis said to Supply Chain Quarterly. “With the wave of maritime cargo traffic surging in the Northwest not expected to dissipate anytime soon, the migration of Husky’s operations to N4 SaaS allows the flexibility to scale operations to meet fluctuating capacity needs in real time while maintaining access to all of the features and functionality of an on-premise TOS.”
