Technical Trainer


Navis is the leader in Terminal Operations Systems (TOS) with 330 sites, 60% market share of the commercial TOS market.

From Long Beach to Hong Kong, Dubai to Brazil, and Rotterdam to Busan, Navis delivers mission critical enterprise software that is at the heart of running a terminal and services to optimize operations.
