“Unfortunately, the issues were not resolved after the local system restart. The next step in the process of resolution is to perform a FULL system restart from a central perspective whereby ALL servers that make up the Navis central system are rebooted at the main datacentres including the terminal systems that connect to the central estate to clear any cache or log issues. This restart is estimated to take 3 hours which should be completed by 13:00 today,” TPT Acting Senior Manager: Service Delivery & Business Enablement ICT, Alvin Gulzar wrote.

TPT said that the full restart will affect ALL TPT and Transnet Freight Rail (TFR) Container Terminals utilizing Navis Terminal Operating System.

Gulzar said his team was working on resolving the issue currently being experienced and thanked customers for their patience.
