Rana Industrial Terminal (RIT) chooses Grieg Connect’s Terminal Operating System (TOS) as part of a significant uptick in activity.

RIT is located in Mo i Rana, the third-largest city in Northern Norway and an important regional industrial centre thanks to its plentiful supply of hydroelectricity and raw materials. The terminal is owned by Mo Industripark AS.

One of the terminal’s largest clients is Elkem Rana ferrosilicon plant, is located in the same complex. Integrated logistics specialist North Sea Container Line (NCL) is the main container shipping line connecting RIT with ports in Northern Europe.

Mo i Rana Port is a key intermodal logistics hub in the government’s latest National Transport Plan. Financing has been granted for major underwater dredging works. Next step is the construction of a new deep-water quay for large vessels. Strong industry growth stimulates further economic development in the region. Battery producer FREYR plans to build a giant new battery-cell production plant at Mo as the maritime electrification trend gathers momentum in 2022

“RIT and our surroundings are set to expand dramatically and we clearly needed to upgrade our digital efficiency as part of our modernisation plan “This TOS is a great fit with our requirements, and as an advanced cloud-based platform it will not only enhance our own predictability and service performance, but also the competitiveness of our customers. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

RIT Managing Director Alf Øverli.

“We look forward to joining forces with RIT on container handling, supporting them on their journey to becoming a world-class logistics hub,” said Grieg Connect CEO Vidar Fagerheim. “Digitalisation is all about reducing costs, saving precious time, and future-proofing operations for maximum value in the long term.”

The TOS implementation went live in June 2021
