OAKLAND, Calif. - March 20, 2008 - Navis, a Zebra Technologies company (NASDAQ: ZBRA) and the world's first company to automate marine terminal operating systems (TOS), today announced that its first Vietnam-based customer - Vietnam International Container Terminals (VICT) - has gone live with the Navis SPARCS terminal operating system at its Ho Chi Minh City facilities. SPARCS TOS will enable VICT to meet the growing demand for container handling capabilities, as container throughput is expected to grow 20 percent year-over-year, following Vietnam's entry into the World Trade Organization in January 2007. SPARCS will enhance VICT's yard and vessel planning capabilities to maximize terminal management and container handling productivity. This will help VICT manage increasing container volume while maintaining efficiency for its customers. VICT is now part of the more than 200 marine terminals running Navis solutions. Navis and VICT announced the planned installation of SPARCS in March 2007.

"We are already seeing a return on our investment," said Joseph Wann, General Director at VICT. "SPARCS is instrumental in supporting our expansion and future growth, while continuing to provide quality and customer-focused services. We are pleased to have the best-in-class Navis SPARCS solution up and running on-time and on-budget."

VICT began operating as the country's first purpose built container terminal in 1998. The terminal is the first dedicated container port project in Vietnam with the participation of foreign partners. Since 1998, handling capacity has increased from under 50,000 TEU in 1999, to nearly 450,000 TEU in 2007. VICT's expansion will bring total berth length to 678 meters, and raise handling capacity to 900,000 TEU by 2008.

"Navis will help VICT maintain the highest levels of customer service and productive operations in the rapidly growing Vietnam markets," said Charles Gerard, Director of Sales, APAC, Navis. "VICT has been an excellent customer and partner throughout the entire software deployment process, and we look forward to working with VICT as it helps brings increasing trade to the region."
