The world’s fifth-biggest carrier has announced it will implement XVELA’s cloud-based Carrier and Terminal Collaboration Services.
Hapag-Lloyd said it would initiate the global rollout on one of Hapag-Lloyd’s premier Latin American services and will continue to broaden throughout its terminal partners.
XVELA is an affiliate of Navis and its software aims to increase transparency throughout the transportation supply chain and more efficiently employ assets and resources.
To explain its product, XVELA said: “Through real-time collaboration, shared data and actionable visibility across the vessel rotation, XVELA enables terminals, carriers and their operational partners to work together to simplify, coordinate and synchronize their operations, starting with stowage planning and quickly expanding to berth management and port call optimization.”
Commenting on his company’s decision, Hapag-Lloyd’s senior director of fleet support Joern Springer said: “Through increased visibility throughout the transport chain, all involved parties will be able to optimize asset and resource planning – resulting in greater accuracy and a considerable improvement of collaboration levels.”
XVELA’s VP of global sales Martin Bardi said: “Hapag-Lloyd, recognized as an innovative industry leader committed to delivering superior customer services, will collaborate with its terminal network in XVELA to share critical information in real time. The optimization of stowage across each of their services will further improve operational efficiency and consistency. The network effect of onboarding another large global carrier will serve as a catalyst for other carriers and terminals to follow.”
